Make your own with 1/2"x20 threaded rod available at Lowes or Home Depot. Install some 1/2x20 heim joints on the ends after you've cut the rod to the required length, mount & you're done. You only need to select appropriate nuts & bolts to mount the links & you're done. Most any hotrod store or website will have inexpensive 1/2x20 heim joints, you'll need four of them. This is how I made mine & it only took an hour once I got the rod & heims home.

My rear sway bar bottom end link bolt keeps ripping out. Will this custom rear swaybar end link setup with the helm joints help with this?

My rig: Stock rear swaybay, front anitock. 97 TJ with 5.5 LA lift and 1.25" body lift.

Your rear links are too short for that amount of suspension lift which is likely why they're getting damaged. Installing the correct length links should take care of the problem.
