Fix for worn out OEM
May 19, 2019  |  By David
MAXX link ends are a great upgrade for worn out OEM links. My '03 2WD 2500 was coming up on 180,000. I'm the 3rd owner so I have been doing overdue maintenance. While replacing the original shocks, I found that the original OEM links were worn out and one was actually broken. The lower ball was completely disconnected from the rod. The MAXX installed with little trouble and are clearly built stronger by not relying of a ball/cup encapsulated in a rubber bushing. The MAXX is build solid for years of use. Why install another OEM link end that will fail again when MAXX makes a great upgrade for a reasonable cost from Geno's?

'04 2500 link ends were worn out and one was actually broken. New Maxx units are build tough so they will last longer than OEM. Installed fine but it would have been nice if the top piece had 1/2" more threads to allow nut to be installed. Difficult to get the nut to start due to the uncompressed bushings. Once installed, the Maxx units are clearly the best link ends for the truck and will not have the detached cup/rubber issue like my OEM.
Owner Response:Thank you for bringing that to our attention, David. We forwarded your suggestion to the manufacturer, and they said they can make some changes to make it easier in the future. Thanks for your business and for your feedback!
