I have the fk8 front sway bar on my hatch and was looking to upgrade my end links.

In my opinion they don't fit well. I don't recommend. But just in case you were wondering...here you go.

What doesnt' fit well? Are you loading the car before you tightening the nuts?

The last two pictures you can see that its to sharply angled where it connects to the sway bar. Other then that it installed fine. Not sure how well its going to hold up long term being angled like that but I'm going to find out.

So the FK8 front swaybar fits on the regular civic ? You're using the stock end links or the FK8 end links ? There are adjustable end links available .Whiteline and others have them.

Does the FK7 sway bar go out that far too? It looks like the angle to the shock no matter what will look poor.

Yes, the fk8 front sway bar fits great on a normal civic. I have been using the stock fk7 endlinks with no problems for over 10,000 miles. I was just looking for some endlinks that had a bit more beef to them.

I know about the Whiteline endlinks. I have there rear sway bar with endlinks. I kind of don't like them and I was hoping I wouldn't have to buy from them again.

If you know how much Longer they need to be you can search online for end links from another car.I think moog list the length and size of thread.These are M10 afaik.
Hardrace list their adjustable end links for the fk7 and also Peugeot 206 207 208.
So they Will have the same length .
