I've read a lot of posts about it, im sorry if I missed it somewhere along the way. In order to check the front links, are you supposed to move it up and down, or rotate them? I can grab mine and rotate them more than just a bit.

Thank you.

I can actually twist them with just 2 fingers

its a steady thump while I drive. The rotors were cut about 12k ago and im sure I need brakes but I cant see a warp rotor being the only cause for the thumping, so I started looking around the forum and the swaybar links seem to pop up a lot on here.

No, if they're real loose, change 'em.
The only other suggestion, and you may have covered it (I didn't go back and look), while you have things apart, change the sway bar bushings. Easy change.

Mileage really isn't an indicator of needing change, it's road surface conditions that impact the most.
I agree with this- some on here change their front and rear endlinks at 20-50K....
I changed my front endlinks- at about 132,000.
the rears are still factory and no noise...
But I do live in Southern California...
the other guys live in pothole hell.

I'm in "pothole hell, ice ruts and frost heaves in winter, potholes in spring, paving repair bumps in summer.
I have 120,000 (give or that),; and I have changed the front twice and need new ones now, rears have been changed once and are ok.

Mileage is not the problem, it is road surface :yes:
