Are There Any Sway Bar Options For My 86 Ea82 Wagon?

Yes, there are! You will need to mount the brackets for them (Either weld them on or install a set of control arms that already have them). Any EA82T or XT6 will have bars that will be upgrades front and rear. Do a search for a spring chart and you can see which car has the most desierable set.

More specifically, instead of EA82T, look for an RX. They all had them as far as I know, the rest of the EA82T lineup is kinda iffy.

Thanks to a board member here.. I have 20mm front and rear on my 87 wagon.. It kicks ass :)

Dunno about size difference, but I do know that not every XTT I have seen came with a rear bar.

My wagon came with one.. Ony one I have ever seen from the factory like that. But it was a wimpy little 15mm

Hondasuck's turbowagon had a stock rear swaybar but yes, it was wimpy. Now the 5-lug and those bigger swaybars made it handle on rails:headbang:

My GL-10 Parts wagon had an 18mm rear bar on it (entire rear subframe now on my DL wagon)..think that might have been related to it having air suspension..

That could be, mine was an original air suspension car as well
