That's the rear bar... 24mm w/ 2 adjustments... AutoAnything.com

It's one of the most expensive on the market even with the 15% I got off my first order.

Post a review once you get it installed, and list other suspension pieces as well?

Do we have stock front swaybars? I should go open the hood on my car someday. I'd love to get front and rear, but with the hatch I'd hate to lose cargo room.

You are thinking of STRUT bars which go on the strut towers.

Sway bars are a part of the suspension and are underneath the car. The Focus has both a front and rear sway.

I believe it also has a front strut bar in the engine compartment but it is not visible without removing parts.

Finally had the Cash and Time to get my F2 header installed and finish my custom Exhaust.

Had my local Muffler shop install the header for me with no Mods needed.(besides having to notch one cross member for clearance of the header which I pictured) Since I live in California I had them relocate the Cat so I hopefully still pass smog. Then I had them do a Full 2.5 inch Exhaust with a Magnoflow Muffler. Its still a Bit loud for my taste so the shop said they'd throw on a resonator behind the muffler to tone it down a bit more since I have a Custom Dual Exhaust setup from the Axle Back and would hate to cut that out.

Ill be posting a video with how it sounds soon. The Steeda Intake combined with this setup really wakes this car up.

Exhaust Setup:

Notch I made for the Flex pipe, so it wouldn't vibrate or bump under acceleration:

I hope it works out for you. Sniffer might be OK, but a sharp eyed tech might get you on the visual.

Got any relatives who live in the boonies? No smog check.....
