Better rear end links?

Are there after-market rear end links which are better than stock? Indy shop says I'll need em soon, so thought I'd ask...thanks!

Bound to cover just a little more ground!

I'm referring to part number 6 in this diagram.

I dont know if there's anything wrong with the OEM parts, thats why I'm asking! (because for example, there *are* better sway bar brackets, thought there could be a similar situation with the stabilizer links)
