You need a rear sway bar dude.

I wouldn't undersell them...tubular arms are a lot stronger/stiffer than the factory stamped arms.

Are they universal? It looks like their length can be adjusted by turning the bushings...

In case anyone else was interested, I just priced them out on suicidedoors.com and it comes to just over $100 for everything you need. One problem is that their bushings are too wide, so you would need to source those elsewhere. Or you can buy stock and tooling from mcmaster, diy it , and prolly come out with 20-30 bucks in your pocket over suicidedoors.

If you went to Heim joints instead of bushed ones, the suicidedoors cost would go down by like 40 bucks, but your ride will be a little rougher and more responsive. Plus you will have to change out the heims every year or so.

Stock replacements are like 40 bucks each I think at the dealer.
