Rear Suspension Sway bar diagram needed
#1
Okay, I'm now to the point where I need to take more pictures before I take stuff apart on the 73 Mach. Lesson learned. I'm putting the rear leafs and the diff back together and I forgot how the rear sway bar plate goes with the shock absorber spring clip plate. Looking at the shop manual fig 1 doesn't even show stagered shock set up nor the sway bar.

Guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I must have a few thousand photographs of 71-73 mustangs, but no one ever takes a detailed shot of the underbody. Next time some one has their 'stang up on the rack, take a few photos for the rest of us to figure out how things go back together.

Wow, I found it. It took a few hours looking through the web but here's a great site for stock paint marks and stuff.

Oh yea, and here's the rear sway bar diagram.

I think I've finally put the shock plate and sway bar plate on the right way. Here's a shot of the finally assembly from the bottom looking up.
