I also did my front end links this weekend. i went with the Deeza links. I had read on other forums (via google) that they are using a unique, patented design for the ball joint. I also like the idea of the "bent" link rather than the straight link. I would think that this design would put less stress on the ball joint...but I am by no means an engineer!
I will give them a shot, they seem very well built upon inspection. We shall see.
I ordered two at Amazon, Deeza # FO-L643 .... price was good enough that I'll give them a try!
Funny, my '92 Sport with 140+K miles has originals that are still tight enough that they don't rattle, but my '95 with 70K miles has a constantly rattling left front link? I'll put these on the '95 and save the tighter right one as a spare.
The two Deeza # FO-L643
links I ordered from Amazon came yesterday finally and I installed them tonigt after it cooled off. They are exactly as appear in the pic above, when I ordered them they had two left at $10.31
each and qualified for free shipping on orders over $25. I got a case for my Casio Ravine too. They went to $22.75 as soon as I completed my order .... guess I got lucky with old stock? I'm happy, no clunk in the '95 now!
Only down side is mine did NOT
have flats for a wrech nor did they have socket tip ball studs (maybe these are "pre-socket tip" versions?
). The nuts provided were flanged steel self lock nuts and I could not get the nuts to tighten, so I slipped the original nuts that came off the car onto the new studs and the thread was perfect.
I tightened them good, and gave thought to maybe removing them and reinstalling the self locking nuts ..... but as tight as they were though what a chore they be to remove maybe later if need be ..... so I just left the original nuts in place.
Did remove a bolt and swing the brake caliper up when inserting the upper stud too. Just lightly compress pads, swing up, drop old out and slip new in.
