factory sway bar end links are too long factory sway bar end links are too long

We've been systematically upgrading the 2020 Connect suspension and found out that the Factory Ford/Motorcraft end links are too long. Meaning that the sway bar is being deliberately forced into a negative angle or -20°. Typically the sway bar should be anywhere from -10° / Level / +10° We discovered this when attempting to add a new factory and aftermarket end link to the van and they are all too long. Motorcraft. Moog, Duralast and Mevotech to name a few, all have end links that measure 12'' when the end link should be 11.50 inches. We were able to acquire a set of adjustable end links and set the measurement to 11.50 inches (292mm).. Installed the links and placed the van on level ground. The sway bar was lifted from it's -20° to the correct and ideal level position. Do yourself a favor and add a set of adjustable end links (set to 11.5 inches or 292mm) and you WILL see a difference in handling.
