Just wanted to share some new adjustable endlinks I found on Amazon. Seem very beefy and I haven’t found anything comparable to the price!

Those are the same as the GRP end links, which I would avoid. They have a tendency to rust or break and can be difficult to work with.

The smallest spacer with the ball joints sized to min length are also equal to OEM size of the rear end links for a gen 3. Not very good for lowered rides.

I thought grp was the most recommended I’d seen from this site? Which ones would you recommend, whiteline?
Thanks for the feedback,
Shane

If you are not lowered Moog. Very beefy and well made.

If you are lowered I would go with Whiteline. I use HardRace end links with my H&R springs and they work great, but are hard to source.

You can find Whiteline's various sizes at the following site:

Thanks man, appreciate it. I’m lowered about 1” in front and 1.5 in rear. Think I’ll go with white lines in the front and was going to get the Megan racing camber toe and control arms for the rear. I was surprised how much the camber was off in the rear after lowering. Don’t wanna kill these new tires too fast…

I have the Megan Racing adjustable camber and toe arms in rear and the Moog camber bolts up front (SPC camber bolts work too).

I also have the H&R springs 28821-2 (get -1 for 2.0L engine) and they work and ride great with Koni Special Active struts/dampers.

Im lowered 1" with godspeed track springs and I have Moog bar ends. Not enough of a drop to not use moog. Nice 22mm with grease fittings for cheap!

Any thoughts on this for a 2010 sport GT?

Which Bilstein dampers are those? B8 are supposed to be paired with lowering springs, but 1” is mild enough that those might be B4, or B6.
How is the ride and handling with that combo?

Those are the B4 OE struts. B6 and B8 have yellow bodies with covered blue shafts.

I think it's the perfect drop for handling and comfort. 15mm hub centric spacers with no rub on factory 18's. Everything must be uber tight, and I use spring sleeves so my setup is as quiet as factory. Too many clunky creaky cars with lowering springs!
