HP Autowerks Adjustable Swaybar Endlinks

When you lower the vehicle, the swaybar is moved from the ideal factory geometry to an offset that decreases the ability of the swaybar to perform. The swaybar frame mount and the end of the bar should be on the same horizontal plane. The factory end links are a solid piece. When the car is lowered, the OEM links cannot compensate for the longer length needed to keep the swaybar in its ideal location. Get immediate response from your sway bar and precise control over your suspension. What this means to you is tighter, more responsive handling.

HP Autowerks is happy to introduce adjustable end links. With adjustable end links you can return the bar to its ideal leverage point while lowered. They also afford the peace of mind that the links or shock link mount will not fail as is common in factory units, as they will now be adjusted properly. The links are adjustable in length up to an additional 1.25" over stock. HP Autowerks end links are adjustable while on the vehicle.

These end links will fit the following vehicles:
E9x 3-Series and M3 Front (no-xi)
E82 3-Series Front

If you have lowered your car or using other after anti roll bar with cheap endlinks, you need these!

I plan on putting on a setup that would drop the car 1.5" in front. I am running the E93 front bar (bought from Harold of course).

I have run aftermarket adjustable end links in the past and all end up becoming noisy at some point. I would love to keep the stock for that reason but it is not good to pre-load the bar. I hope (and expect) the ones Harold sells to be noise-free even after they are on the car for a while.

Our adjustable endlink kits use oem style joints. When installed and adjusted properly they will last a long time. I have seen them break when the installation wasn't proper and too much pre-load were put on them.

these hook up to the stock sway bar correct?

Also, if i have a 1 inch drop, the proper adjustment for the adjustable end links will be a setting longer than stock correct?

If i have a 1" drop should i get the 12" endlinks (min length) ?

Yes to the first two questions. On the third you can iether get 11.5"(adjustable up to 1.25" longer) or 12"

Adjustable sway bar end links

FK coil over owners...If your FK end links are shot, these are an excellent replacement for them!

From center to center of the joints should be 11.5", you can adjusted for another 1" longer, that should be all you need.

Perfect. Is there a left or right or are they interchangeable ?

There is no left or right, they are the same both sides.
