    Yeah, same. I am interested. Maybe Ortiz needs to order a bulk amount and sell them!

    Let me know what you need. I can take photos or measure stuff if you need. But if you look up the OEM part number for the SHO and XSport rear sway bars, they are the same, so I don't see why they wouldn't work.

    Not sure, I just looked up my year. The Sport version of the Explorer didn't come out until 2013. Not sure if it's backwards compatible.

    I just looked up a 2012 Taurus SHO and it has 2 part numbers for the rear stabilizer. One of them is the same one as the XSport and the other is a different number. Not sure what the differences are or what goes to what...interchangeable maybe?

    I probably will sooner or later. Got a couple of things going on right now, and a sway bar isn't one of them.

    I hear ya. I'm hoping they get back to me again pretty quick. I told them if they would just put it on the site and open the flood gates they would see the actual monetary interest and it would alleviate the fears they have of getting stuck with inventory. But we'll see.

    Speaking of, it’s been a couple weeks now, how has it been Lee? No problems up curbs or anything?

    I went down some extremely nasty roads a few days ago on the way to a "farmers to friends" free produce event just to test the suspension on some bad roads and it handled it really well. I live on a pretty steep hill where it has a 14* incline for 3 feet, flat for the 3' sidewalk then down at a 22* grade into my garage. I have to come in at an angle to not scrape, and haven't had any issues with it to date.

    Well they got back to me this afternoon and said they made a mistake in communication and all bars for the first batch are completed and packaged for shipment. He said they should be available mid October (assume they are being imported from Chino) so they are working out how they want to do the initial buy in. I'll hopefully have more information by the end of the week, but good to know we have forward progress.

    PM me for payment as needed, and you should have my shipping info from the battery tie down order.

    If not, will be glad to send again.

    Thanks for the surprise/update/good news.

    They will be the typical Whiteline silver coated, sorry no custom options available on these.

    Still waiting on the final decision if I'll be taking payment personally or if they will add to their site with a coupon code. That's pretty much the last piece of the puzzle, I'll update as soon as I can.
