When i put my lift in front i put them same amount in my swaybar links also. I also just used threaded rod cut to length and some tubing over it. Without looking at it in the dark right now i think i used the stock end parts as in rubber pieces.

Just drop into any auto parts store with the length that you need and for 10 or 12 dollars they will fix you up.
Time is money as well, and it wont look booty fab. :doh:

When you factor in the cost of the hardware you are going to need to buy to put something together yourself plus gas, you are going to be pretty close to the $16.95 MAF wants for the links.

The rears are easily extended if you have a welder (or know someone who does).
Just sleeve what is there.
I have not been able to find aftermarket extended rear ones.

been there done that

I went through this on my 60. I used all-thread, which broke first day on the trail. Then I used a center pin bolt. That worked pretty good. I had a 6" spring-under, my problems were much greater than sway bars. Just leave the back undone. Free-the rear and your mind will follow.

You haven't found aftermarket sway bar links for 60s because they didn't come from the factory with a sway bar in the rear. Putting one in the back is a custom job, which entails stealing a rear sway bar from a 62 I believe.

See aviator and sig, I have a 62 and it gets driven on the street alot so I want to keep the rear swaybar.

Winslow.. How the world do you have a 6" SUA? And why?

Late model (85 & up) 60s have all the mounts for rear sway bars, but you are right, no sway bar.
Not much of a custom job but more of a bolt on.
When I mentioned the links I should have referenced the 62 in regards to the rear ones.
Sorry for any confusion :cheers:
