On the front any and all years. The back- none. You can go with a Gen 1 wagon for thicker rear bars. The biggest I found was 18mm.

Most people like to get the 24mm (Front) 26mm (rear) combo from the Gen I SHO.

The rear suspension is completely different between the sedans and wagons. Only a wagon rear sway bar will fit on the wagons. A 24mm front bar paired with an 18mm rear bar is going to handle pretty badly.

I have a 96 wagon and it has a 13mm rear sway bar. I know some say the 18mm gen 1 will fit the gen 3 with no issues. I have never seen one so I can't say too much abut it. However I do know the back of the muffler on the dual exhaust Duratec comes very close the the existing sway bar. I would be concerned that it may scrape the muffler it it is not precise.

I have been looking for a gen 1 wagon in the bone yards since I have heard this and can not find any.

If anyone has done this on a dual exhaust I would be interested to know how it went and how did it effect the ride?
