Sway bar links

What's the best way to go for sway bar links/ bushings? I need to replace mine and I'm wondering if I should replace the whole link or just the bushing.

been looking for some bushings for mine. I am just going to replace the bushings and not the link arms. I still have to go measure the diameter but pretty sure there are 32mm. I will post a link of where I am gonna buy mine from.

4 bolts, real quick. If you don't have a lift, it'll take you longer to lift your truck up, than to change them. btw, easier to change if the truck is level.

If the truck was lifted at all it would allow you to replace them with the proper length links. The grease zerks allow you to maintain them easily which will make them last longer and prevent squeaks. The bushings are polyurethane which is much better than the stock rubber ones and just as good as the Energy suspension replacements bushings.

I'd be interested, too bad I'm not lifted at all. (And I just replaced the links, and didn't get rid of my noise)
