These red anodized, adjustable front sway bar end links are produced by Drake Muscle Cars, a division of Scott Drake, to be stronger and lighter than non-adjustable factory links. For street applications, these end links are as quiet as the factory units and will not add noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) like most rod end units. For competition use, Drake Muscle Car’s double adjustable center design allows for adjustability while the end link is still on your Mustang. This also retains proper sway bar geometry on lowered Mustangs and adjusts the sway bar pre-load for fine-tuning.
California Residents: Proposition 65 Warning
Unlike your factory sway bar end links, these Drake Muscle Car pieces are going to be fully adjustable, allowing you to really control the geometry of your front sway bar. These are gonna be direct replacements for the factory links and it'll work with many aftermarket bars along with all the stock bars on any 2015 through 2017 Mustang. They come in a red anodized finish with a billowed center and steel ends, going to be much stronger than your factory components.
For this installation, a lift or jack and jack stands, 3/8 ratchet, 18 mm socket, 19 mm socket, 16 mm wrench, 17 mm wrench, 18 mm wrench, 19 mm wrench and 11/16 wrench.
Installation of the front end links is pretty straightforward, you get the car up in the air and remove the front wheel. The top part is right here on the strut and the bottom part attaches to sway bar itself. What we're going to do first is remove these, we're going measure them and set up the new ones the same way these are and we'll explain the adjustments later.
Our factory sway bar has a nut on the backside, so you hold that with 17 mm wrench and then remove the nut from the front.
Going to remove the lower in the same fashion. Won't be able to get an impact under here, so you have to use two wrenched to remove it from the sway bar.
What we're going to do first is we're going to take our Drake Muscle Car, adjustable end links, we're going to make them the same length as a stock one and that's our starting point. The basic benefit of the adjustable is two-fold. One when you lower the car this will actually adjust how much preload is on the front bar and determine how tight the bar is itself. Also if you would go to coil overs these are a perfect way to quarter balance the car. Without these you wouldn't be able to do that but all this stuff has to be done with the car on the ground on a drive wall lift to get the alignment set up properly.
Now to be clear what I'm talking about quarter balancing the car, you do want to obviously do that with the sway bar disconnected. Once you have it dialed in, you'll need the adjustable end lengths to get the bar set properly once the car is quarter balanced.
Now Brendan is going to start adjusting these again, we're going to stay with the stock set up for now and adjust them later. Like I said what we're going to do here is get this adjusted equal with our stock one and then going to make sure both sides are adjusted to the same length. Once, you have it adjusted you can tighten down the lock nuts. Now you just want to get them hand tight off the car. Now once they're attached to the bar we can tighten them down.
Now we're ready to install our Drake Muscle car's end link. What we're basically going to do is just put it up into place just like the factory end link was and tighten down the supplied hardware.
Now that the sway bar is attached we're actually going to tighten up the lock nuts on the adjustable part. Once our links are tight you're going to repeat the process on the other side, re-install your wheels and tires and your installation's finished.
These Drake Muscle Car End Links obviously look a lot better than the stock ones and they can perform a lot better as well. A lot of this dialed into the geometry of our front bar. Like I said If you’re lowered on coil overs and dialing in your suspension, you definitely want something like this on the car. If you're going to do the front you want to do the rears at the same time, again for the adjustability factor of it. And guess what they'll be a video in the very near future. As far as the installation goes, it's pretty straight forward, should take you less than an hour, be back on the road in no time.
