I am buying my Progress RSB within a few weeks (have been busy taking advantage of the warm weather on weekends motorcycling =D) but their website states that it's designed for use with the stock endlinks. I'll probably be giving them a call to confirm. I'm going to guess that whether you need endlinks is, "it depends".
My personal thoughts are that the endlinks were designed for OEM spring rate and ride height, so they could be strained (tension) by a stiffer RSB; but at the same time, if you're not doing anything else with your suspension (lowering) that would cause binding or unnecessary additional strain, the benefit of adjustable links in particular can be dubious. The endlinks are fairly easy/cheap to replace so if you know you're not going to do anything else with your suspension and you're using the progress RSB on soft setting, forget about it unless your OEM ones are shredded already for whatever reason. If you know you're going to be doing other suspension modifications, then invest in them right off the bat.
