Do you track or auto-x your car? If not... then you won't notice a difference not having adjustable links.

If you NEED links, then by all means go ahead and buy one adjustable.

If you are running stock sways then according the guys at TC Kline you don't need them.

You don't need them but if you want the car corner balanced you will need them.

Optimally you would run adjustable links to keep preload off the sway bar but it's not a big deal on the stock sways, I ran mine like that for years a little preload on the front sway isn't such a bad thing.

You need them. I just broke one after about 24,000 miles lowered. Bent all to hell and the ball is busted up. And I just drive my car around. No tracking. The preload is way too much once you lower the car.

My question is, how do I adjust the new one I'm about to buy?
