    Sway bar endlinks for an 02 Z28

    Alright guys, I just swapped out the stock shocks off of my dad's 02 Z28. While I was there I noticed that the endlinks need to be replaced. They are the still the stock one's and they are showing their age with the car having 90K miles on it. I will be doing both the front and rear. This is his daily driver so I am just looking for stock replacements. I am going to go with Moogs but I see there are a few available. I would like to be sure that I get the correct ones. I am also going to swap out the bushings for both front and rear with Moogs as well. Those I know which to go with.

    These are the endlinks that are listed. I need to know which is the correct stock replacement.
    It looks as though K5252 and K6217 are rubber and K6630 and K6678 are thermoplastic. It also appears that I can go with K6630 all around. I will probably upgrade to the thermoplastic style.

    Thanks for the help.

    I honestly bought the energy suspension kit from autozone. It was 21 dollars and the Moog is a few cheaper. I love the way I handled after the energy suspension kit

    Moog HD units are all you need..

    I've used them myself on everything for more than 15 years now.

    Including my 01 Camaro.

    Since we're discussing it, I have 1LE endlinks front and back (they were already on the car when I bought it, leading me to believe the sway bars are 1LE, also). Can I switch to a different endlink or should I stick with the 1LE stuff? Reason I ask is because back years ago, on another board and with a different Camaro, there was some heated discussion about how you couldn't use anything other than 1LE endlinks with 1LE sway bars.

    Jacked mine up a few weeks ago, my passenger endlink was GONE. Bought Moog HD's, not expensive and I've heard good things. Hell anything is better than literally nothing still scratching my head about that though ...

    How did you lose an endlink and how long was it until you noticed it was gone. It must have made some kind of noise I would think.

    I switched over to non street legal super sticky auto-x tires and broke ALL 4 of the stock endlinks on my 01 Camaro.

    Now it was a 3800 car, but the two cars have only minor differences in weight if any..

    A dressed 3800 weighs a few Lbs. off that of the LS1 engine.

    With that said,, I changed out to moog hd links as I had used their products (bar links and bushings),

    on many of my past vehicles, cars and trucks alike..

    Super simple to change out..
