    Rear Sway Bar Mounting Question

    Does anyone have a pic showing how the rear sway bar mounts to the axle? I have a 99 T/A and am trying to bolt on a UMI rear sway bar. I know I'm missing some sort of u-bolts to mount it but would like to see how it's placed and what I need. Thanks!!

    My understanding is that you can use the appropriate size exhaust clamps to mount the sway bar. You should see witness marks on your axle showing where they should be positioned.

    Yep

    Glad you liked them.

    And like Jeff mentioned if you are missing the mounts exhaust clamps would work.

    thanks again all. 2 1/2" clamps did the trick well.
