I get so many rattles and noises in my car, I've just started turning the radio up more. At some point, I may break it all down and put some padding between panels.

So I peeked under my car.... There is no rear sway bar.... Kinda odd they didn't put any on at factory. My last one had a rear sway bar

Check for an SES at the junkyard they come with a 20mm stock, I currently have a larger bar and I bet their is not much of a difference between an aftermarket and the stock SES bar.

I believe most the S, SE did not come with one, and I believe if they did it was like 16mm's

It is 20mm MAC. Call Ford, crawl under your car and measure it. Do something. It is 21mm front, 20mm rear.

Interesting. I had not seen that before. Everything I had ever seen pointed to 18mm rear bar as the SVT is 21mm.

Seems silly for Ford to have used 3 marginally different rear sway bar sizes on 1 chassis over the course of 11 years...

I knew the rear was 20mm because I found that pic when I first bought my car, totally forgot I found it on here. I checked everywhere and could not come up with it again.
