Question Rear Sway Bar Installation Kits

Hello Cruisers,

I've been working on my suspension lately, lowered the car a bit with ST Springs and replaced the shocks and struts (Tokico's and KYB's). Added poly bushings, bump stops and spring seats. Love the feel!

Not afraid of the exit ramps anymore! Made the ride more stable and not to harsh on the bumps even though lowered.... and it looks cool lol

Then I purchased the Eiback front and rear sway bar kit. delivered from ULTRAREV and there it sits in my garage....

I CAN NOT FIND AN INSTALLATION KIT FOR THE REAR BAR !
Eibach 2860.320HKR.

I have made three separate on-line purchases for this kit only to have the venders inform me AFTER I paid (one to three weeks later) that although listed on their web-sites the part is no longer available (discontinued by Eiback). (insert bad word!)

I have searched up and down to find this kit available somewhere to no avail.

The kit should have the endlinks, brackets nuts and bolts ETC for the rear install.

Can anyone suggest an alternative kit by another company? Kit/Part numbers?
I want to install both front and back at the same time. Back sounds tricky but I have a good tool holder to help lol

Frustrated in Queens NYC
Danny

I decided to go with Suspension Techniques 01-09 PT Cruiser 1.4" front and rear (very mild) Lowering Springs #60006. Streets here in NYC are to harsh for slamming..lol

Great buy on E-bay" STILL AVAILABLE
"ST Sport Springs are manufactured to the highest worldwide quality standards: they are custom wound out of high-tensile steel, rigorously tested and inspected, and powder-coated for durability"

Car feels great. Next the new sway bars

I bought the same lowering springs and only used the rears - I feel the front is low enough as is ....

You may have noticed that your overall ride was softer? This is actually a good compromise to just even out the looks of the PT and get an improvement in the suspension. This set up has an improved anti-body roll over having a stock sway bar installed.

This kit only has the rods from sway bar to body no axle bushings and brackets. It is mainly for a OEM(stock) rear sway bar. It is not a complete installation kit which is what he needs for an aftermarket rear sway bar. Stock(OEM) sway bar bushing are to small in diameter for the new aftermarket sway bar.
