That's the one. I just bought some moog brand insulators from advance auto. They may have what you need in stock and cheaper. I'm installing exhaust today and also swapping to fe5 front bar and adding ZZP rear bar. Should be an interesting day.

If you're lowered more than 2" it will fit. It will fit either way but might occasionnaly hit.

The difference in the end link size has to do with the swaybar. The fe5 bar is about 2" taller where the end links connect. Thus, a shorter link is needed. Theres a pretty big difference in length between the fe1 and fe5 links. Im not sure if they use a different length link for fe3 or if they use an fe1 or fe5 link.

I've got my fe1 bar out. I'm trying to wiggle in the fe5. The added height of the new bar is making it harder to get it in. The repair manual says to mark and remove the steering shaft and rear engine mount for removal and replacement. I removed the rear mount but I was hoping I wouldn't have to mess with the steering shaft.

Old exhaust is out now too. I've got to get this bar in before I move on to the new DP and cat back.

Got everything installed. That front bar was a PITA.

Now the only thing I have left to install is the O2 sensor. My old one is stuck in my old downpipe. Got some PB blaster on it for the night. If that doesn't work, I'll put a little heat to the surrounding pip and see if that'll do it.

I can't wait to hear her run!
