Boss Laguna Seca sway bars + V6

Hey guys new here. Mostly been lurking around. I was wondering if anyone knows if the Boss 302 or Laguna Seca sway bars will fit the V6's? I saw some for cheap. I ask for a good reason. I don't want to put real aftermarket parts as my dealer won't give me a clear explanation regarding warranty and aftermarket parts. And because I know the LS front sway is the biggest one any Mustang has ever had. Btw I have the performance package if anyone is wondering so would regular Boss sways do anything?

Any other suspension bits fit from those?

As to rear sway bars, the V6 uses a 22mm rear sway bar. The GT uses a 24mm sway bar, the Boss 302 uses a 25mm sway bar, and the Boss laguna sega used a 26mm sway bar.

Any will fit, as long as you get the end links with them, as you'll never get V6 rear sway bar end links of a 22mm to fit the others, unless you drill them out (not recommended).

Another possible issue would be how it would handle (V6) with a Boss rear sway bar. Without the Boss rear tires/rims, you might introduce a large amount of oversteer (loose), as you are going to increase the rear roll stiffness of the car if using that rear sway bar and your stock rims/tires. The boss runs a 255 front, and a 285 rear tire/rim setup.

If you're talking about the ones on Ebay for sale, I beat you to the rear sway bar! The front one is up for grabs though (I think).

Sway bars should not affect your warranty. I got the steeda ultimate front and rear on mine. I think they are both 35mm and are adjustable.

The dealer isn't being very clear and on their policy and to be honest I rather not risk it. I'm just looking for a way to kill some body roll. How about the front sway bar from the Boss?

Only way a dealer can void your warranty is if they can prove the part installed caused the failure. A swaybar wont hurt anything. Im not sure about the boss swaybar

Besides, its a Ford part! They'd not have a foot to stand on if you install a Ford part and have it affect the warranty.

However, the Boss sway bar 25MM for Boss; 26mm for Boss LS) may cause you some oversteer unless you do some other suspension mods; wider tires/rims for one. You won't be real happy with how your V6 handles with a boss sway bar (rear) and the stock rims and tires, especially on the street.

Bucko is right. Im running a 18x9 square set up getting ready to put 18x10 rears on. And it handles like a dream with the performance package suspension

Apologies for the thread resurrection.

If I wanted to put the GT sway bars in my V6, I would need the bushings and end links from the GT too, right?

Thanks for the help guys.
