I am installing an 8.8 from a 2001 Mustang in a 1978 Salon. Has anyone figured out how to use the Mustang sway bar with this combo? The Mustang bar attached to the control arms, are there aftermarket control arms that allow bolting in the Mustang bar?

If you’re using adjustable lowers, I don’t believe there is a way to attach the stock Mustang bar. Could be possible with UMI’s single adjustable lowers but I have doubts about the control arm bushings working with the Mustang housing brackets. Might be possible using Mustang lower arms?

I went with the 3rd Gen F body rear bar that needs straightened and attached to the upper control arm plate, and made it adjustable while I was at it.
