Replaces

2000-2009 Ford Focus Front Sway Bar Link Driver or Passenger Side

Part Details

  • Front / Rear Location: Front

This part replaces:

  • OE # 5S4Z5K484AA

  • New

Your sway bar helps your vehicle's suspension performance. The main purpose is to reduce body roll when going through a turn at speed. Although the sway bar itself is not a wearable item the end links are. Over time the ball joint ends can wear causing loose connections, or even come apart and fall off.

Specifications:

  • Fits either the LH (Driver Side) or RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Direct replacement
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 5S4Z5K484AA, 5S4Z 5K484 AA, YS4Z5K484AA, YS4Z 5K484 AA
  • Built to strict quality control standards

If you can hear your sway bar rattling on a bumpy road it may be time to replace the end links. This link makes a great replacement and offers good cost savings over the dealer part.
