According to my reference (Mustang Recognition Guide 1965 - 1973), 351 4-barrel or larger engines for 1971 included the heavier front stabilizer bar and rear stabilizer bar.

Staggered rear shocks are also included with 351 4-barrel, Boss 351, and 429 engines (same reference).

I'll second that info and confirm it because my early production M-code has em.

My '71 Grandé has them and a toploader with 9" pumpkin.
It also has the competition suspension package and I thought
that was related to the rear sway bar. I thought the 'staggered shocks'
was related to the engine size but not the sway bar.

My '71 M code has them, along with a 9-inch.

I was under the impression that staggered shocks were a 4 speed item, and autos had parallel shocks? shrug2

M-code brethren unite! I think we are one of the smaller subsets within our forum...except for Rex and his Sprint convertible, the Boss 351 guys and maybe the 429ers. All the other cars seem to be more prevalent on here.
