    Anyone know of a part number for these, I got some Cusco Swaybars and when I removed the Drop link things I ended up wrecking them.

    And yes both front and back ones. They were so badly rusted that the nuts actually destroyed the thread while coming off... I had to even cut one off at it has totally seized and the inside hex had rounded.

    Would they be the same part as on a pre-facelift?

    CAPS tells me MB892981 for the front and MR131732 for the back for a PFL. There doesn't seem to be a listing for the left side (the diagrams only show the right side) - would it be the same part on both sides?

    I replaced my rear one on the weekend, they were difficult to take off but once I put some wd40 on them they both came straight off :)

    Thanks for that. They are a good price.

    I have RHDJapan and Camskill getting me prices atm.

    Camskill have Aftermarket front ones, they are O/E spec at half the price. Once they get the Rear Dimensions off me, they will try the same firm for rear ones too.

    RHDJapan are getting me a quote on Mitsubishi ones.

    Oh ET. wish I'd read that 20mins ago.

    Just ordered from Camskill.

    They have both front and back up on the site now.

    Oh well. Still 80 pounds and air freight is still less than half of what Mitsubishi wanted. And I prefer these links as the inside nut is a full size one. The factory ones are easy to slip off if you are not real careful, and then the spanner tends to rip through the Rubber seal. They are only 1/3 the width of a standard nut.

    I'll get the part numbers and the company details who make them so hopefully in future people needing this sort of product can order from here.

    No offence to any Dealers or spare parts workers on here. But whenever I ring dealer spare parts, it seems like they don't care and would rather twiddle their thumbs than help you out.

    Thanks Brett.

    I knew I should have waited a bit longer.

    Oh well.
