    Normally found on C & K30's. If you have one with the complete parts to bolt up to my '85 K30, let me know.

    Wes, i have a complete rear say bar set-up that i took off a truck that had a utility bed. I'm not sure what truck it was but it wasn't a K series as it was a 2wd. It did have a 14ff in it and i have everything except the U-bolts and end link kits (those were all bent). The end link kits can be bought new or even made very easily. Not sure how something like this would get shipped as it is big and awkward.

    I'm still interested in it. Do you know if the bar mounted under the 14FF or above it? I'm looking for the one that mounts underneath. If this is the one you've got, let me know a price and shipping to 67439.

    (Don't bother sending me a PM.....I can read them but can't reply as I have a virus on my PC.)

    This sway bar mounts under the 14ff with some perch looking things. I can get a pic for you tomorrow if you wish. How would one go about shipping something like this? It's not like you can really box it up.

    Slap a label on it and check with Fed-ex.

    I have no idea where a fed-ex shipping drop off is around here but i can do that with UPS also couldn't i? I guess i could pull the brackets and package those and ship the bar unwrapped.

    I've got an under/rear setup on a truck I just got to part. Its a C30 with a D70. Don't know what shape it in yet, I need to crawl under it and check it all out.

    Like Chad said....slap a label on it and go.

    I'd tape any brackets to the bar with duct tape real good and just take it as a bare bar to UPS or FedEx and have them put a label on it. Thats how I've shipped leaf springs and received them, too.

    I wanna see a pic first just to make sure the bottom plates are the correct ones. That is, if you don't mind taking one. How's the rust on them?

    I don't know what to offer for it as I've never sold nor bought a sway bar before. How's $25 to start with? Plus the ride, too.

    Wow, I've never seen those brackets before. The only ones I have seen were from a D70HD and attach below the U-bolt plates-they are flat.
    I'm assuming these were off a 14FF SRW or DRW (narrower than a D70HD)

    Exactly what I'm thinking, too. Those are some weird or different brackets than what I've seen.

    How did these brackets mount?

    I saw a set up very similar to that on a Dodge once, the brackets are held onto the axle with the u-bolts.

    Fwiw, the bushing straps and sway bar look a lot like the ones on my dually set up.

    Those must be for the round-bend u-bolts, right? I need brackets for the square-bend with the threads pointing down.

    Yep, regardless of truck brand those are for the up style, round u-bolts.

    As stated, you need one from a GM dually pick up.

    Wes, I've got a pair of the brackets from a D70HD swaybar, but no swaybar. If you end up needing them, let me know.

    Jim, I'll keep you in mind. Can you get a pic of these brackets up? I'm betting they will be slightly larger than the 14FF brackets due to the 70's tube diameter being 4".

    Hell, I may still take them off your hands and see what other brackets I can round up to make them fit. What are you asking for them? And shipping to my zip listed in my avatar, too.
