    ok i know this is what i get for buying used parts but i bought a six inch lift from some guy on here and he cut the sway bay end links off of the knuckles they look like this

    what do you think would be a good idea on removing these?

    the heat from welding it might mess it up in the threads. it could weld it all together then you would be screwed. but its worth a shot.

    not trying to be an ass but even though it is a procomp knuckle it accepts the stock swaybar and links... so it has to press in.

    well if your sure it threads in then i would suggest getting a nut and welding it on to whats left and then soak and try and turn out....

    ya that might be the best bet cus i would prolly mess up drilling it cus it is at a slant i think if i put a washer over it and weld that to it then weld the nut to the washer i would be good

    i've never used a washer.. just get a nut that is about the same size as what would thread on to the broke off piece.. lay it over whats left and put a good hot bead right in the center of the nut until it fills up... always worked for me...

    i was wondering if there are any aftermarket end links or a way to make the bolt on the end longer so i could just drill out the hole and put it all the way through and bolt it on
