What is the best way to reduce it as much as possible?
And where can I find these parts?

Thank you!

Here is a place to start getting more information. However, finding these parts will be the issue. Shosource still has sway bars and sub frame connectors listed on their site. You can look in the classified section, post a want to buy, or there is a Facebook Sho marketplace that others have found parts.

I haven't heard of that brand, maybe others have, 7/8 diameter comes out to 22.2 mm. It not the largest diameter that is available. Did you buy that 93 MTX you were looking at, if so the sway bar should be bigger than that

Thing is I come from a scion FRS ... So I don't know how close I can make the sho handling wise to it.

It won't handle like an FRS ever. Any good strut and spring combos are out of production, something stashed away or used will be the only option. The largest easily found factory sway bars are on the gen 1 SHO, 24 front, 26 rear.

No idea yet ...
It starts ... Then makes noise then dies ... Then I tried starting it and it won't start
does it turn over and just keep cranking, but not start
what kind of noise does it make (you can post an audio clip and link it here)

If you can pull the codes that could help. How long does it run before it shuts off.

The sway bars on the interceptors are thicker than the SHOs. I have a ex police sedan and the sway bar is unique to them.

I would try tasca, from what I read they made SHOs sway bars smaller so you can feel what car is doing, my ex cruiser has little to no body roll, can handle corners but does ***** me because of lack of feedback from car on how hard I'm taking a corner, unsure what else you would have to change to make police sway bars work.

That *****, but can confirm when driving my interceptor the Lack of body roll Is far superior to my SHO. Google it, many articles on why ford put smaller away bars on SHO.
