Default What's it called?

Lookin for a front end part on my 06 1500 4WD. I would call it a sway bar link, but can't find it listed in on-line parts. I recently replaced the ball joints and tie-rod ends and this is the short link between the lower control arm and sway bar/torsion bar??

Thanks

Looks like it might be called a stabilizer bar link? Listed for $62. I can't imagine that part being that much, but maybe.

Yes, sway bar link. Don't skimp. The cheap ones WILL fail sooner than later. I replaced mine 3 times before I figured that out...

You are talking about the vertical link between the control arm and sway bar? With a ball joint on each end? I've always found ones at you pull and pay junk yards that look like the joints are in good shape. I can't stand to pay a lot for pieces like that.

Yes, those are the ones. Unfortunately, those type of yards don't exist around here anymore.
