Default GT F & R sway bars on V6...direct fit?

Hey guys,I just found a great deal on a pair of used '09 GT factory sway bars off a track pack car. Scored both the front and rear for under $80!

Anyway my sixer wasn't equipped with the rear sway bar from Ford so I was waiting for the right deal to come along to upgrade my front bar and add the rear. The pictures from the CL ad show the vertical links for the rear bar are included.

I'm going to add polyurethane bushings when I do the install but is there anything else I need?Am I missing something? Can I assume the u-clamps for the front will work or do I need GT ones?Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

I believe the GT front bar is bigger so you'll need the GT U-clamps as well if I'm right...
You'll be OK in the back.

Thanks Pascal!

I was wondering about that. Ok I'll pick up the u-clamps from Napa.

Btw love your ride man, especially the GT500 front clip. I'd love to do the roush one someday you know when I have $800 lying around!

The front u-clamps might be the same.
The rear u-clamps you can buy new for like $12 each. I used 7/16" grade 5 or grade 8 bolts for securing the u-brackets and the top links to the body.
