Coilover Endlinks

Endlinks are necassary when slamming an e46 on coils. I've heard rumors that 2007-2009 Impala SS rear endlinks will do the job, can anyone verify?

Why not just get adjustable ones when you "slam" yo ride, bro? They're like $100.

Why would you go to the dealership.. LOL LOL

I got some for my old 330 from parts source, they were around $40 each.

And it depends what coilovers you get, sometime you can use OEM link.

I can confirm. I had impala ss on my e46.. Super heavy duty, price was reasonable.
They were the rears off a 5.8(or whatever the v8 was) impala ss....
Imho, adjustable endlinks are a complete waste of money. Why would anyone want an adjustable end link? Just sayin.

You apparently have no idea how a proper suspension is supposed to work.

That's why my cross balance is 50.1%.

You apparently need to go back to school.

Another person that knows more than me.
This board is full of experts! Wicked.
Why don't you educate me how adjustable sway links are better than a solid one ?

No problem. The ones I had were MOOG with greasable (servicable) joints.

I'll ask when I get there today regarding brands, my options from hotspot are a standard or heavy duty link, I'll choose the heavy duty if they don't have MOOG.
