Someone will be able to answer that, from looking at whitelines site part numbers for sway bars are different between EA-ED to EF-EL. I'm not sure what the differences would be :?

Yes, but you'll need new D-mount bushes.
EL's use different completely different mounts.

Hard to explain.
The EA-EF mounts are just flat, and the bush goes around the mount on the edges.
EL mounts are a bit beefier, and have grooves that the bush locks into.
Standard bushes are no use to you either, 32mm bar won't even fit in them, not even remotely!
You'll probably have to chase up 32mm EL D bushes from Kmac, or someone else that does them.

I highly doubt it as Ford didn't make any swaybars larger than 28mm! The bushes need to have a 32mm ID (internal diameter), so you will need to get aftermarket Kmac ones, prolly better than rubber Fraud ones anyways!

Fair enough. But I would of thought we'd all prettty much be away of that fact already! ;-) If you wanna complete your list, Autobarn, Repco, Sparco, Bursons, etc. also sell swaybar bushes, but unlikely in that large size.

Whiteline would be no good either as the largest EF/EL bar they do is 30mm, so ID is 2mm to small.

TURBO_GHIA, if you have to pay $80.00 for new bushes, almost worth buying a new swaybar from whiteline that includes them.
