The sway bar I am currently running is a 1 3/8 solid bar. The bar is 37 1/2 inches long. you can get this stuff form stock car parts shops or even ebay pretty reasonable.
When I bolted the fatman arms in I just forced them in, didn't really think much of it. I don't think the control arm can line up perfectly because the front bolt is maybe 1/4 of an inch off due to the straight bolt setup. When I installed my arms I went to the rare parts setup on the front control arm mounts. I used a old steering shaft and sleeves to see how far out of wack the holes were. I used a dremel to open up the rear control arm mount. I welded a thick washer over elongated holes, I also added the second shear for each bolt which I wanted to do anyway.
