Steeda Quality and Expertise
I just recently purchased this aftermarket Steeda 28.5mm rear swaybar for my 2010 Fusion 3.0L FWD SEL and just had it professionally installed (only took 30 mins). Just for comparisons sake, the OEM rear swaybar is only 14mm. So, when one reviewer compared the OEM to a toothpick, he wasn't kidding. The first thing I did was test drive the car with the new swaybar and could immediately tell the difference on turn-in in curves such as horseshoe off/on ramps on the highway. I had just installed the Steeda strut tower brace a week before and I think with the two parts working in unison, the performance upgrade is night and day - so much so that it inspires confidence on turns now when I was hesitant to push the car before the upgraded swaybar. It's wintertime now in the NorthEast, so I'm using my winter Bridgestone Blizzak wheel/tire set, but yet the vehicle still feels planted now. Before, the vehicle seemed to wallow on sharp turns and I blamed the soft tire compound. But now, even with the winter tires, it feels like an entirely different car. I can't wait for fall/summer to test the car with my summer wheel/tire set. This along with the strut tower brace are probably the best bang-for-your-buck handling upgrades you can buy for your Fusion with such unbelievable results. I've also purchased Steeda's CAI Power Pack with custom tune and upgraded my brakes on all four corners to Power Stop Z23 zinc plated crossed drilled/slotted rotors and carbon-fiber ceramic pads. I'm ecstatic with my Steeda purchases. Next purchase will be Steeda lowering springs next year. I've been a long-time Steeda fan and have purchased a whole list of parts from them for my pristine 2006 Kenne Bell Supercharged Mustang GT as well. So, I know their parts are reliable and worth buying. Great Job, Steeda!!!
