WK Rear sway bar links...

When installing the srt rear sway bar on a non-srt wk, do I need to buy the srt links too? I read somewhere they weren't necessary, the non-srt ones should work. I can visually see they are different and need to replace the originals anyways due to wear so which ones should I get?

No the srt one are shorter. Just go with moog problem solver ones. I went Bwoody on my 09 never had any issues just keep them greased.

I would say that depends if you are lowering the suspension to match an SRT or not... If you are, then use the shorter SRT links, but if you are just changing to the stiffer bar and staying at normal height, then use the regular / longer links .

I'm going mopar on these, just matter of regular wk or srt ones. Keeping it OEM simple since there's no point in installing an aftermarket upgrade when I can upgrade other suspension parts too that won't be replaced for now, because the Bwoody suggestion.

If youíre going to install the SRT springs with the sway bar then you should use the SRT links .

Donít forget to get a good alignment after itís all done too
