Gang,

I purchased some rallitek end links about 6 months ago, and finally am getting around to installing them.

After jacking the car up, and setting it on stands, I sprayed the bolts with WD-40 to loosen things up.

As I started to loosen the bolt i noticed that the entire assembly was spinning (the bolt and the housing that feeds into the endlink.

Any ideas on how to solve this issue?

thank you in advance as always!

There is a 5(?)mm hex key that goes in the stud the nut is attached to. You need a wrench or a pass through socket to access it.

The front endlinks are a bolt and nut. You need a wrench on both ends.

The rear end links are a ball joint type, and have a 5mm hex key to assist with tightening and removing.

Fixed! After doing some digging with the search function, I found out that I needed a 5 mm allen key with the 14mm wrench. done and done. New end links are installed and the car feels great.

Next up are rear end links, and bigger sway bars all around.
