sway bar end links bushings worn

Hello All,

Have some questions regarding the sway bar end link bushings, am i better off replacing the complete sway bar end link or just replacing the bushing and re-using the OE sway bar link?

Also is there a certain brand I should use. When i googled sway bar end links i noticed that MOOG, XRF, MEVOTECH kept popping up.

Thanks

It depends on the type of bushings that you have. There's the standard rubber bushing and the "spherical" bushing. From the research that I have done on my truck, if it's the spherical bushing, then the entire link must be replaced

hasn't already listed for their truck!

Is there a way to tell which of the two types mentioned I would have? Also does anyone know where is the best place to buy them?
Thanks

I know this thread is a little old, but I'm looking to replace my Front Sway Bar Links, and I'm wondering if I have the correct part number. I'm looking at Moog K80274, K80273, and K80201 for the sway bar bushing kit. I do have a leveling kit on my truck, so I wasn't sure if I need longer arms for the link kit.
My truck is a 2000 Ford F350 SRW 4x4 with front leveling kit.

Do lifted and leveled trucks need longer Front Sway Bar Links?

Just replaced mine today using MOOG end links but I have an 08. Not sure they will be the same ones. If it helps, mine is also leveled and used same size as OE. They did not need to be longer.
