    Anyone know what this is called? I've replaced them before on an older Explorer I had. Lost one today, but can't recall what it's called.
    Also, if ya know where I can order them online....

    Not sure if that is the proper name, but it is connected to the sway bar. Oh and by the way your front diff has a bad seal.

    this cold is rough on everything. The ABS light came on in my Trailblazer today. Either a sensor froze or ice in somewhere. The brakes worked fine and light went out after my car was back in garage.

    Had a trailblazer, until this past March. Loved that thing, except the fuel mileage

    Agreed. I like mine but the mileage does suck. I don't drive a lot of miles in it so not worth replacing.

    As Johney says, they're called "sway bar links". Pretty easy to replace, just had to do it to a Ford Ranger. Moog replacement part is under $10 on Amazon.

    Second the Moog part. I've always heard they're the best

    Don't overthink it they aren't that crucial a part really. Not that you are but most off-road guys disconnect them right from the get go for better articulation.

    Double negative which equates to could do it or had to do it.
