Any idea what size Steeda's clamps are? Going to the hardware store to save a few bucks on their "kit". Of course I could/should just get someone to weld.. Is it the flat piece that gets welded to the cradle?

Yes all it needs are a few tack or stitch welds on either side of the plate. If you don't have access to welder or a friend that can do it, muffler shops can usually do this the cheapest.

I have a question about Sway bar end links and bushings. My car is a 2006 Ford Focus ZX4 it does not appear to have either sway bar end links or bushings or the sway bar?

IS this something that FORD did make a car without these for this year as well. Seriously went under the car today thinking I was going to replace sway bar end links and bushings and wallah nothing there to replace. Or is this just my imagination? Because I dont even see a SWAY BAR under there. So No sway bar, no sway bar end links, no Bushings? Is this possible for a 2006 ford focus ZX4?

Anyone know if this is true or not? IM baffled at how the car does have one. Our other car a Saturn has a sway bar and the other stuff mentioned. Now looking at your pictures above I noticed that in each there is nothing special to remove the said parts can be seen clearly. One would think that an OEM part(s) would be clearly visible if they exist or not right? I dont see any Sway bar, sway bar end links or even Bushings anywhere this is before jacking up the car in the back off the ground.

Help anyone Im lost?

Think what you want but I have been very happy with my Steeda kit for the past 6 years. You need to get it welded though because otherwise it was creaking. I'm still ticked that it did not come with a swaybar in the first place.
