Concord rear sway bar
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:55:54 PM »
I recently picked a rear sway bar and various linkage pieces from an 83 Concord and I'm wondering if there's a way to make this work with the back end of an 83 Eagle. I see some obvious points in the Dana 35 Concord and Eagle. The U bolts on the Eagle are an actual U shape while the Concord's were flipped. My Eagle's differential sits under the leaf springs while the Concord's rear rests above the leafs. Did I miss something important?

I did it with just the rear frame brackets remounted and longer end links on my previous wagon with almost 8" of rear lift. (I was midway through the front lift when I found major frame rot and scrapped it)
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
