    Default Another guy looking for a rear sway bar for early box

    Still looking. Getting ready to do rear control arm bushings, so it's the perfect time.
    Thanks.

    Where'd ya find the control arms bushings? RockAuto doesn't have them for '85 and I don't know where else to look as an international customer...

    I think energy suspension 4.3151G (black) or 4.3151R (red) is the one to use. IIRC, the control arms are the same up to 97 as far as bushing size goes.

    We had a discussion pretty recently about fabricating a bracket out of angle iron to attach to the rear control arms and allow you to bolt a later model bar in with some creative hardware. 80ís PI rear sway bars seem to be rare as henís teeth these days. We may have to start getting creative.

    Will you settle for the smaller version or must it be the PI?

    I run across the smaller ones every so often. None on hand currently (but I let two go to the crusher on the last two boxes that hit the local junkyard).

    I picked up the ADTR control arms, and installing the sway at the same time would be perfect.
    I'd go for any sway currently as the invisible version I have is not meeting my needs..
