and likely create 'interesting' handling
(snap over or understeer as they are sooo stiff....)
Noltec makes endlinks for your car,
but based on your post, i dont think those are what you'd want.
seems to me you are best off getting new OE replacments...
OE endlinks are good, but yes, they can be a wear item.
They allow the sway bar to sway, thus eliminate harsh movements.
up to you but here... is the link anyway
Noltec Alloy endlinks here <---
hope this helps.

Mine have been absolutely silent. They use a ball socket, not a bushing. No squeaks out of them. I replaced the sway bar at the same time, but it initially was on the same 'setting' as the OEM bar. There was very little difference noted, just a hint better turn in. With the sway bar set to a stiffer setting now, it has reduced roll nicely.
Check that your sway bar isn't shifting side to side. Look for polished marks to the sides of the bushings which hold the sway bar. The Hairpin site talks of this, and what you can do. This 'shifting' of the sway bar can cause noise as well.
