That's it! Enjoy your non-clunky endlinks

Both sides use the same procedure so I've only documented one side.

Nice write-up. Maybe you should add it to the wiki.

Great writeup! .... Unfortunately, my endlink wasn't as easy as your endlink was AdamB and I ended up sawzalling it off.

Sawzall FTW! My passenger's side one put up a bit of a fight...that was probably the longest part of the job on my car. I didn;t sawzall it off though, I had to get a helper to have enough hands to push down on the swaybar, pull the endlink out, and bash it with a hammer all at once

I'll add it to the wiki

Gen 1 and 2 are basically the same except that the nut holding the link to the strut faces out to the side of the car instead of to the front.
