Looking for any info on fitting a swaybar to a barra converted DC LTD. I've been informed that the standard bar won't fit. Does anyone know of any company that have made a bar yet? Preferable in Perth W.a. ? Or even an eastern states if they don't require the measurement or car as would needs to purchase online.

Yes true, there's a few places that will make you what you need.

E series would need the sump mod or K frame-after that may not need to do anything with the swaybar.

ok. from what i understand & have read, the EA/EB/ED just needs either sump fins trimmed or sump trimmed or k-member front bar cut/bent or moved forward. EF/EL need sump trimmed. all have the swaybar at the rear of the sump. only have problems are when fitting a FG barra coz of rear sump pan [BA/BF have front pans]. that sound right to you :?:
