Moog Endlinks for LS

Hey all, I tried googling which endlinks to get for my LS XFE with FE5 shocks/struts. I believe its the 11.89" set for both sides? The K80252 set, correct? I am also going to add some springs by either Powell or Tein to complete the suspension, then order the ZZP rear sway bar and front sway bar going with the 08-10 SS/TC. It should handle a lot smoother correct?

Okay not enough to shorten the end-links so yes the K80252.

I would say wait until you get new springs. I read somewhere that the springs and struts are the determining factor of the sway bar links. If you buy springs that drop your car as low or lower than the FE5 strut and spring package does, then install the Moog K750012 Sway Bar Links, after you install the new springs, imo. It may be okay to go ahead and install the Moog K750012 Sway Bar Links, but I would hold off on installing them until you get the springs in, because I don't know if they will work first off with your setup and second, sometimes those links are hard to get off unless you got power tools.

I ordered the K8 ones instead and the lowering kit is Tein (1.3") S Techs. I do have power tools, im a tech at Ford I know the joy of struts and endlinks of removing and installing new

blu3 v1p3r has Tein lowering springs on his LS. Pretty sure he hates them. Ask him why.
