Hello Fusion friends, Brian from Steeda and today we're going to talk about the Rear Way Bar for 2013 to 2020 Fusions as well as the 17 to 19 Fusion Sport.   We love the Fusion and the Fusion Sport. Phenomenal touring cars, sporting sedans whatever it is you want to call them and we know that there's so many fans out there of the vehicle and in here into any front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle is understeer. Understeer is when the front of the car wants to push out. Think of driving on ice and snow for those of you in the south, think of it driving through the rain too quick, you turn the steering wheel and the car pushes out. Think of it as washing out if you will, it's under steering and even though you turn the steering wheel more it doesn't help it just keeps wanting to push and this is really noticeable on sharp corners as well as autocross courses. Let's hope that you're on a closed course or even better track days and row course circuits. So to relieve that or alleviate that issue you ultimately can go to the larger  rear sway bar. So I'm sure you're asking yourself why did Ford put such a tiny Rear Sway Bar on the car. The reality is that so many enthusiasts out there well let me back up a little bit so many customers out there buying these cars really like the sporting aspect of it but don't necessarily feel like pushing it. We know that you our customers think differently and this is why we're here talking about it.      The Steeda Rear Sway Bar for the Ford Fusion is 25 millimeters or one inch solid steel. This thing is heavy so you'll probably want a second hand helping you when you go to put this thing up under the car. So let's talk about this a little bit more. Why is having a large rear sway bar especially a stiffer sway bar so important. This is a great time for you to tell us if you've done this already exactly why. Those of you watching this for the first time or that are interested in this, don't peek at the comments just yet, save it a little bit later and I will encourage you if you like this video to click like and share with other enthusiasts.      All right back on topic. The Rear Sway Bar helps reduce roll. The whole point here is as the car is going through a corner it rolls onto the outside springs, the springs compress and that's what creates what we call body roll. Now a little bit of compliance and a little bit of roll is good because that's what's going to absorb any bumps and changes in the surface of the road. You don't want the thing to be overly stiff and harsh because after all it is a car that you want to enjoy on road trips driving to and from the circuit you're getting the idea here, dual purpose car if you will and the beauty behind sway bars is they only work when the car is in roll. When it's leaning on one side or the other. So when you're driving down the highway, commuting to work, whatever it might be you won't even notice that you've put a larger stiffer Rear Sway Bar on but when you get to the corners, Oh Man! You will notice a huge improvement and a huge difference in the balance of the car. So let's talk about that a little bit more.   Just like the Front Sway Bar the Rear Sway Bar connects to both points on the back of the suspension. The way it's connected is through End Links so you'll see that we offer of course Adjustable End Links or you can reuse the factory end links but those end links then connect to your suspension and as one side of the suspension compresses it actually will pull up on the other side so effectively as this side compresses, it's trying to pull up against this spring that inherently adds spring tension or load to this side and that's what helps reduce body roll. That's why you sometimes hear Sway Bars termed as Anti-Roll Bars or Stabilizer Bars or again Dario's favorite, Stay Bars.   The improvement to the balance of the car is going to be very noticeable you'll be able to manipulate the handling and the bias between oversteer and understeer by simply using the throttle and we do encourage you to be careful when you first install this. Not that it's going to be dangerous but if you lift out of the throttle completely it's not uncommon to actually have to catch the back of the car a little bit. Almost like a rear wheel drive car and it's something that sometimes is difficult to do in a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle because of that tendency to push, well this is why we talk about the importance of this Rear Sway Bar. Keep in mind that with that anti-roll aspect in the back of the car you're going to keep a better contact patch on the outside rear tire because it's not going to camber in as far because you've effectively increased the spring rate. The other thing to keep in mind is roll coupling. This is the relationship from the rear of the car to the front of the car and you don't want to necessarily overload that outside front tire. So in higher speed corners the Front Sway Bar may be applicable to you, if you're going to a really fast local road course you may want to consider pairing this with that Front Sway Bar. For our guys that are auto crossing and canyon carving through sharper corners, lower speeds we'll probably just start with the rear bar and again if you need to dial out some of the over steer because of the tire and wheel setup that you're running whatever it might be, then maybe add that front bar as well.   The Steeda Rear Sway Bar is a direct bolt on for 2013 through 2020 Fusions that are front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive as well as the 2017 through 2019 Fusion Sport. As noted a moment ago the Steeda Fusion Rear Sway Bar is constructed of solid steel and to maintain that strength all the way through we've also added in billet steel ends that are welded 360 degrees around that tube to ensure well strength and that's such a critical point because that's where the end link pickups are that go to your suspension as we talked about, as far as reducing roll you get the idea you know we're going with this. We back this with our lifetime warranty as well and we probably manufacture this in the USA at our Valdosta Georgia facility.   We provide all of the pieces needed for installation including the Rear Sway Bar brackets and high performance bushings. These will give you again better responsiveness out of the back of the car because while they don't deflect like a normal rubber bushing would.    If you're looking for a great way to add some fun to your Fusion whether it's driving it every day to work or to the local race track, the Rear Sway Bar is it!

