I have a freind who owns a stock 1999 zx3.
his car is totaly stock; ok?
he does not have a factory rear sway bar.....
his car never came with one! his body has less roll from my 2000 zx3!! his wiring harness looks a little different also.
his top end took him to almost 130mph!!!
we were drivingfrom tampa along with a corvette
we were not "RACING"!!!!
just driving a little too fast!! speding is against the law kids... i do not condone it..
anyway...that's my 2 cents....

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">There was a 1999 Focus, the 4-door SPI available late in the year. I also remember seeing a VERY limited number of ZX3's running around that year....but I'm pretty sure they were for testing purposes only, which doesn't suprise me since many auto manufacturers run test cars around this area .

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Mine is a 99/00 Ford Focus ZX3. That is why I have the metal valve cover along w/ the fact that my ZX3 also came w/ two resonators for the air intake. One is attached to the air box and the other one went over the valve cover. Mine does have the rear sway bar and yes they do exist. Earliest one I think was like in October or something to that effect. Mine was built in November of 1999.

Just because its built in 1999 dosent mean its a 99 model year. All cars come out like in september/october of the year before (i.e. a 2004 car will be out in late 03)

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Those that had the metal valve covers where from 1999. Ford Switched over to plastic ones like less than 3 or 4 months later. So yes mine is 1999 model.
