Default Sway Bar End Links
So I have found basically no information on the current setup for Sway bar that I have on my D-150. Was wondering if anyone else here is more knowledgable on it than I.

What I am trying to do is get my truck past inspection and they require me to replace the sway bar bushings.

Aside from the bushings, when i pulled the old ones off, the old end links were rather rotted and i would like to get new ones.

Problem, I can not find these end links anywhere... they attach from the sway bar ends up to the Strut rods. is this how they come factory or was this some sort of modification to the truck as i can't find the parts at all.

any insight on this?

here is a picture to reference...

could you maybe just pull the sway bar off all together to pass inspection? as far as i know they are not available anywhere other than the junk yards and you may likely never find any. i don't even know if you really need one on a d150. i removed mine off my 93 when the 1 bracket broke. the one on my 81 will be coming off eventually since it has a broken mount.

they said they needed it to be installed if it was from factory with one. anyways, replaced the frame side bushings and told them if they can't find the parts, they can pass it as is. needless to say, it passed inspection. haha.

i would still probably remove it unless you plan on making new clamps to hold it to the strut rods. that way you never have to worry about it again. i kept mine just in case but i doubt i would ever put it back on
