All Stock GTs:

Wow, I'm glad I didn't buy GT swaybars for my '06 pony package. Very good to know.

You may want to measure yours to be sure. The build date on my 2006 Pony Package is October 2005.

32 MM sway bar - 2 Weeks Ago

I have a recently purchased, 2007 base Mustang convertible.
It has a 32 mm front sway bar, and no rear sway bar!

I am trying to get new mounting bushings for this bar, which is now, nearly impossible. I did find some old stock in Michigan, so that will have to do.
I am thinking of adding a rear sway bar, if I can get a good deal on one.
The car does corner quite well with the 32mm front bar.

I was going to upgrade the wheels, as I had to put new tires on the car. But, I couldn't justify the cost for now. I got 4 new Pirelli P4's for $328 installed at Sam's club. I wanted to go to 17" or 18" so that in the future, when I had to do front brakes, I would upgrade the rotors and mounting brackets to the GT brakes. Now, the brackets are really inexpensive, and the GT rotors are cheaper than V6 rotors!

Check your local pick-a-part or wrecking yard...you should be able to find a rear sway bar for a decent price. Cheaper than that?..Many people upgrade, so with a bit of patience, you may be able to find someone who has one laying around that they would give away.
The rear bar on a convertible is different from the one on a coupe as well (if you didn't already know).
I have a base '07, and added a GT rear bar. It makes a noticeable difference, not just in handling, but the ride is better as well. It really calms the rear end down on uneven pavement...car feels less jittery and more planted. Try to get the hardware and links with the bar.


no man with a good car needs to be justified...
