The mounts for the rear sway are brackets welded to the trailing arms. But these mounts don't exist at all on cars not equipped with the sway bar. You will need both rear arms to install one.
D/R in itself does not mean it will or will not have one. It's very hazy as to how they were equipped - but mostly they were on Turbo models - just not all of them.

Making your own mounts would be.... dificult. There are rubber bushings in them, and so forth. And you would need welding equipment to put them on.
You could use a die grinder and take the mounts off the other arms and weld them to yours. That's what I've done on my EA81.

if the bolts are seized and rusty that can be annoying, but other than that they come out much quicker and easier than i anticipated.

You could swap in some sway bar control arms, and then chop & weld the bump stop platforms on your old arms .. this would be easier than adding sway bar bracketry to your existing control arms, and you're going to have to find sway bar control arms anyway.
