They retain the factory style ball joint on the ends so I would think no.

Ford Updated

Ford updated the factory design and you must buy 4 new nuts as well. UPR makes some nice ones but like the others you mentioned are not a ball joint style.

I read the change in thread pitch that necessitated the new nuts happened back in '09 or '10 so this shouldn't be too much of a concern.

Umi

The UMI Endlinks did not seem to make any additional noise. I was not sure when they updated the endlinks. I have a 06 so the old ones started making noise and I replaced them. I would say since you can adjust the Race style endlinks you could dial them in so they could meet your goals. The Teflon lining helps a little but as you stated Heim Joints can start sounding like a bush-hog out of balance the polite acronym is NVH.

This is an honest question, not a flame- I wonder what makes you say that the steeda ones are harsh as far as nvh.

I daily drive my '06 GT (120k miles) and when I upgraded to UPR's new adjustable swaybar endlinks with spherical ends, I didn't notice any difference in NVH whatsoever. And I'm pretty anal about my car. The only reason I installed them is because I've been chasing down a front end clunk on my car (turned out to be the factory LCAs) and I wanted to eliminate the factory swaybar endlinks as a variable.

Here's what I installed on my car:
2005-2013 Ford Mustang Sway Bar End Links - UPR Products

^^remember- Made in America, Lifetime Guarantee, and 10% off for AFM members.

i could totally be wrong man, but heim joints have caused added NVH in stangs for me in the past, so i am just going off of that. i have no issues going that route if they don't, but i just would hate to install them and then find out that they clunk, pop, or make an added noise/vibration. then i can't send them back. i'm safer with the alternate type.

I can't really comment on Steeda's end links. I haven't tried them. I do always run heim joints on my street/strip cars, so I'm familiar with the NVH you're talking about. But like I said, I honestly haven't noticed any increase in NVH on the UPR endlinks and they've been on my daily driver for almost two months.
