Question 2011 rear sway bar question

Hey all, does anyone know if a Speed3 rear sway bar will fit on a 2011 2.5 hatch? I cannot seem to find any info on which bars and years are interchangeable. It seems the first and second gen Speed 3 has the same rear sway bar part number (aftermarket), and I see aftermarket rear bars for the first gen 3's, but not second gen non speed3... strange. I am hoping to pick up a used second gen speed 3 rear bar for about half the price as an aftermarket if it will fit. Any help is appreciated.

I don't have an answer to your question, but I just upgraded the front and rear swaybars on my 2006 Mazda 3 and it feels great taking sharp turns. Hope someone answers your question soon so you could know what I'm talking about. Good luck...

Look for 2nd Gen Speed3 rear sway bar. Finding one sharply discounted even used is rare but you might luck out timing wise on Craigs List or EBay. I'm looking over the past year and they do pop up on Ebay. Even saw one as low as $50 and check the forums for someone parting out their car... you will want to get new bushings. I'll be ready to pull the trigger next year on my car. You'll need new endlinks too or a sleeve for the horizontal bolt since the Speed3's is a larger size hence the swaybar mounting hole is larger than on the 2011 3S.

Do you know for sure it's a direct fit if it comes with the speed3's end links? It mounts up the same?
