2010 Focus "S" with Steeda 21mm RSB. bolts right on.


if you can get the rear mount welded to the sub frame, mine tends to walk a little.

The RSB from Steeda is about 160 and looks like a good kit. I measured my front bar and got 21 mm which appears to be the same as the SVT front stock bar

Would you recommend front and rear sway bars? I am running stock suspension if that matters.

Also, could you tell me if this is worth the $$ http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...=1#post4104613

Again not really interested in Racing or anything like that but as stated before, I do some occasional spirited driving.

The front sway bar is not an upgrade on the 08-11. I measured mine and got 21mm

The strut tower bar sounds like a good deal. Guys say it makes the car feel better, mine is completely stock tough

Ya I didn't realize the first one I put up was OEM but I think I am going to go for the strut tower bar.

rear stabilizer bar

My '08 is a base model coupe. Yesterday I bought a rear bar from a first gen wagon for $17 at the local Pik-A-Part. It measures about 20mm, bigger than the sedan, and close to the Steeda bar for maybe a tenth of the cost. I'll have to fab the brackets.

20 mm. was std. for the rear bars, 21 mm. for the SVT.

So std. bushings would fit right for that one.

2008 rear stabilizer bar

The SE and SES sedan rear bar looked to be about 18mm, so I thought the wagon bar was a cheap upgrade.
