I'm just about to change my sway bar drop links. 3 out of 4 parts are from one company and one of the rear is from a different company.

On any normal car I wouldn't even ask but it's a civic vti 1999 and it's meant to be good at going around corners fast. The parts do feel slightly different but I can't describe in what way but both companies(megaquip and blueprint) have a good reputation for aftermarket oe products.

Should I ensure both links on each side are from the same company or will it not really make any difference? I know one might wear before the other if some difference in quality but I'm not concerned about that, I'm asking more about handling.

It looks like the drop links on your car have ball-joints in them - I'd be more concerned if they were bushes, as you're more likely to get a variance in a bush (e.g. the hardness/stiffness of the rubber/poly) than you are in a balljoint.

Therefore I think it will be fine, though personally I'd want them the same on each axle, just for consistency!
