You might note that those are adjustable end links.
^^^That's why they're more expensive.

If you really want to be complete, don't the SPI cars have a 19mm or 20mm front bar?
I'm fairly certain there's at least one or two models that have smaller (<21mm) front bars.

Once a few corrections/additions are made, I'll be glad to "clean up" the thread for you.
^^^Meaning, get rid of the posts making corrections or additions, leaving only the pertinent information.

Just look what you got yourself into now!!

haha ya what did i do.

yes the SPI cars have an 18mm sway bar. however i cant find a set of bushings for the SPI FSB. the only ones i can find are the 21mm that are zetecs and SVTs. that is assuming you would have to use stock FSB bushings for the SPI.

Also, 2005+ S and SE models have a 18mm front sway (yuck!) Im pretty sure the spi has that too.
ok i will add the SPI and S and SE models thing right now.

also that is wayyyyyy to much work. the prothane stuff is very well priced and i think that its just as good. so idk if you would wanna do the work to get it from summit.

According to Energy suspensions site thier kit includes front control arm bushings, front swaybar bushings, rear swaybar bushings and endlinks, rear coilspring isolators, rear trailing arm bushings and rear bumpstops.
true...however i was going for specifically sway bar bushings which i could only find in the complete kit. but i will add the prothane kit to the top now that you mention it.
