Question Are ZX3 and SVT sway bars the same?

I know the SVT rear sway bar is larger than the ZX3, but what about the front. I've heard they are the same, but need to hear it from the experts. What are the ZX3 and SVT sway bar sizes? Thanks.

Fronts are the same at 21mm. ZX3 rear is 20mm, SVT rear is 21mm.

According to the Ford Tech Data I'm reading, SVTF sways are 21mm at both ends.
Standard fOCUS is 20mm for both.

Is there any benefit to upgrade the ZX3 rear from 20mm to the SVT 21mm?

Yes, its a cheap and easy tweak to dial down some of the understeer.

SVT 21mm = ~$60
Progress 22mm = ~$120
