Anyone able to confirm or deny weather XH utes have a factory rear sway bar?
Overtook a white one today (had red striping - XR style, aside from that just stock - no XR front or anything, not lowered, no fancy wheels, just normal), noticed it had a thin rear swaybar.

No, trying to find a rear swaybar for my wagon. I have a whiteline one sitting here, but it mounts to the chasis were the fuel lines and brake line runs, so I'm not keen on moving them. was hoping that if the XH's had one it would be easier to fit.

Ride: EF Fairmont Station Wagon.

Power: 150 rwkw

Location: Mandurah
WA, Australia

Fitted a Lovell's XW Sedan swaybar to my EF wagon, used 75x75x10mm angle as the mounting points on the chassis, slid up behind the pipes. Worked well no need to move anything.

well my next plan is to make some new custom brackets and fit this whiteline bar.

Its a pretty basic bracket but it works. Heaps strong enough, no movement in the bracket at all.
