Default 03 or Later Rear Sway Bar

I'm looking for a rear sway bar w/ mounting hardware. My 05 Touring Convertible has all the threaded mounting locations. The factory one would be great.

The 01 and 02 were the only PTs that had rear sway bars. Mine didn't have one.

As Xtrm said, the 03 up PTs have no external rear swaybars. Chryslers explanation was that they beefed up the rear axle from 03 up and that they no longer needed an external bar. Who's to say if it works as well that way. I do know that many of the people over at The Crew have scavenged the salvage yards for years to grab the bars from the early PTs to transplant onto their newer PTs. Of course you can buy "new" aftermarket bars. There are several vendors out there market them.

They have them listed on car-part.com and eBay. I'll do some further checking. Will the 01-02 sway bar fit? It has a different P/N.

I'll let you guys know if I'm successful.

Yes they fit. When I first bought my car I took my wife's sway bar ( 01N/A )and installed it in my 03 GT with no problems.

Gus,

What else did you take? I'm surprised it still runs. LOL

I should have done that before I sold my 01 LTD.
