Rear Sway Bar Install
 
I have an 05 ZX3 S which came without the rear sway bar. I will be receiving a rear SVT sway and all the hardware needed to mount it shortly. I searched on here but did not find what I was looking for.

Has anyone installed a rear sway on a car that previously was unequipped? Instructions? Suggestions?

I installed a rear sway bar on the focus and its pretty straight forward. Just go search and download a FSM if you need some instructions.

I also have a 2005 ZX3 S, which did not come with a rear sway bar. Steeda sells a kit that will allow you to bolt up their sway bar. I believe it's a 21mm bar as well.

Or, you could get the aluminum sway bar clamps that BiscuitNinja sells and use whatever rear bar you want. Make sure that the bar comes w/ the hardware to mount it though, otherwise you will have to get the endlink separately.

Personally, my setup is the BiscuitNinja aluminum clamps w/ the Saner/Auto-X ZTS 24mm adjustable rear swaybar. Total cost was around $250. Steeda's kit is about $150, but its not as beefy. Your choice.

BTW, this should be in the suspension section.

as nigle said you'll need brackets... if your S model does not have the sub-frame mounts you'll need the brackets that are custom made or the steeda kit... unfortunately things like this are not specific accross the board on the fofo.
