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!

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?

golfitup So if I run the 18mm front bar on an SVT, with Moog End Links, I would need to get some OEM sway bar bushings from Ford?

What about the end link bushings? After going to Moog, does anyone offer the bushings themselves that are on the endlinks at poly?

Thanks.

The need for longer bolts will depend on the bar and possibly the amount of drop you have. I have a stock rear bar and a 1.5 inch drop and do not need longer end link bolts. Stock bolts worked just fine. I believe the same will hold true with an SVT bar since its of identical design (just bigger in diameter). Many aftermarket bars have different designs (bends, etc) and attachment points which can dictate the size of the bolt needed.

So will these fix a stock endlink and change the mounts to urethane?
