I'm about to upgrade my rear sway bar on my ZX3 and want to put my OEM Sway on my wife's swayless 08 Sedan.

Anyone know what hardware I will need to install it?

Thanks.

This says 07, but AFAIK, the suspensions didn't change much in that department for the rear. Get under your car and see what you can see, compare it to this guide. Chances are the same principles apply.

So you will need a swaybar, (Get the SVT one 'cause it's the BOMB,)
Some endlinks,
Some bushings,
and someone who will weld the appropriate brackets to your rear subframe.

If you don't have access to someone who will weld, a muffler shop will probably do it for you.

You could go with Steeda's bracket-based adapter kit, but I would advise against it; the install doesn't allow the proper swaybar geometry, and once the brackets wear in and form to the contours of the subframe, it starts to clunk from the rear end all the time. Gets pretty annoying.

Thanks!
I really have to figure out how to search the forums... I can't find anything!

I want to use the sway that I'm taking off my ZX3, cause it's free. Other than the brackets everything seems self explanatory. I'll just get my mechanic at work to weld them on.
