The wagons don't have a rear sway bar stock.. I found one at the wreckers in a wagon.. a kmac one, and took it. Still haven't put it in.. No time.


Cheers

EL ones will fit earlier models I believe, but I'm also pretty sure they used the same sizes along the whole E-Series range.

So is that fitting a sedan one to the wagon? Hows it fit in?

No, it means buying an aftermarket one. Sedan ones won't fit without serious modification. And the wagons are wider.

The one I got was from a wagon(ED I think), but it had aftermarket suspension, including the kmac swaybar that I pinched.

Cheers

Gday twr7cx, I just fitted a sway bar of my old XW sedan to my EF Station Wagon. It is an after market Lovell's kit and fitted straight on, only had to fit brackets to the inside of the chassis rail by drilling and bolting the same as I had to for the XW. Made a huge difference helped with that loose floppy feeling the wagons have. I also made and fitted 25mm lowering blocks looks much better.

To give you an idea... the back swaybar for mine is actually pretty damn small... its about hlaf the diameter of my front one.. which for this week is stock.



Cheers

Front bar on my fairmont wagon is 25mm rear one of the XW is 19mm seems to be doing the job.
