Default upgraded end links and sway bar

ended up upgrading to the 20mm rear sway bar. very happy. end links had to be replaced and ended up purchasing a set of MOOG endlinks. so far so good.

really tempted to put on a front strut tower bar.....

Did you replace the endlinks because they needed to be, or because you waned to?

Are those endlinks designed for the lifted-from-the-factory Subaru vehicles (Outback, Tribeca, Forester, Baja, XV Crosstrek)? Because if they're not, the sway bar won't behave as normal and the angles in which the sway bar endlinks sit will be unnatural.

I tried some front endlinks only to realize they were too short since they were for the regular-ride-height Subaru vehicles (Impreza, WRX/WRX STI, Legacy).

replaced because one of the bolts on the OEM links would not cooperate.

Might as well replace them. If you live in salt belt areas, the links can get pretty rusty.
