Hellwig makes a set of adjustable links(very beffy) . They sell with there sway bar #7883 but not sure if they sell separately. It says for lifted trucks but they adjust down to stock length without issue.

I had the hellwig sway bar kit with the upgraded end links. They're really nice. Can accommodate a lifted truck but also fit on my stock ORP.

Core 4x4 I put these on my Limited about a month ago with a Hellwig sway bar.

EDIT--You may want to change the title of this thread to include "Front." I just saw your post about front end links... these are for the rear! I do not know about front end links.

I am going up 3-1/2" in the front, does anyone make sway bar links for the front, or they not necessary in the 5th gen trucks? The SuspensionMaxx, Tough Country links only show fitment for the old body style. Can anyone confirm that the Suspension Maxx SMX-1300L would work in the front?

After I lowered mine it got the Core 4x4 shorter end links as I wasn't sure about the Hellwig adjustables. I also installed Bilstein 4600 series in the rear, nice and planted now drives great

I went up 3 1/2" in the front and did not replace the front end links and have no issues. I am not aware of any aftermarket front end links as of now.

Bumping this, I lifted my truck with a 6” kit that re-uses the stock front end links and after 4500 miles the links in each side are both already torn on the top grease boots. Anyone know if the links from any of the aftermarket manufacturers can fit our DT model trucks 2021 in this case?

Front end links.. today was the 2nd time I've had my 5th gen in for this issue. 1st time was at 25k miles, now 2nd time was at 42k miles. Do these have a tendency to continually go bad.. The dealer said once they go bad due to the factory Rake... just was wondering how many more out there have this issue..
