Re: What does haveing a broken swaybar link affect??? (scottb15)

Predictable handling... and the posibility of having it wear / vibrate.
It's drivable with no problem, but it'll affect your race days to somewhat of a degree.

A buddy of mine bought a 92 Corrado SLC and found out it was somehow missing one of the sway bar links. Also, his CV boot on that side was ripped wide open. He replaced the boot, thinking he could do the sway bar link later. After going for a drive around the block, he found out his new CV boot was completely destroyed from the end of the actual sway bar.

this is where im at.
one side broke off, and rubbed the cvboot and i have a nice mess all over there,
and the other side i screwed up and forgot to tighten when i put in the poly a-arm bushings, and that fell off and started to rub the cv...luckily didnt wear through!

Can you link to the thread please? I searched and couldn't find it.
Are they adjustable in length, I need endlinks that are shorter than the stock ones, my autotech sway bar touches my brospeed header and I can't adjustable endlinks anywhere.

just ditch the front sway bar, you dont need it. pretty easy to remove.
then decide if you want to fix it.
