Default A Ford (cough, cough) rear sway bar!

A post over on Monte Carlo SS was interesting! Mounting a '92-up Ford Crown Vic, Town car, Marquis, cop car rear sway bar (21mm) on a g-body. This is supposed to get rid of the binding caused by the stock rear bars on the LCA's. The bushing are already on the bars (bushings are not slit). Use axle tube brackets from a 3rd gen Camaro, end links from the Ford, and home made frame brackets.
Keyser would like this because cost is ALOT cheaper than buying an after market set-up ($20.00 vrs. $320.00)!

Doug
