Sway Bar Bushings and End Links manufacturers question

5298 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Xrover
Does anyone have recommendations for an aftermarket brand that’s equal or better quality than the Genuine Land Rover Sway Bar Bushings and End Links?

I’ve seen a lot of these parts from Eurospare, Centric, Febest, Moog, Britpart, Mevotech, Lemfoerder. Etc..
The Genuine Land Rover branded are double or triple the price.

It’s for a 2008 RRS HSE. 4.4l petrol. (Non ACE)

Many parts on the rover I would only go with the factory part but the bushings and end links I’m on the fence about.

Any personal experiences or preferences?

So far I've had hit or miss with atlantic british, i replaced the front sway bushings and everything was perfect until i replaced the rear which seamed like from the same manufacturer and somehow the rear make this weird cracking sound all the time, i was told to wait to brake them in but after 500 miles of not easy driving and removing them to lube them up a bit they still make loud sounds, I've put an order in for original land rover bushings and hopefully that will do the trick, so far I've learned that the bushing should most definitely be OEM. As for the links i can't seem to figure out which from the website provided Rock Auto are for ACE, im leaning more towards delphi as i know they make parts for land rover in general but the discrption is unclear , any suggestions?
So I just wanna update really quickly, just got and installed the OEM ACE bushings and after driving for 3 weeks with the aftermarket ones which sounded really badly while on the car, just realized what was the issue. Definitely always go for OEM, could be I just got a bad quality aftermarket but it’s a pretty bad defect, first look they don’t look all that different but compared to original the difference is very noticeable.. I’m attaching the pictures so you can see what I’m talking about, size is wrong as well the inside i dont know what to call it, threading on OEM goes all the way across and aftermarket stops a 1/4 inch from the end on both sides and it’s just rubber
