    Does anyone know of a factory rear sway bar that bolts right up on a 2wd Blazer with the factory 12 bolt rearend? I also want to install a posi? I thought about looking for a Suburban rearend with the factory swaybar and limited slip gears, will it work in my 81 C5?

    I thought a Suburban rear and swaybar would work, but I need to know what years and if they were trailing specials or something along those lines so I can find one.

    make sure you measure the spring perches and 3/4 ton 2wd came with a rear sway bar as an option!

    Been looking under alot of GM vehicles lately to find a swaybar that will work. Looks like a rear swaybar off a 454 SS pickup might work. Haven't been able to find a 73-91 Suburban with a rear sway bar yet. Stay tuned, I need to take some measurements.
