i'm changing the end links on the front sway bar of my charger.
it's the factory 15/16" bar, and i'm not looking to carve corners or autocross. just basic street driving.
however, what can i expect to happen if the end links are 3/4-1" shorter or longer than stock ?
the reason for asking this question, is i have those end links on hand, and i don't know what application they are for.
as they will fit, i am wondering what affect they will have on the car, using the factory bar.
Thanks In Advance to those way smarter than me, that can guide me in this question. bow

You want the sway bar horizontal at ride height - the sway bar ends swing on an arc that moves away from the LCA with travel, so if you start with the end links on an angle, the angle only increases (at least in one direct, would get better in the other), which reduces sway bar effectiveness and in the most extreme cases can bind.

thanks for reminding me about the bar being level at ride height !
the car is up in the air right now, so i haven't changed out the end links.
thanks to you, i'm glad i didn't ! i can shorten the long links, so i will wait until the car is back on the ground to determine what length of end links i need.
thanks again sir, for rattling my old brain ! up bow
