AFAIK none of the E series wagons did.

A whiteline 30mm front/20mm rear combo works well . . . :wink:

No E-series wagons had them.

With X-series (XF being the exception) the utes, sedans and wagons all used leaf spring set ups. An yes, various X-series models had rear swaybars.

There's a thread on ehre that I started that someone put pictures of the one they fitted to there E-series wagon from an X-series.

I've got a Whiteline rear swaybar sitting here for my EF.
Problem is that where it mounts to the chasis there is fuel lines and that, so I've yet to mount it.

Another thing to look at is the BA/F RTV utes. They have factory fitted swaybars.
EDIT: actually I think it's tramp rods that they have factory fittted - not sure on swaybars.

I've fitted the rears to my cars - they weren't that hard.

Got a picture?
Way I see it I'm going to have to move some of the metal fuel lines in order to mount the Whiteline brackets or make my own custom bracekts.

Have look at http://www.fordmods.com/forums/post739569.html .
I welded my brackets in. The pics are an XH, but the wagon was pretty much the same, although as you've noted, the LHS bracket will be close to fuel lines (the XH only had the LPG line nearby). I wrapped the lines with wet rag, and kept a spray bottle handy to cool the area down - the fuel lines do have insulators, so the heat from the subframe won't affect them too much, but again, protect them well and you should have no probs.

The problem that I had with mine is that the fuel lines are exactly were the bracket needs to sit and it's the metal line aswell if I remember so moving wasn't a real option. I'll have another look soemtimes soon.
