Yep, I had a stock rear sway bar. Still a big difference with the new ones.

The 7709 kit was the one I ordered and it only came with the bar, the two rubber bushings, and the new D shaped brackets. The front is 7708 and it came the same way. I did see it other places online for quite a bit more money so who knows if there are other versions with end links...??

Interesting.. the kits I got didn't have them nor did the instructions say they should. Odd they would use the same part number for different kits. Oh well. Let us know what you get if you order them if you don't mind. I'm curious now.

s/w hellwig tech support, he told me he really wasn't sure what was in the box, how reassuring. then emailed john at addco. john told me addco is hoping to have a "complete" kit out in about 3 months.

That sucks you got the run around with it... sorry to hear.

So, does your truck not have a stock sway bar in the rear (and as such no end links) or were you after upgraded end links? Just curious if you had info that upgrading them over stock helps with handling.

I towed our ~4000lb trailer this weekend for the first time with both sway bars upgraded and it was a nice improvement. Granted it towed pretty well stock but it felt more stable and gave a better sense of control in the curvy mountain roads.

i did find that Moog makes an rear end link kit for 2009 & up (K750396) in their catalog but no luck finding a store that lists that Moog #. I wrote Moog for assistance.

Well, good luck with finding some end links. Man, if you don't have one at all now I'm sure you'll be really happy with the difference when you get one on there!!
