Do A Bodies have rear sway bars or not?

My ‘68 442 doesn’t have a rear sway bar. Was it removed or do they not come with rear sway bars?

Yes it is a true 442. I just rebuilt the entire suspension and didn’t even notice it was missing a rear sway bar until I removed the lower control arms.

Well then, it should definitely have one. Are the control arms boxed?

Control arms are boxed. Looks like a I need to go sway bar shopping.

Shouldn't be too hard to find. '64-'72 A-bodies would all use the same unit. I think I saw somebody on here advertising one (unfortunately including the boxed control arms that you already have) for a not-bad price not too long ago.

You also can buy the box plates and weld them to what you have....

This place has good prices. I have bought from them and they were good, good sway bars, fast shipping. Look under suspension parts.
