Got these new TTX sway bar links and what a difference in thickness, weight, and ball joint size. I replaced LCA and sway bar bushings, too.
I ran into a problem during install though. It comes with an oval shaped locked nut. I have to hold the ball joint with a hex while bolting the lock nut. The nut was so tight that it caused me to strip the hex. Now I can't hold the ball joint and the ball just keeps turning so I cut off the lock nut, warranted the link, purchased grade 8 non-locking nuts, lock washers, and blue lock tight. Haven't tested them yet, still gotta do the other side.

There's a technique to dealing with that type of install, but it's hard to explain in text. Just take your time, and I hope these work for you. I've seen this company listing some beefy parts for our outer suspension pieces in recent years on RockAuto, and haven't tried them, yet.
