    *Update* the +1 3500HD front end links rusted out and of course the bolt snapped upon removal.

    I'm going to make my own adjustable's picking up parts from the hardware store - does anyone have good knowledge on determining the proper height?

    Year and a half.. have two other sets, one older, one newer. All 3 sets the powder coating is flaking off.

    Bolt snapped right above the threads (swaybar side)

    The seller ordered me a replacement that arrived next day. The brand name is "SSM".

    Looking at the listing now and here's what is written:

    NEW AND IMPROVED!! - We have just released our NEW IMPROVED Heavy Duty 1" Longer Sway Bar End Link Kit. This kit now features a 3/4" powder coated solid steel hex bar center section. Larger, correct size, Energy Suspension HYPER-FLEX ™ Performance Polyurethane sway bar end link bushings. These larger bushings are the correct size for the HD sway bar, they are not a universal one size fits all bushing. Bushings are made from a firm polyurethane and provide more overall mass and surface area than a smaller universal bushing. Then we top them off with Grade 8 zinc plated hardware. This unit is far superior than the factory part and will work on a leveled or bone stock truck. End Link Set does both sides. MADE IN THE USA!!!

    I'm going to compare side x side and give this set a try.
