Rear sway bar Instructions - Robsweden - 04-19-2019

Hi

Anyone got a pdf instruction on how to install the addco rear sway bar in a 73 ? There should be some drilling involved for sure.

You can go to ADDCO's website and download instructions.

It looks like #679 and #996 have complete instructions.

As I said in the earlier post, #679 (600 series) and #996 (900 series) have the instructions for new installations (not replacements). #679 is attached.

The bar sits just like the one in the picture of the stock bar.

Mounts clamp in front of the axle on the spring as per the diagram, bar sits behind the axle. You connect the end links to the mounts and then raise the bar up to the frame to mark the location for the bushings. Drill holes in the frame and insert the u-bolts through the frame to secure the bushings and bar. You might have exhaust clearance issues, check that before drilling holes.
