Why is the rear sway bar in the kit a lower diameter (22 mm) than the stock GT (24 mm)?

FEENEY

  • The rear sway bar on a 2011-2014 GT is a 22 mm bar, not 24 mm.

Where to start with settings? Moving from the stock sway bars to the Ford Racing sway bars, where should I start as far as settings? Use will be daily driving as well as track (High Performance Driver's Ed).

  • In my opinion, if you don't already have any significant understeer or oversteer, then I would start in the middle setting for the front anti-sway bar. This is the most balanced, and will allow you to see if you need to adjust further either way. I set mine on the middle setting, and I have found no need to adjust it further. I say, set it on the middle notch, and drive it. Since you use it on a track, I would say to test it there. If you get more push or oversteer, then adjust it to compensate. Whatever setting you find that works on the track, should also work for daily driving.

    Handles Like a Totally Different Car

    I was expecting some handling improvement, but was blown away after installing this sway bar kit. Handling is much tighter compared to the stock bars. Best suspension mod I've done yet. Installation was easy and very fun and can be completed in an afternoon with basic tools. My only very minor issue with this kit is that it doesn't include new or upgraded front endlinks. My originals are toast at 47,000 miles and need replacing. Still, this kit is a must buy for anyone looking to improve their S197 Mustang's handling. Here are the torque specs from the Ford workshop manual needed for installation: Front sway bar bracket nuts : 52 ft-lbs Front endlink nuts : 85 ft-lbs Rear sway bar link upper nuts : 85 ft-lbs Rear sway bar lower bracket nuts : 52 ft-lbs

    Excellent Product

    I pulled the sway bar kit off my 06 GT and replaced it with this one as part of my new build. The difference is like night and day. The stock version in the front has one strut stabilizer bar location that can be bolted down. This version has three separate ports that you can choose dependent upon your driving conditions. The kit also contains updated bolts and fasteners that the stock kit doesn't have, making the kity easier to install and maintain. I like the new lubrication ports in the fasteners that came with this kit. The rear sway bar came with tungsten steel plates to lock in the bar below the rear shocks, instead of only the two bolts which comes with the stock kit. The suspension is much tighter with this kit and the ride is much more enjoyable. All of the bushings are bright red too so they look cool. I am very satisfied with this product and it was fun to install.

    Don't SWAY away from these bars

    This is a great upgrade to my 07 GT. Very happy with the added performance that these sway bars give. I have also added a shock tower brace and rear lower control arms. There is a tight S curve by the house that I try out all the time. With total stock components and tires I was able to complete the turns at 46 mph. Now with the sway bars, tower brace, control arms and Mickey Thompson tires I can now do the same turns at 57 before the rear starts to get loose. Lots of fun!

    No More Roll

    These sway bars work really well with the FRPP dampers and springs. Body roll is almost non-existent. Nice looking too.

    Completes my Ford Racing Handling Pack

    Previously I had installed part of the the ford racing handling pack (which lowered my car 1"): (2) Adjustable Struts (2) Strut Mounts (2) Adjustable Shocks (4) Springs (2) Front/Rear Jounce Bumpers I installed the sway bar kit and the adjustable panhard bar as part of this build, in order to complete what ford calls their handling pack. These added significant overall tightness and sway control beyond what my initial build noted above did for my mustang. I would compare the handling now (if not better) than to my '04 Honda S2000 which remains completely OEM stock. I think the biggest difference (besides blue) between the stock and these sway bars are the eurathane bushings and connecting rods, which seem 10x better than what was there. The weight seems relatively the same, with the new ones being a little thicker. I can tell you that the stock panhard par is a P.O.S (it's filled with some kind of sand, for what I'm not sure). Honestly beginning to end, the sway panhard bar took me 6 hours to install. With just jacking the car up in my garage with stands/wheels off, some of the angles that you have to get a large wrench in is difficult and takes some muscle. In some places it was not possible to fit a torque wrench in. I used Teflon grease per a recommendation of an online ford tech all around, when I asked about some torque specs. Suggust you download the ford instructions for the overall handling pack, they are more accurate on what you need to remove to get the front sways in place. Overall very happy with my purchase, makes me want to dive into ever corner I take (goodby tires :-). American muscle/ford racing rocks

    Phenomenal upgrade!

    These sway bars are absolutely FANTASTIC! They compliment the Ford Racing springs and struts perfectly! The handling has improved 10 fold since installation! These are a must for your suspension upgrades!

    Great Handling!

    This product will help you so much with handling! Body roll is nearly gone, and can accelerate hard leaving a corner. The bars are slightly bigger than the 11-14 Track pack/brembo sway bars. Also they are solid which is a big plus. One of the best if not the best sway bars out there

    Good upgrade

    Ford makes a high quality set of bars along with improved hardware. Noticeable improvement in reduced sway, greater road feel and car felt tighter overall. More squat when to punch it and car feels like it is on rails in the turns.

    Great Product!!

    This is an awesome kit. A couple of tips for an easy install if you have other aftermarket suspension parts. 1. The rear lower bushings won't work with a sway bar relocation kit unless you drill a new hole in the mounting plate. 2. If you have a BMR Panhard Bar Relocation Bracket or one like it, you will need to notch a small half circle into it to prevent it from hitting the sway bar. A small notch won't effect the strength because the location and the bracket is more than twice as thick as the original mounting point. 3.The instructions made no mention of the bracket that connects the K member to the radiator support on 2011+ models. I drilled four holes into the lower splash shield to allow access to the bolts that hold the bracket in place. This allowed me to remove the bracket without having to remove the front bumper. The kit is great and made an awesome improvement to the handling. Just be prepared for minor compatibility issue with other after market suspension parts but that is to be expected.
