      Yeah but I would have to cut it out either way to install the new one?

      How did you adjust it? Did you just go for the shortest length of the endlink?

      yea you can just spin them up or down and i put them on and then spun them all the way down and you can see them pull the sway bar up off the lower control arm.

      i can't speak to the ksports as i have never ran them.

      i ran powergrids given their years of experience modifying just about every front and rear link setup out there, and that all the track and auto-x guys on the mkv platform run them (or fab their own).

      this may cause debate but I'm going to post my thoughts anyways.

      this thread is for FSB on air. for that reason, people are going with shorter end links to compliment the air ride ( I assume to avoid contact when airing out?) So does it matter which endlonks to go with? I know there are quality concerns but, is there any real benefits of going from ksport or powergrid?

      Also, since setting up endlinks requires almost zero stress to the bar does setting it at the shortest length effect our FSB capabilities at driving/raised heights?

      No sir, but we've been talking to Dorbritz about making some for the BagYard line.

      Shoot me an email, we need to catch up!

      Is the bagyard strut design similar to the mason tech?

      It is noticable if you're doing any spirited driving and taking corners at a decent speed.

      Andrew, you should have an email from me on this very matter, haha.

      The strut body will be similar, internals are different. I believe the mason-techs were built with bilstein struts. The outside diameter of the body is what differs between the bagyards and airlifts becuase they use different strut bodies. If you have a caliper handy, take a measurement and I'll check my bagyards for comparison.

      To anyone running Ksports endlinks with Airlift XL's - can you lay frame with this setup?
      Or do you have to get Powergrids to lay frame with the swaybar in?

      Where do you exactly put the dorbitz brackets? I mean i know it slides onto the struts...but im wondering the exact spot you guys put it in? How far is it from the lower part that holds the air bag itself...2-3 inches?

      Thanks...
