Your truck definitely came from the factory with one in the front but probably not in the rear. You can buy an accessory rear bar from Hellwig or use the stock rear one that Ford and Mazda install on some models.

hillbank motorsports seels the leftover roush thunderbolt swaybar kits. It includes a larger front swaybar along with new bushings and the rear swaybar along with everything needed to install it. The install is quite simple, except for the upper bolt on the drivers side for the rear.(fuel tank in way) Still it isn't hard, just a pain in the a**. For the improvment it's well worth it.

Beltech also makes a 1.25" swaybar for the front of our trucks. It's mucho stiffo.

My 94' has F & R so I bet yours does as well, upgrading to a 1" or 1 1/8" Bronco II rear sway bar will make a huge difference in handling says RPS.

You happen to measure the difference? I'm debating on doing quick disconnects on mine.

i removed my rear one but still have the front. i was looking at my front end and my idea for a quick disconnect wasnt going to happen. so i put that idea on the back burner...


but let me know if you figure something out...
