did a lot of work on the car today.
put a wheel bearing, a caliper, rotors and pads on and then this little bastard.

this little link right here makes a huge difference in the front end.



man it sucks working with no garage though. it rained till about 6am so i was out there on the ground laying in water and #.

check those links folks.

That would be a sway bar link. What’d you let the pads go down too far and chew up the rotor?

you want my financial information too?
i wasnt able to do it right now.

just wanted to tell others that may not know about stabe link.
i dont want this to turn into a pissing contest. i know what stabe links are.

i guess neither of us are wrong if i go by that pic.

we always refer to them as the sway bar and the stabilizer link.
when i ordered the part i ordered it as a stabilizer link

Never in my life have I heard of a stabe- maybe that's slang?

That's a sway bar end link. It connects to the sway bar, which is spring steel. When you corner, the top heavy car will tend to lean- that end link will push up on your sway bar, which will in turn pull up on the one on the other side, keeping the tilt down and greatly improving traction.

fantastic.
what is your problem?

you knew exactly what i was talking about.
if you call a parts store right now and order a stabilizer link they will get you that part. i suppose if you order a sway bar link you will get the same part.

ive worked in the shop. always was referred to as a stabilizer.

thanks for being awesome

Who exactly is in a pissing contest? I wasn’t even raggng on you I was just saying the proper name I’ve always known you may have some different lingo but that doesn’t change the accepted name... This was merely to clear up confusion.

all you said was basically thats not what it is called and then asked about the rotor.

just seems like youre nit picking and kind of being a dick.

Either that or you got pissy off the hop because I dared to try to 2nd guess you.

ETA Whatever you say man I think the stars will show through on this one, and maybe next time don’t get so defensive all you had to say was oh I’ve never hear it referee to as that but I suppose it makes as much sense as my way...

Dude, chill... Not everyone will know exactly what you're talking about. If I didn't have the experience with cars that I do, I wouldn't know what that part is- and I punched "stabe" into Google, it didn't either.
Just wanted to share in case it would help. nobody else had replied when I started typing.

Ummm...sorry man...but Big Dave is right...that's a sway bar link...the anti-sway bar is a horizontal bar and the link is vertical...

You have a broken sway bar link...or anti-sway bar link if you want to be precise...

This man is correct, mechanic (among other things) for many years.

What you are looking at is a stabilizer link. The other item is a control arm.

i get it.

im still telling all of you that if you go and search stabilizer link on any parts website you will get that part.

so i guess it is officially a sway bar link.
search stabilizer link and you get the same result.

www.rockauto.com...

www.google.com...

shop.advanceautoparts.com...

strange when i ordered the part i ordered the stabilizer link and got the exact right part.

i really didnt expect a debate about terminology.

maybe its where youre from. when i search the net i search stabilizer link and i get what i am talking about.

we also call tow motors, well. tow motors.
there was a thread not too long ago where people said they had never heard it called a tow motor. always heard it a a lift truck. more than one person too.

apparently # can have more than one name.

when you call to buy a strut do you ask for a strut r a mcphearson strut?

this is stupid.

gonna have to stop debating this now.
