Description
Finally got the 21mm rear anti-sway bar and ENS end-links and bushings kit. Haven't driven it much yet, but there's definitely an improvement. Great upgrade for never having a rear sway bar!

Still getting good use out of the 12-years-old stainless steel single exhaust too. cool

Going from no bar to big bar is a dramatic change. I went from nothing to the 25mm Addco bar, and I felt the difference just backing the car out of the garage.

Be careful, suspension upgrades are addictive! laugh

I have the same 21mm rear bar on mine and I agree, it's an awesome upgrade! I didn't notice any adverse affects on the ride whatsoever.

Nice thing about suspension upgrades is they add up. New shocks, swaybar, or springs alone - pretty decent upgrade. But add all of them, plus some fat tires, now we're talking!

21mm rear swaybar FTW!
That + MM front swaybar = mercury

For anyone wondering, I got the 21mm bar, two brackets, two bolts, and two clip nuts from Tasca Ford for $65.71 WITH $10 shipping. The ENS kit was $31 at AutoZone with 10% off and tax.

Those are polyurethane bushings that came with the ENS 4-5171R kit and Ford brackets. I greased everything up nicely before installing and I'm hoping it'll stay squeak-free for awhile. I have my doubts, but all the other stock rubber bushings on my control arms creak anyway!

Thanks. Definitely better than nothing!

I've been very pleased with all my rear suspension upgrades.

Dumb question, I bought the EN 4.5171G bushing kit. The mounting bushings are 1 piece like the existing OEM bushings. I thought the replacement bushings would have a slit in them? How do I replace the mounting bushings?
