Post Ford Courier pickup sway bar for hot rods

I have mentioned using Ford Courier sway bars on old car chassis before on this board. I just ran across this snapshot of an in-progress instllation of one - a picture is worth a thousand words.

These can be adapted to virtually any old car frame that runs a straight axle and buggy springs. All you need is the bar and associated brackets and bushings from a junk yard pickup, some 2" square tubing and a welder. Sure solves the old body roll problem.

Hi, Willys!
Thanks for the tip! I'm sure to use it in the future.
By the way, the term "buggy springs" used referring to early hot rods does not generally mean longitudinal dual leaf springs as illustrated in your snapshot.
"Buggy springs" is a term almost exclusively used to describe the springs used on Ford passenger cars from 1909-48 and Ford pickups from 1909-41.
That is, transverse leaf springs. one each in front and back.
Thanks again for the tip!
