The rear sway bar is nice to have but if you already have one it won't be as major an improvement. Mine didn't come with one from the factory so the improvement was drastic. You can look underneath the rear to see if there is one bolted on already.

A tune you typically want to get after intake/exhaust so wait on that for awhile IMO


Thatís what I had figured, mine is an SE model so Iím assuming it didnít come with it from the factory. Do you own any of the fswerks exhausts?

I think only SES had them from the factory, unless someone added one before you had the car. You can go look under the rear of your car for something like the blue bar in this thread: https://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/...ll-w-pics.html (Might not be blue necessarily)

You will need to get the car or at least the rear off of the ground to install it so keep that in mind if you do get a sway bar. Having someone there to help made a big difference for me.

And no I don't have an FSWERKS exhaust but I've done a lot of homework and it will be the one I do get in the future. Welcome to TruBendz - Mandrel bends, Exhaust systems, Downpipes and Mufflers They sell a cat back for a little less, heard good things about them as well.