Handles Better
Although I have a 2017 Fusion Sport, the handling wasn't really too "sporty". But after having the it lowered and adding the Steeda rear sway bar, it's a totally different car now, especially in corners. Now I have to add the other supporting suspension parts to make it even better!

Steeda...still the best.
Honestly, how does anyone have a problem with Steeda? If the parts don't fit/work/ are faulty... whatever. Their customer service is epic. Anyway, make sure you know what you are doing if you get the adjustable end links. The wrong adjustments make for a crap ride. If you don't know what you're doing, find an installer that does, or at least do some research. I watched YouTube and it took me about an hour and couldn't be happier.

WooHoo Free Stickers, Thanks John M. Rear sway bar best upgrade on my 2019 AWD Fusion. I added jack rails when I installed sway bar. Really tightens up the handling. Car also has strut tower brace, all pieces combined really improved the handling on my car, more fun to drive. Installation pretty straightforward with basic hand tools.

2017 Ford Fusion Sport
Very happy with the rear sway bar. Handling in the corners is noticeably improved.Recommend giving it a good scuff on the primer coat and giving a few coats of permanent paint before installing.

Stay Grouned
I have to echo reviews posted here previously, the Steeda rear sway bar is one of the best items that can be fitted to your Fusion. This affordable component matched with the Steeda strut tower brace ( mine painted Ford racing blue w/ clear-coat ) should be stock. It can be installed by mid level skilled owners just make sure you use all the grease Steeda supplies as the bushing material as part of the clamp is a firmer material. I've since gone back after 500 miles and greased them both w/ synthetic grease, kudos Steeda for fitting zerk fittings ! End game that these two parts absolutely make my '19 SE w/ sport package stay flatter in turns, allow a more confident drive in just day to day use, i.e. off ramps, all intersection turns, evasive maneuvers and yes even your driveway, ride suffers a negligible amount. On a budget ? This item, strut tower brace and cold air intake make an enjoyable car even better.

2016 Ford Fusion Titanium
Installed this shortly after installing the strut tower brace and it really helped dial in the rear half of the car. The roll was significantly reduced and now taking on/off ramps is not as much of a concern at higher speeds. Installation was not difficult and the fit and finish was as always perfect! This sway bar is much thicker and stronger than the stock, you can easily see the difference and vast improvement. Well worth it Steeda has yet to disappoint me! Hope I can convince my other half to let me mod more!

Great product
The rear sway bar is made very well, and installed perfectly and easily. Rear end is a lot more planted and removes the OEM understeer bias of the car from factory. 4 stars for the instructions being incorrect again. Tool/bolt sizes are all wrong from the listed instructions. Based on reviews from 2 years ago, Steeda was notified of this and they still have not corrected. Lazy!

