When you select genuine OEM, you can rely on the high quality and effectiveness of the product without having to guess if it will work with your vehicle. Protecting your investment is important and choosing the right parts can be challenging. So don’t waste another minute searching for a replacement that might work; stick with what you know and get the same parts and accessories the dealership uses.
With the prevalence of pot holes and bumpy roads, your entire suspension needs to withstand shocks, so stabilizer links employ cast iron, steel and alloy in their construction. Most have at least one ball joint for connecting with adjacent suspension components. A minority of stabilizer links lack ball joints altogether. Japanese and European car makers often employ this flat type. Worn stabilizer links affect steering, ride and fuel efficiency. Symptoms include a creaking or screeching noise as you pass road imperfections, plus wobble, skip and “dead zones” in steering. Don’t overlook these signs, as broken stabilizer links can lead to loss of control.
