they drop the bar down allowing earlier engagement

I couldn't wrap my head around it until I actually started the work and it all made sense. My old ones had the rubber damaged so I decided to go with aftermarket. I didn't need them for the coilovers. Make sense?

I snapped some pics and had planned on posting with some witty commentary but it's been a long day and Google assistant made this and I thought t looked nice

Here is my sway bar clearance, if anyone can speak to this being too close or not speak up. I think I may have to tighten the preload so I can lift the endlinks up a bit more. I think MBrice was correct about his assessment with needing shorter endlinks.

The endlinks were a pain, I've done a lot of suspension work so this wasn't difficult for me. The only thing was the learning curve on making adjustments on the coilover system. I had some issues with the ABS line bracket, it appears to be an afterthought or generic bracket. Took me some time to get it just right.
Get a helper! I did this alone, it sucked. I could have cut my time in half.
