Sway Bar?

I installed a Heidts Mustang II on my 1956 Chevy pickup but they don't offer a sway bar for this application. I should of checked before I bought it. Does anyone have this same application that they put a sway bar on? I purchased one that was suppose to fit but it doesn't. Any ideas? Do I really need one on the fron? I installed one on the rear.

Thanks,
Ken

you can always go to a torsional splined sway bar. Progressive Automotive builds custom ones.... and you can also get them from Alston's Chassis Works and Art Morrison Ent.

Not entirely apples to oranges: Sway bar 4 mustang II IFS in 1954 F100

Depending on how you drive, the rear-only bar will tend to make the rear end looser than w/o a bar. But unless the rear bar is very big, this won't likely be a big deal- just something to be aware of.

It wouldn't hurt to do some practice loops w/it in a deserted parking lot or ? to get a feel for how it behaves w/just a rear bar.
