Yea they are pretty easy to install, just need a drill, drill bits and some basic tools.

There is also a HOW-TO over on G-E

Well, I'll be darned...that's a good deal.. I don't think they can be used on a chevy spring swap, can they??? Well, the bars being stock, of course... the can always be modified to fit.

Yes they can, Bob Rwenzing has modified his bars for the chevy spring swap. I dont believe he has installed them yet but he has them fabbed up.

Wow, those are cool... lol. I would have to consult with the "R-F geniouses" to make some, I guess.

Bad thing is... I don't know how to weld, so I'd have to get a shop to fab them for me, or i could get a friend to do it... Sometimes that's a bad idea.
