decided my first gen needed a rear sway bar today figured i make a guide installation takes about 1 hour easy work a trip to your local welder or garage is required but probably wont charge you.
here is were the sway bar will bolt on you will have to drill holes 1" back from the large hole and same on the furthest hole from it
next you will have to make 2 of these make them about 3-4" long so they just dont spin around in the frame
put it in the frame above drilled holes
for the furthest back hole you will have to fish a bolt through the frame with a wire its pritty easy just feed it through the small hole and out the large hole then spin the wire around the threads on the bolt and pull it through
the reason you have to pull the brackets back 1" is to prevent contact with the coils and to give the way bar a 90' angle to the links when sitting on the ground if you do not get a 90' angle your sway bar will not work well instead of transferring force into the bar it will flex around it
after a good test drive i found the new sway bar worth the time in a hard corner it stiffens up the rear and will almost kick out if you get violent in the turn .
