The underside of the V6 has the brackets to hold the rear antisway bar and the brackets to hold it to the lower shock mount match up with the holes. I've got all the nuts and bolts - Ford parts for the GT installation - but not the bar.
Was wondering if anyone has put a rear anti-sway bar on their V6.
Also, Ford list two - one for the coupe and one for the 'vert.
Steeda folks tell me their's does fit a V6 but that it requires more stuff (parts) - and beyond that, I can't get a straight answer.
By thw way, Kevin (from Clevenger Ford, Porterville, CA) sells the bar less than my ford dealers here - $137 vs $170.
It isn't a good idea to just bolt a rear swaybar from a mustang GT onto a V6 because the front swaybar on the GT is bigger than the front swayar on the V6. You have to match the swaybars to each other or else you can get some undesired and perhaps dangerous handling characteristics.
John has a really good point, and one we should probably pay attention to.. These swaybars were designed as aftermarket for a GT.. they're probably made alot stronger, able to take much much more power, that what should really be put on a basic v6. Im not saying not to do it, just becareful and make sure you know how it handles before trying something crazy

Thanks to the help on this forum we now have our ?05 Mustang. It took 149 days but it was worth it! It was built 7/19/05 and at the dealer 7/22/05. We took delivery 7/25/05!
