Mustang II is the common set up used on most every one built. I've never seen one in person that didn't use it. The earliest kits were build on VW platforms.

Lots of aftermarket suspension parts are available.

thanks for the information. it's a mustang II front end, but stock sway bar doesn't fit.

Looked through all my paper work and manuals and sure enough, it was an option supplied by Classic.
There was also one for the rear. MX maybe ?
I got my kit second hand and unassembled. It was the deluxe kit with all the extras so it was already there along with the 3rd link option. I looked at it tonight and can jack it up to get pictures and basic measurements if you think it would help. It mounts to the very front cross bar and looks to be about 3/4" diameter. There is no picture of it in my 1989 assembly manual. There is however, a print in the addendums & templates envelope that shows the bracket and hiem joint connection to the lower a-arm.
It's faded and hard to read, but I'll see if my wife can scan and copy it. I can also look for any tags or other info on the bar.

my car was not finished when I traded for it. I used a mustang II rear sway bar with modification. I have an aftermarket mustang II sway bar ordered hopefully it will fit,. Thanks again for the reply.

I found one on ebay for a street rod. it installed behind the front suspension. car now handles better with both anti sway bars.

Glad to hear you got one to work.
Could you list the details while it's fresh in your head to help others in the future ?
I've not seen one that mounted from behind.

Thanks. Great to know. 44" hole-to-hole.
Looks like what I have mounted in front.
My 351W has a front sump oil pan and could not be mounted behind the front suspension. Still nice to know that option for others.
