No problem, I'm digging these as good replacements for my Moog ones that I replaced about a year ago, and I think they're starting to clunk and squeak again after I greased them about 4 times already. On the website it says 90 bucks but well worth it if you dont have to service them again for a long time.

Exactly the idea. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can buy replacement bushings, which will make a huge difference in the long run.

what did you use to grease them with? WD-40, PB blaster, white lithium grease ?

Any of those work. But only until it is washed/ rubbed away. The only real cure is to replace them.

The moog replacement ones have zerk fittings, I just used good old black grease. But there's something I don't like about the moog ones, they have rubber cones that go around the inside of the elbow links and do not completely seal the joint like the oem ones. So the grease always leaks out of there over time, and I guess there is also the chance of water contamination, or dirt.

I put a pair of these on the front a couple weeks ago, the front feels tighter and no noise at all and i've been driving it a little rough.

The autozone rear swaybar links went bad, the rubber cracked and came all the way off. Time to put suspension maxx links on the rear.

you guys still running these maxxlinks? I guess they are the best?

Just wondering, as I just did mine with OEM replacement GM parts. Got them from the dealer FREE or I would have bought them... but still have a little clunking happening. guess it may be the rear, or something else.....

Dealer with the hand shake here screwed me over......

installed today them today

I installed the Smaxx front (666f's). i had issues with the way they fit, they did not just slide in. I had to use a bar to lift the sway bar up in order for the links to fit. was i supposed to do that. i installed as the instructions showed. will i have problems if i did this? if i effed up what can i do to fix?
