Front Sway bar end links

Spent the last day installing TRD lowering springs along with Bilstein B8s front and rear. Just curious but has anyone had an issue with the sway bar end link studs and bolts? When I got to removing them they appeared as if I was working on a car that had been sitting for twenty years! All nuts and studs rusted to the point where I could't get them off. Ultimately I cut them out and odered new links and nuts from the dealer. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can minimize the corrosion on these parts? Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem, had to cut off my front passenger, and only just managed to get my driver side off. I replaced them with the Whitelines, but am looking for suggestions on preventing rust and corrosion too.

Anti-seize compound? Normally copper. Use the nickel stuff for stainless.
