Rear sway bar

Hey guys just wondering if any of you have a rear sway bar on your trucks from the factory. If so, are they good sway bars?

My X came with the standard swaybar from Ford. On the X this is undersized. You can get the upgraded superduty from for for a reasonable price. I don't remember what I paid, but Tousley ford has it listed for about $100.00. I never towed with original swaybar, but researched where many found the upgraded swaybar was much better. I want to say the factor X swaybar is a 23 mm and the superduty one is 30 mm. Hope this helps.

The limited model (what I have) came with a sway bar. Many people have posted that is inferior to the super duty sway bar, however my local ford dealer lists it as the same part #. I know a few have measured theirs and found it was the same size (thickness).

Honestly, I think it has a lot to do with what year you have. Towards the end of the run (03.5 up) they had changed several things.

I have an 04 limited, and there was a significant difference in the one that came with the truck and the one I put on. I will take a look and see if the part number tag is still on it.

I'm assuming it will work on my 2wd as well? Figure I just keep the same dog legs I've got now and it should be fine.

Along the same line, has anyone upgraded to poly sway bar bushings? I did this on my Expedition because my rubber ones were messed up. It actually made a noticeable difference.
