I discovered that you get what you pay for... My links were bad and I replaced them with the cheapest ones I could get from NAPA. 1 month later, I had the same problem. Replaced them with the more expensive links and they've been fine since. The MOOG links SHOULD have been strong enough. I can't see that your sway bar would be bent. That's some pretty tough steel... Have you checked the 'D' bushings that mount the center of the sway bar to the frame?? If those are out of whack and allowing too much movement, you may prematurely wear the links. Just a thought. Maybe you just got a set of "Friday" links from MOOG...
