95GTSpeedDemon is on a distinguished road
2012 psd 4x4 lifted suspension issues

Customer has a 2012 thats been lifted an unknown amount. Its atleast 4in. Wide tires with too shallow of wheel backspacing. The drag link and swaybar are in a bind. Its wearing out those parts, it appears the sway bar is bent also. It wonders all over the road.
So, i talked it over with him about rubber vs heim joint on the drag link body end. He wants rubber due to NVH.
Whats your preferance on brands?
Im looking into a larger od sway bar and relocation bracket or one designed with more bend for the lift & an adjustable drag link.

If your going rubber might as well just replace it with the factory rubbers. It wont make any difference.

Like Sparky said
I'd probably go with Moog problem solver, factory fit
