Anyone fitted a Whiteline sway bar to the rear of a leaf spring Falcon?
picking mine up (front and back) tomorrow and I know the rear isn't as simple as off with the old and on with the new as they don't have rear ones from the factory. Just wondering if anyone has fitted one to there leaf spring falcon before and got any tips/pointers or can tell me a bit about it.

yeah. as I said from factory they don't, but whitline and a few other mobs make kits for them. It was actually a member on here yonks ago that pointed me in the right direction and I'm about to have a shower and go pick mine up!

ive got one on my XH, its pretty easy to fit, couple of u-bolts on the diff and drill 2 holes for the chassis brakets, bolt it up. Works pretty good, keeps the car pretty flat at the rear on corners, alot more than it was before without it. got mine off ebay for 40 bucks, still new.

I've seen and owned a few leaf-sprung cars with rear anti-roll bars. Each kit mounts a little different, it should come with instructions? Or give Whiteline a call...
