Don't forget too that the Wagons never came with a swaybar!
IMO, that could be a major contributor to what you're mistaking for chassis flex.

IMO yes.
More weight in the a** end, and leaf springs, it would slop around like a 40 year old whore.
If you can find a swaybar to fit (either aftermarket, or I'm sure there'd be a swaybar off another leaf sprung ford that would fit), it would really help control the rear end.

Whiteline Rear sway bar (28mm) - BFR38 - $171.82 + GST

Hows that? Suits an EF wagon so I presume it'd be the same.

umm I'm pretty sure it's 20mm, I want to get one for my wagon I think it should make a big difference considering there is no rear swaybar at all.
