Default Rear Swaybar parts & mounting help please

I have the factory rear swaybar + install kit. I remember someone posting that the kit does not include a couple of bolts (and nuts?) to complete the install. I don't want to get halfway through and have to take it off to go get parts. My searchs have not located this thread. Anyone know where it is? Also if there is a thread that actually explains the install I would appreciate this too as the kit has not instructions. I am sure it is pretty straight forward and I do have the manual on CD.

Thanks in advance!

Hey thanks Robert. I should have known you would find it. Hey, I bought a set of Mopar duals. They were driving me crazy talking to me from the garage so I took a day off work yesterday and installed them. I am sure they aren't as loud as your 3" setup but I got a good deal from Ant on this board (thanks Ant).

Thanks again.

sweet, I know you wanted the DTM's instead of the duals, but I'm sure your happy. I know what you mean about your mods talking to you, I've taken a day off from work to install mods because I was too impatient to wait for the weekend.

Cal Cruzer, are you going to run the stock front bar with the rear factory stock bar of a few years ago? If yes, please let us know how that works as I want to run that setup with stock springs and wheels and performance shocks. Also ever since the Block Party I am really interested in the 2.5" MOPAR/Borla duals! That stage 1 I drove on the strip that day was sooooo nice!!

SteelBlue, yes I bought the rear bar and install kit from a PTer back east that had never installed it on his. Got it all for about $110 shipped. It was still in the original shipping box. Looking forward to getting it installed. My wife is still unaware of the new exhaust and bar. I wonder if I can convince her that it always had dual exhaust on it when she finally notices?[:I]

I really wasn't expecting a big change with the exhaust but was pleasently surprised by the midrange and upper RPM improvement in the way it pulls. It really does accelerate quicker above about 3500 RPM on up.
