Hellwig Sway Bars

I have a 2017 3011 DS Forrester. It has a Hellwig sticker on the side. Looking underneath it is stock Ford sway bars. Has anyone else found this to be true?

How do you know by looking at them what kind they are? Since they started using them as standard equipment you can't tell by looking. Same with the shocks. Colors are Bilstein but numbers are Ford.

Hellwigs are 1 3/8 front and 1 1/2 for the rear. But they could be made by them for Ford to Ford specs.

The Stock sway bars will be labeled as such I.e. Ford etc. If no label is attached, you can tell by shape and thickness. Attached is a pic with the stock rear bar on the left and the Hellwig version on the right.
