None of them do...same as wagons didn't either. A rear sway bar same as an XD sedan would fit, but there are no brackets for it on an XH or even an XG, XF.

Depending on the driving your doing, you don't need a lokka, LSD is fine, better for town driving.. Yeah, extra tank on the other side, like what the Outback utes had.

Theres a bit of measuring and drilling to get the brackets in place. Not overly hard

If you buy a kit from whiteline they supply the brackets but the instructions are a bit vague.

You will definately notice an improvement

It helps to lube the springs, where they rub on the pads. You can get better shockies.
