Hi. Hope I am describing this right. I noticed my right rear sway bar link head popped of from the connector rod.
I assume this must be replaced. Having the Armada springs probably didn’t help.

Two questions.
Replace both sides or just the broken side?
And second, OEM or Autozone ok?

It's a matter of preference, but if they are both original, I would replace both with a set of Moogs. Rockauto carries the.

And if you are disconnecting the end links, might as well do the bushings. If you do and you have a lot of miles (things are rusted), buy new hardware/bolts, etc.

Thank you.
Forget to mention. Autozone $20 each link with lifetime warranty. Whats the rockauto and OEM usual price for each.

IIRC, the Moogs were $17 each + shipping. Other brands were less expensive.

I am also running the Armada rear springs and have been having a problem with broken swaybar end links. I had broken my rear end links three times (passenger's twice, driver's once) in about 16 months (Note, I do go off-road a bit and flex the suspension.). About 6 months ago I replaced both sides with some from Detroit Axle and they have not yet broke.

Do you have part number and price?
Nissan OEm is around only $15 each. Not too bad but i want something to last.
Thanks

I found it at Detroit axles website. Only $44 for both rears. They are a short drive from my house. They also have some really cheap parts.
Thanks!

Just got the new sway bar bushings from Detroit axle installed. They appear better than the stock and were very cheap. Lets see how the hold with the Armada springs.
