Post rear lower control arms

I've got a 74 olds cutlass that did'nt come with a rear sway bar but I want to put one on it, the problem is the lower control arms don"t have the bolt holes in them,will i have to buy more control arms or how can I make these work i mean as far as being able to bolt my sway bar in the correct position also does it matter if my control arms are boxed or not?

Your should be able to get a sway bar out of the scrap yard for a 73-77 A-body and install it without getting new lower control arms. If I'm correct, the 73-77 A-body rear bars bolt to an insert that goes up into the lower rear control arms. (Similiar to mid 70's B-bodys) The instert is bolted in, it's just a matter of drilling holes. I believe this is how they are done.
