Found a factory wagon rear sway bar: Thought they didn't exist?

Found one in the junkyard today in the rear of an OCC. I thought these didn't exist?

I even compared it to a sedan rear bat just in case it was some kind of modified sedan bar. It isn't.

I'm glad I found it though. I wasn't to keen about doing a Crown Victoria bar.

I took both the bar, and those little brackets zee that go into the control arms. My control arms have the same mounting holes for the brackets as the OCC I pulled them off of.

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

I found one on an OCC a couple of years ago. I was surprised as well. I bought the rear and the bar, but ended up selling them, and have since installed a CV bar on my wagon.

1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

Yup, they fit. Check the JY's. Better LCA help.

No. Their sway bar looks nothing like the one I have, and is also thicker.







Clearly significantly different than the swaybar that I have.
