01 spi=rear sway bar.....

I was shocked. These years owning it. I didnt even know, I had a rear sway bar. Theres so much body roll. You wouldnt even know it. A friend of mine pointed it out. Mine is a 2k1 LX. Eibach sway bars. Here, I come! Ive got the eibach dampers and springs on.

I was under the impression that all SPI's had no rear sway bars That is awesome if you've got'em.

I have a '00 SE and I have the rear cross member with the mounting holes needed to mount a rear sway bar.

XfocusX: what you need is the metal bracketry that holds the rear sway bar to the rear cross member, its a half moon shape and has holes on the top and bottom where you bolt it to the rear cross memeber under it goes the sway bar of course and also the bushings that go aroudn the bar, the snow men thingys as you call them are rear sway bar end links.

so really all you need if you have the bar, the busings, the endlinks, is just the metal half moon brackets to bot the bar on and the bolts them selves.

also FocusFury: there were a number of Limited Street Editon focus's that came out in '00 and '01 that has the same suspension as teh S2 zx3 which also had the rear sway bar. So KoRnGtL15 could have one of those cars with the S2 suspension and rear sway bar.
