No the 2014 uses the FE4 suspension setup which changed the mounting points for the rear sway bar and changed the lower control arms and sway bar.

You would have to revert your car to FE3 suspension setup

The arms have both mounts when they consolidated part numbers so yes you can use an inferior setup. You'll need the bushings too.

Well it's a bmr sway and end links so it's not a down grade I don't think.

The BMR is an upgrade to the stock bar, but the placement of the bar on the FE3 set up is inferior to the FE4 set up. You can tell a big difference when changing to the FE4 set up. I wouldn't go back.

Check out the JPSS 32mm sway bar. One of my favorite upgrades and it really enhanced the cornering characteristics/capabilities of my 1LE.

Yeah, don't do the old style bar. your 24mm solid bar is equal to about a 27mm hollow bar just to compare. The new style fe4 bar is then 4times more effective over the 2010 fe3 style on top of that

Does the 15in conversion lower control arms utilize the FE3 or FE4 mounting points for the rear bar?

If it utilizes just one of the two then your question is answered. If it utilizes both, I would still pick FE4.

Another question to ask is what is the car going to be used for? If its strictly going to be for the drag strip then keep the stock bar and save a few 100 bucks

New style sway doesn't fit the 15in conversion.

Why would you want too? I had Pedders on my 2010 and stock my 2013 handled just as good. 2013 is when they went with the new outboard sway setup.

If you want to upgrade your 2014 start looking at 1LE which is FE6 setup. or the Z28 setup. I am running the FE6 setup and it is great, have had it for 3 years. Thinking about upgrading to Z28 suspension though after my car is paid off next year.
