Default Looking for a BroncoII Rear Sway Bar for your Ranger? Look inside!

Finally found a BroncoII Rear Sway Bar local, I was holding my toungue until I saw it with my own eyes, as I had to drive two hours to pick it up! haha!

For those of you who have been looking for one of these bars, check out Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. They have about 30 BroncoII registered in their database across the country. I happened to find one in Lakeland, FL, two hours away from me. I sent an email and had a reponse the next morning. I sent my payment and had them hold it for me and drove down to pick it up the same day. You will want to make sure they go and actually MEASURE the bar. I made it very clear I wanted the 1" rear sway bar and everything was perfect!

Here she is in all her glory, straight out of the salvage yard. I paid $50 for it and they pulled everything for me.


Cleaned up good as new with a little purple power!


Here, you can really see the difference between the stock ranger sway bar(this is the rear bar in the Roush kit from Hillbank Motorsports) and the BroncoII sway bar:


The end links were different from the ones I had installed on my Ranger, so I was worried it wouldnt fit without replacing the ranger endlinks with the ones from the BII, the bar was also shaped a little differently. Good news guys, it bolts right up with the stock ranger endlinks! However, I may try installing the BII endlinks as well(new ones with Energy bushings) since they look a little beefier and they are shorter.


Please excuse the dirty truck, its been raining every day here in Central FL. Getting ready for the new transplant!


You can clearly see here the difference in the thickness of the sway bars.

For those of you who may have overlooked this in the first post, here it is again! Go get your BII bars!

For those of you who have been looking for one of these bars, check out Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. They have about 30 BroncoII registered in their database across the country. I happened to find one in Lakeland, FL, two hours away from me. I sent an email and had a reponse the next morning.

I searched for a 1990 BroncoII, then the part is actually called a "Stabilizer Bar Only" on the site. After you select that, it may ask if you want to search for related vehicles or ONLY BroncoII, select ONLY and it will show you all the BroncoII's in the country. Then just try to find the closest one to your location.

Arrow Re: Looking for a BroncoII Rear Sway Bar for your Ranger? Look inside!

OLD thread but it looks like I sourced a rear sway bar. I am on ford's website for brackets and it appears they are not u-bolts.

See attached pictures: Is there any concern with that?
