Interestingly, rear doesn't come with drop links, so if you need drop links too, you'll need Hellwig 7961.

To be honest tho, I'm curious if going with the Bwoody Drop links and Hellwig sway would be the best solution... Hmmmm...
Bwoody rear links and Roadmaster 1-1/8" rear bar(http://www.roadmasterinc.com/pdfinst/1129-135.pdf) for me.

Does anyone know where to get Upgraded or Heavy Duty front stabilizer/sway bar end links for 2012 Express 2wd, or at least one with poly bushings?

I have searched extensively and the only options seem to be direct oem replacements from moog and off brands? Sphon and maxxlinks make gorgeous ones for 2500's but not 1500's?

So far all I could come up with is to replace the oem upper link bushings by using sizing chart at energysuspension and the same for the oem front stabilizer bar bushings?

It seem to be a vertical ball or inline ball or swivel joint, doesn't look strong at all. Does anyone know if static mounting to the original location with oversized bushings and greaseable bar bushings would work? Many companies have hardened and oversized links without the swivel joint! All you engineers out there please help? There may be to much live action on the control arm for this to work and if so is the factory sway bar even effective? Has anyone taken there's off?
