If your talking about the front sway-bar, the end links are all the same, just different materal. BATinc,net has the stock ones for $19.95 and alloy ones for $29.50. And they also have all kinds of parts for Foci's

There are a few parts to an end link. The rod and then there is also bushings where they connect to frame and sway bar, etc.

Does anyone make the poly endlink bushings?

FFE to ST rear sway bar upgrade...

I'd like to upgrade the rear Stabilizer bar in my 2012 Focus Electric (DV6Z-5A772-A) to one from a '13 Focus ST (BV6Z-5A772-A). It is my understanding that the ST bar is fatter. The question is whether or not it will bolt in with the appropriate bushings.

How can I verify that the 2013 ST part will fit my 2012 FFE? I know I'll need to purchase the larger bushings as well.

I hope my only option is not to order the parts and return them if it doesn't fit.

The car handles reasonably well and is really fun in the mountains, but with 600 extra lbs of battery, a stiffer rear bar should allow carrying a little more speed through the corners.

Thanks!

Commented in your other thread/post on this.

If you used that whole Steeda kit any noises are prob. from the bar mounts.

All need to re-tighten those, and most find noises don't go entirely away without having the brackets welded to the cross bar after installation.

thanks sailor. i took it to midas today and told me i should sand blast the metal and repaint it and then they would weld the rear sway bar brackets to the sub frame.

what is your say on this?

also. i should do my front sway bar bushings soon. i bet they are tired from my driving style.. should i go energy suspension?
