If you just look underneath the rear bumper you should be able to see it. Here is a picture of mine. I know it looks pretty bad but it is coming off this weekend for my rear suspension job and I will fix it up

You might also want to try poly bushings. That is what I am planning on doing. I will let you know how it feels afterwards.

My Focus does have a rear sway bar. Are you changing the sway bars? The Eibach sway bar set I ordered comes with the poly bushings.

Thanks,
Moose

I'm not changing the sway bar. I am running low on funds for car parts and I'm just doing the more important things first and then extra fun stuff will have to wait until next summer. Since I had to get new end links for the sway bar the poly bushings were only like $10 more so I just decided to get them.

Freemind, how did it work out for you? Are you pretty satisfied with how you did it?

As for me I'm pretty content with my current handling so major changes from stock are unlikely.
