just bought R/T sway bars for my 300 Limited 3.5l. Just wondering if I need to upgrade to larger endlinks? looking at the BWoody Charger sway bar links, for $219, is there a better price or is that good.
I'm guessing you'll be told that there's a difference between "need" and "want" lol. In your case, I'd say these are probably more of a "want" item
Depends how hard you beat your car, I suppose.
Here comes change....
Im not a street racer, i do like to go fast. I have to order rear endlinks anyways so i can add the rear sway bar, so i didnt know if the oem will work ill save the money and put it toward something else.
My wife told me I needed a bigger endlink................... what does she mean??

If your end links need replacing, we carry adjustable ones front and rear. They're a little more money than the BWoody's, but you can adjust them for added firmness as you see fit.

how long are those guaranteed to be noise free?
I'd say just replace with OEM if it's cheaper and put the money somewhere else. I mean, if you find bigger stuff for the same price, then why not, right? But if it's gonna cost you more, for something you don't really need......
I don't think I've ever actually heard of end links failing (with notable exceptions for some folks who road-race), but when I had the suspension upgraded on my Charger I had the rear end links replaced (because I was planning on road racing). I was very surprised how small and skinny they are on these 2-ton cars! I told the shop guy to use them on a Miata if he needed to, and he said he couldn't... the one's on the Miata were bigger! ROFL

"I reject your conjecture and substitute my actual experience."
The main reason on the rears is because the sway bar is not very big, the stock rear links from a strength stand point are very good. The bad thing about the rear links is that they use bushings are each end of the link, and there is a lot of lost energy due to the mushiness. This is why we sell a double ball end link for the rear, it's stronger, but it's not the main reason to upgrade.
The fronts are another story, the OE links are good, there is no bones about that. They don't typically bend, and if the ball socket does go bad they are not that expensive to replace.
We have removed a number of the heim joint type links do to noise, some are better than others, but every one that i've seen will make noise eventually. The upside to them is that they are typically adjustable, which for most is useless. The people that need adjustables are the people that are running their cars hard, setting them up for road racing, corner wighting them, ect. Many of these people could care less if they make noise, as long as they work.
We have an adjustable front link that will be available in a couple weeks, it uses a spherical sealed end, and is adjustable. These do not make noise, and are warrantied for 2 years, or 36k, which ever comes first. So if one fails and starts to make noise, we will send a replacement piece to replace the bad part.
We have sold a ton of these on Camaro's and they have been flawless.
The LX, LC, GTO, G8 and a couple others are going to be available very soon.
The links below are Camaro links, and are very long, nearly twice as long as the LX links are.
