Anyone have a link to a sway bar installation write up? I just bought one for my 92 GTZ.

For the front or back? My guess is front, the rear is easy.

Should just be some U bolts that look more like a "v" and some mounts that bolt on to the lower shock bolt. The mounts should be in the box.
What did you get?

Not sure on that, I thought it was aftermarket.
Did you get any W41 parts off that?

Someone was selling a sway bar on fb beretta page and I commented but got no response. Someone else messaged me and said they had one off a 442 for sale. I bought it lol.

I thought the 442's had different rear axles?

I thought they had the different bars as well. Dont they end at a 45 degree angle to the axle instead of the 90 degree angle the beretta has? Can you upload a pic of the bar?

Yup, wrong ends. That will work on j-bodys but not our L-bodys.
