felixthecat All they need to do is scuff up the cradle & tac weld the brackets & mock up the sway bar making sure they're in the right postion & as spread as far apart as possible. Afterwards undue the bar if setup right & weld the brackets to the cradle & then throw some black paint on the welds. Then install your bar.

sailor Doesn't make sense to repaint before welding, paint needs to be cleaned off to weld.

Paint it afterwards, at least the weld areas.

Those bushes would firm up the front, bit of a chore to install them. Check out what you've got now for condition first.

You'd need poly bushes all around in the back to equal that front change, better to keep the slop more even front to rear IMHO. One place it can flex at each end makes response even.

notfortheweak 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?

sailor 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.

Tundrafoci I'm going to go with yes, they will work. The steeda RSB keeps the same mounting locations as a stock bar

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.
