You have it backwards. The washers should meet the sleeve with the 'dish' side up. Then the rubber to fit in the dish, swaybar, rubber bushing with cone meeting swaybar (like a sandwich and the swaybar is the meat,) then washer, and finally nut.

Main thing is the washer meeting the sleeve in the middle. (0 I 0)====(0 I 0)

Putt,

You can put the car on ramps to install the sway bar and be sure to rearrange the washer/retainers as Chris explained. Important...Unless you are deaf or have an affection for loud squeaking going over bumps, lube the bar bushings with Synthetic Chassis lube. Regular chassis lube doesn't work with Polyurethane bushings. I used Mobil I Synthetic chassis lube. It is the red grease. 4 bucks for a can at Kragens. I got the rear bar kit last week through Summit but haven't had a chance to install it yet. BTW, I got the original exhaust manifolds off and drilled out the one broken bolt and was about to reinstall with new gaskets when I detected a crack in the passenger side. Called Sanderson for headers and drove up to their shop in South San Francisco (Next door to Brizio Street Rods) to pick them up and when the parts guy went to the cupboard the cupboard was bare. Grrrrr. They were sold out. Have to wait another two weeks to get them.

Oh I see, The bushing nipples fit into the sway bar. OK, now I just have to conquer my fear of driving onto the ramps. Woo-hoo, his is my biggest job since installing front shocks.

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

Putt,

I did the installation on the floor of my garage. If you don't mind laying around. Didn't need ramps. If you have lowered your car and need some room to work, a floor jack and some jack stands to raise it a little helps. Don't forget to lube the inside of the fat bushings in the front mounting brackets. Lube the inside of the bushings where the sway bar goes through with synthetic chassis lube. If you don't, you will be back to take it apart and lube them. The squeaking is that annoying.

Mark

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

New sway bar is on! Now a question. I got the red chasxsis grease and slathered it on and in the end links. Then I greased the inside and the outside of the frame bushings and attached them. Should I have greased the outsides? The sway bar slides from left to right and I wonder how the end links will become centered between the spindle and the frame when driving. It looks to me that sliding one way or the other could cause some unhappy contact.

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

I'll answer that. The sliding is due to the grease on the inside, not the outside. I guess I'll just hope the end links, spindle and frame will all get along.

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

I just ordered the rear swaybar. It doesn't look to difficult to put on but looks can be deceiving, was there any tricks to putting it on? Any help would be grateful.

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

I had some difficulty with the rear sway bar installation. The flat mounting plates that bolt up to the underside of the trailing (control) arms barely reached the outer edge of the arm. I even considered making some better fitting plates. They are a fairly simple piece. Also, I ran into interference with the bar at the bottom of the differential housing when going over speed bumps or into the driveway at an angle. I suggest mounting the bar forward of the bottom of the pumpkin housing so the bar crosses in front of it running under the pinion snout. I will probably redo this installation to deal with the bar hitting the diff on bumps in a few weeks after I finish the headers and exhaust system. Any suggestions or comments out there?

Re: Addco/Quickor rear sway bars 65 Galaxie

Thanks Mark, new fat sway bar went on without a hitch. I like turning and still being able to see both fenders! Surprising special benefit was an increase in 10 mph, to over 60, without the car shaking. I think it was the new end links, the old ones were totally ripped. I give this job an A+.