9-17-2018 Past weekend install on my 2016 Ford Fusion the Steeda Rear Sway. It took me less than 3 hours,, mostly due to reposition the Jack Stands. Otherwise it went smoothly. The installation directions need to be updated, the 13mm is for the brackets and a 18mm is to remove the End Link Nuts, you will need the Allen Bit the stop the End Link from rotating. I have a Strut Tower bar installed. The rear sway bar is just sooo much better than the factory bar. Car handling has alot less roll and feels tight as one goes into curves. Nice. BTW all bolts and nuts have thread locker on them and use thread locker for assembly.

Fusion Titanium is fun to drive again
Last year I got a tune, not from Steeda so Ill leave that name out and now it time to start with suspension. This was a very quick install. I honestly think It took me longer to get my tools out then it did to install this. I bought the strut tower bar with the rear sway bar, they work together to improve turn in, cornering and when coming off the exit ramp to the acceleration zone the car is more stable. Plain in simple, driving my fusion is fun again. Thanks

Sway bar upgrade
Installed the Steeda sway bar upgrade into my 2017 Fusion Sport. Fit and finish is outstanding . Top quality bushings and retainers. The car just comes alive in the twisties. Worth every penny of the investment. Understeer is gone! ride comfort is not lost, but it is a bit firmer. Sport mode enhances the handling even more. Great product ! Thanks Steeda, for another great product!

Body roll is GREATLY reduced
Now have added my rear swaybar.... A handful of bolts later.... Body roll is GREATLY reduced. Corner exiting strategy is easier and more predictable. Even with my winter tires on the car. I really look forward to a week or two from now when I put on my high performance summer tires. I truly believe that when I put on my Steeda lowering springs, my car will have been truly transformed. Thanks again to Jigar Patel and Steeda for getting my order quickly and accurately out to me. No hassles, great experience!

Magnificent modification
I just finished installing the Sway bar and Strut Tower Brace on my 2016 Titanium, what a magnificent modification/addition. Not quite like my 2013 Focus ST was for handling but, It is as close to a European touring car as a person can make the Fusion chassis. I sent Chad a few notes of changes to the install procedures and tool sizes that could be included and Steeda was very receptive. Now on to the springs and drive train. Thanks again to Steeda, I have used your performance parts all the way from my 1999 SVT Contour, 2013 Focus ST, and now My Titanium. Now I just have to talk the wife into letting me play around with her 2013 Titanium Hybrid. ;- )

Must have
In my opinion this product is a must have for any Fusion owner seeking better cornering performance. A quality product that does what it says, made in the US, you can't find a better bang for the buck. Looking forward to adding more from Steeda thanks!

A must have piece!
A must have piece! This bar is built well, looks great, and performs even better! This was installed on a 2013 Lincoln MKZ and made a huge difference in the body roll issues. Here are some Pro's (no Con's): * did not stiffen the ride for daily drivers * did not increase road noise (NVH) * greatly improved body roll * gave vehicle a much more stable feel when cornering.

Faster turn-in, less body roll & understeer
The title says it all. I installed the strut tower brace a week earlier and that did a great job improving handling, but there was still body roll on hard turns. This sway bar eliminated that altogether. Performance is impressive now. The only downside (which is minor) is that on a really bumpy road the car now feels a little jittery because of the stiffer suspension, where before it would have just absorbed it and rolled back and forth a bit. Out of the two I like it much better now.

Money well spent
A few days ago I installed the Steeda strut tower brace and larger rear sway bar; I can not speak as to how the two items perform individually, but as a pair, I can attest to the fact that the improvement is amazing. I took my girlfriend on a winding road this morning that we took just last week and she stated that she felt much more confident this time, even though I made sure that we where taking the curves at the same speed as before. I felt the my FFH was a great handling car as it came from the factory with the 18 wheels and the LS2 tires, but now it is better than I could have ever hoped for, I just love it. I have tried to determine if the ride is any harsher on different road surfaces, but after much testing, I just can't say for sure one way or another, so I guess that I am saying that the answer is no to that. I installed the strut tower brace myself in about 5 minutes, but since there was now central location to jack up the rear of the car as a whole, I took it to a local garage and we installed the rear sway bar together on the rack; I would not recommend trying to install the sway bar by yourself on the ground, it would be very frustrating, but doable. Money well spent in my opinion.
