the '65-'70 B body and the '68-'72 A bodies use the same rear sway bar

i installed a rear bar on my '69 bel air a few years ago, used PS box bolt washers for spacers between

the bar and arm and used thick wall tubing inside the arms

 .....that's right Dan - does anyone know if the rear tie rod (panhard bar) is re-popped or if the station wagon

bushing for the tie rod is available.......so far my parts guy can't find it

The only bushings I have seen are some goofy 2 piece urethane ones that look like shock absorber ones that came with a set of old school performance shocks I got with a car once. And you have to reuse the original center sleeves.
