Rear Sway Bar End Link Question

So recently I replaced my sway bar bushing to see if I could solve a squeak. That didnt work, so I found a video with the same sound as mine and he found out it was the end links on the sway bar. I was gonna try to use penetrating oil to see if I can narrow it down, Ill do that this afternoon. The question I have for you guys is on the fordparts website the part is $35+ for 1 end link. On american muscle they have one that looks the exact same but its for 2005-2010 I was wondering if there is a size difference. They are only $15 for 1 so half the price of fordparts. I hear something about 22mm and 24mm. Someone please help me clarify. I have the 2013 v6 base.

The chassis is the same between the 05-10 cars and ours, but the sway bar diameter is different, that's what the 22mm and 24mm represent.

Also the PP cars have a larger diameter rear sway bar.

Why not go aftermarket? The Ford links are under engineered and will squeak again. Took me some trial and error, but found that the Steeda end links with a layer of Teflon sheet between the bar and the bushing has worked quite well.

You could also try a liberal application on silicone grease.

Here are the Steeda parts: Steeda 2005-14 Mustang Rear Endlinks - Made in the USA 555-1060 | Free Shipping!. During assembly, use a liberal application of Energy Suspension lube at a minimum. I also got some 5-mil Teflon sheet from McMaster-Carr, cut two strips (each 2" wide by about 6" long), and wrapped each strip around the bar before installing the bushing and link. That way, even if the lube dries up, there's still the Teflon to keep things moving smoothly without squeaking.

It'll be hard to make things quiet for more than a day or two without full disassembly.

Rear Sway Bar End Link Question

I replaced my rear sway bar with an aftermarket Frpp bar, and it actually squeaks and clunks worse than the stock. I'm going to buy whiteline because I have one up front and it's really quiet and decreased body roll

I think Steeda periodically has discounts so it's less of a wallet hit.

For around that price, you can get a whiteline heavyduty sway bar with superior bushings and links/hardware included. I am switching from FRPP to a Whiteline setup because of their quality products
