Title: S12 IRS- Rear Sway Bar End-Link BOLT Length
Post by: dustins12 on 07:30:00 PM / 01-Feb-17
Hey guys!

I was just curious if anybody knew what the length of the bolt is for the rear sway bar end-link? Lost mine and need to replace them.

Hello from Orlando. I have an 87 SE V6, but I think the IRS sway bar end links would be the same. I pulled mine out today as part of removing the rear sub-frame. Mine are 6.5 inches long. It's a stud with threads on both ends and a square portion in the middle. I'd post a pic if this site would allow direct pic uploads. If you find a universal set that fits, please post the part number and brand for me. I'm gonna need a set too.

I bought some universal Energy Suspension bushings from the parts store, that come with washers. I just need to get the right length bolts, and the sleeves. Pretty much making a "custom" set. I just wanted to make sure I didn't buy bolts that were too short.

Also, I'm in Jacksonville.  Like two hours north of you lol
