replacement rear sway bar endlinks

Does anyone know of any replacement ones that aren't the stock ones? Mine are old and tired from being lowered. I was looking at these http://focus.c-f-m.com/prothane20mmr...cusexcsvt.aspx in hopes that they may work. I have the stock ses sway bar btw. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe the OEM SES bar is 20mm. Maybe time for an upgrade, FRPP rear bar? ;)

I swapped out my rear subframe for one out of a 2010 with a 20mm bar. (My 06 se had no bar/mounts). I got a 20mm prothane set similar to the 19mm one linked above. Easy way is measure your bar with a set of calipers, so you don't order the wrong parts.
Edit: my bar actually had a ford sticker on it that said the size of the bar. Yours may still have the sticker on it? Just a thought.

The endlinks arent specific to the size of the rear sway bar. Any of the endlinks you posted to would work fine. If you are going to replace the bushings as well, your SES has a 20mm rear bar and the above linked endlinks would be the correct size
