My Vehicle: '14 Crosstrek
Default end links

Has anyone installed front and/or read end links?

my understanding is that regular imprezza REAR end links are too short for the rear. I've heard a few times that any '11+ Impreza front end link will fit though.

can someone clear this up please.

thanks.

The Impreza uses Moog parts K750049 front and K750486 rear, the Crosstrek uses K750084 front and K750404 rear.

Beware, I have tried using "upgraded", stiffer front end links intended for the Impreza (both GJ/GP chassis and GE/GH/GR/GV chassis), and they do NOT fit properly.


They can be INSTALLED, but as I found out, the heavy-duty Kartboy endlinks for the front sway bar are TOO short, and will result in unwanted noises and maybe even a slightly bent sway bar.


The endlinks used on the XV are compatible with the Outback (I think the BL/BP chassis), so if there are better sway bar end links available for the BL/BP chassis Outback, they may very well be the ones intended for the XV too.
