Looking to upgrade to Z06 swaybars. Anyone know if I need Z06 end links as well or can I use my C5 end links. Has anyone done this mod? Also, Hotchkis makes performance sway bars and I'm wondering if they are better than the Z06 ones. E-bay sells the Z06 sways for $189, end links for $75.

On your '99 your end links are plastic. I would recommend getting the aluminum links since they don't cost that much extra. The end links are the same design on all C-5s wether they are plastic or aluminum.

I have the Z06 bars on my '02 F45 car and there is a difference in the cornering without making the ride more stiff.

Thanks, but are the aluminum ones the end links that come on a Z06? And where would I get them?

The end links are all the same design just different material. Coupe, convertible, Z06. When the Z06 came out all C5s went to aluminum end links.
