Default Where can I get new Sway bars?

I have done an FE2 overhaul a few months ago, minus the sway bars. It'* coming time where I am going to change them. Where can I purchase new ones from? I do not want used.

Well I just figured when I spent money on all new suspension and having it put in and all this other stuff like Bendix brakes all around..why am I going to put on a USED sway bar? I want a brand new one as stiff as it can get....

Swaybars don't have a constant load on them like coil springs do. I seriously doubt you'd ever know the difference. The impact on your wallet, however, is a huge issue.

The front bar is 150 at the dealer (at least). Depends on their markup.

Are there any other places other than a Dealer that I can go to?

and if not...where does everyone usually go for their swaybars (in used condition)?

Save the $$$ on the bars and get them from an SSE or SSEi with the FE2 suspension

We usually go to the wrecker and get an FE2 bar off any H body with the F41, FE2 and on some GM H bodies FE3...

Will be 92-99 On the bonnevilles... 92-98 or so on the Lesabres.... And the Olds 88 LSS if you can find any.... Thats where we usually get out bars at

Very helpful

Now another question, still related to. I had ordered new TRW swaybar endlinks, HD for front, regular rear (didn't see HD for rear)...are they Polyurethane or standard rubber? (They are installed now with FE1 Sways) If rubber or other than Polyurethane, where can I get Polyurethane? Does Energy Suspension have ones for my car?
