Default Installed sway bars/bushings on my 07 v6 convertible.

I installed my front and rear GT take off sway bars on my 2007 v6 convertible along with Prothane bushings. I didn't like how the white links looked on the rear bar so I painted them red to match my torch red mustang. What do you think?

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for their help. To clarify for all the other v6 convertible owners out there. The GT rear sway bar is a different thickness than the coupes. The vert bar is 18mm and the coupe is 20mm. If you decide to install polyurethane bushings like I did make sure you have a large bench vise. They are a PAIN to get in the links and it may take you some time but be patient, you'll get it... eventually.

Looks good, but most importantly.... how's do you like the handling difference?

Hmm, I was gonna replace my factory bushings (they creak when I have people in the back sometimes)... But they sound like PITA.

Anyway, congrats on the mods! They prolly fixed that body roll huh? =D

I love the handling. The front made a small difference but the rear was huge! I look forward to sharp turns now, lol.

Good, yeah I was surprised what a difference it made. Definitely a great bang-for-your-buck mod
