Rear Sway Bar

Anybody want to add a rear sway bar?

I know a guy who has a rear sub-frame that fits with a rear sway bar. I was going to get it, but I'm not so sure I am. I'ld really like to help him get rid of it though. If you want it, let me know and I'll give you his contact info.

The clamps cost $70ish and this costs $50 so its really a toss of of how much work you are willing to do mixed with how secure you feel about the clamps.

Its really either throw it on quick with clamps and hope for the best of spend a full day putting this in and feel safer with OE products.

I don't have the know-how to install it, so I'm probly going with clamps, just thought I would ask around to see if anybody is interested.
