They do some good work there, or so I have heard. I have a guy who works at ford in the service department so I will talk to him and see what he has to say he will tell it to me straight. Then il determine what way to go from there.

They put a crap load of thread locker on those bolts. Use a torch lighter and burn it off. The bold should go right back in. The same thing happened to me.

Oh I know!! I actually just got it on this past weekend! I waited till it warmed up a bit and used some gun penetrating lube on it and then pb blastered it the next day and it came off so easy! and I am loving the sway bar going around a corner it has so much more confidence it hugs the road and makes me grin! I just put on a blox shift knob on too! my baby focus is growing up! haha
