    Sway Bar question

    Bought this sway bar on ebay today, thinking it was for the rear. Guess that's what I get for opening the wallet before taking a closer look. My question is, is there any way to make it work as a rear sway bar for the 60? Since I have already made the purchase I might as well give it shot.

    Okay gents. Just bought an 85 FJ60, looking to restore over time. First issue is protecting the underside from rust. My question is: which is better POR-15, Eastwood, Bullet, Chassis saver, etc. Any thoughts/experiences would be greatly appreciated.
