In the middle picture, the end of the link looks bad, but I suspect it’s just the angle the picture was taken?  🤔
 It looks really really bad!!

No you're right, the link has a twist on it at the joint, like the bushing has collapsed. 

IDK what kind of end it is, but it's not like a poly or regular pressed in bushing, it's recessed with a zirk and looks like it should twist like a heim.

I can't be sure tho until I remove it for further inspection.

Rear seat belt towers were removed when I got the Zuk.....so I've removed the rear seat since I doubt anyone is going to sit there.

The space left over is pretty small...only 40x30x20, so I'm going to fill the space with a couple of trunk organizers that I can lift in and out easily for parts and knickknacks.

Haha true 🙂

so I got to the bottom of the link end mystery.  The link that looked like the bushing had collapsed, is actually able to move like that.

The ends look like this from Ballistic Fab. So they should be rebuildable....just waiting on Trail Tough to get back to me for parts.

In the meantime I have 2 rear wheel bearings to do and build a new trans crossmember. 

Anyone know what these are called?
