Are Endlinks vital to replace when busted?

My endlinks are busted, I was jsut wondering how vital is it that I replace them. The car is not my daily driver so I don't drive it much, but when I do it is usually on the highway for a coupel hours or more. Am I at risk of seriously breaking something if I leave them be for the time being, ro should I go ahead and replace them.

Thanks,
Kevin M

Swaybar endlinks, right?

You'll experience a lot of body roll, and possible loss of control-not to mention the possibility of breaking other things-at highway speeds. You should replace them.

just remove the front swaybar if you are refering to the front endlinks.

Sounds like I will be replacing my endlinks now. I have already done the upper control arms, but what about the bushing that is at the bottom of the suspension, the one on my drivers side is slightly busted, can I buy just taht bushing or do I have to buy the entire lower arm. Also my grease fittings don't seem to hold grease very well, should I replace them as well and if so once again, can I buy them by themselves? Where is the best place to buy these parts, and what are the official names for the grease fitting joint and the other lower joint that has no grease fitting on it?

Thanks for your help,
Kevin M
