Sway Bar different in 15's?

Does anyone know if the rear sway bar changed in the 14-15 SS as compared to the 10-13? I'm in the middle of doing a 15 inch wheel conversion and and am using lower control arms modified off a earlier Camaro. My sway bar doesn't fit. Are there differences in sway bars?

Yes, the sway bar and control arms bolt up differently. FE4 suspension is the newer stuff, the older stuff is FE2

all years V6 are FE2.
'10 & '11 SS are FE3.
'12+ SS are FE4.

not sure on the verts; they may not follow the rules above.

I have a 2014 V-6 and got 2014 ZL1 swaybars and does not look like the rear will work. It looks like the end links are different. Anyone know the low down on this. Thanks

The sways on your V6 are probably inboard of your shocks if you want to run the ZL1 bar you'll have to get a set of V8 LCAs from a 2013 above where it mounts the sway bar outboard of the shocks....

The difference is mainly the shape of the sway bar and the way it (sway bar links) bolts to the control arms
