Yeah, I have them. Get some super glue also. Most would not snap on, super glue did the trick.

Went to the scrapyard yesterday and after going to 10 yards or more I finally found a GT with a sway bar. Such an easy install. But my friends found a front sway bar and I didn't know if I should have picked it up or not. Is the front sway bar in a GT larger than the sixxers?

I have a GT and a Mach1 sway bar here... Got it for free from some guy on CL that wanted to get rid of them... Reason why I never installed it is because someone from another forum told me that the V6 are just the same as the GT and Mach's....

I tried to do a quick comparison between the GT and Mach front Sway bar and I didn't really notice any difference... I could've overlooked it if there was any...
