Sway Bars

My answer is probably in the Knowledge Base but I didn't see it. What I have is a 28Ford Coupe with SBC, 4speed and Nova(10 Bolt) rear. Suspension wise I have a Mustang II IFS and coil overs and ladder bars w/Panhard Rod out back.
Can someone give me the links to go to so I can figure out the right(meaning safe) way to install sway bars front or rear?
Thanks in advance for your help, you guys have been a bif help to me in the past.
Jerry

sway bars

As for the sway bars, I would recommend contacting whomever you got the other suspension parts from, and what they recommend as to bar diameter, arm length, mounting location, etc.

That is one of the problems, The ladder bars came on the car and I don't know who the manufacture is.
Anyone have any other ideas?
Thanks

I dont think i would put a sway bar on the rear with ladder bars unless they are floating as not welded to the rear end. I would be a pretty big bind and not work. Measure your front and you should be able to use a torsion style anti roll bar on the front with splined ends and arms you can bend to fit your car.
