66 Chevy J bar

I am puting a 87 GM pickup rear end under a 66 Pickup and i built a braket to weld to the axle tube for the J bar, or panhard bar to go to. I was going to reuse the stud from the old rear end but it is going to take some work to reuse it.Has any one here changed rears in a Chevy pickup with coil springs?

If you built a bracket then just use a bolt or stud that fits the end of the panhard bar. Are you using an adjustable bar?

No i am use its factory bar. It has a 5/8 hole. I wondered how much force will be on this bolt? I dont want to end up with something that may fail. The end on its bar were the bolt gos is thicker than the bars that use heims ends and it looks like the longer stud would bend easyer but maybe their isnt alot of force on it.

It's just a locating bar to keep the rearend centered. I don't think there's much force on it. Any movement should be handled by the bushings.
Are you lowered?
If so you'll need an adjustable one.

No its not lowered. I have put the rear end,front end and mastercyl/brake booster from a 86 chevy 1/2 ton under it. There were and are alot of these pickups around but its hard finding out any thing about them.

There'a a guy on the 60-66 section named Captainfab who can set you up with brackets for your booster and brackets for power steering set up too.
