While doing my first oil change since buying this car I noticed space between the rubber bumpers on both front sway bar links. I haven't noticed any rattles or noise but this can't be right, right? Grabbing the end of the thick bar I could wiggle it and get some rattle but I'm not sure if it's all from the loose ends or if the mount bushings are also worn & loose.
Is there a quality difference in replacement links? I've bought a set for a past car that was plated all shiny but had really crappy bolts & sleeves.
