Just installed the Hotchkis rear swaybar on my 95 RMW. Chose the SSM perf. lwr control arms, Super nice quality and they are a perfect bolt on fit.
Can´t wait to testdrive....

If you guys are considering this job... my advise is GO FOR IT. Big difference in handling. Rock steady driving highway and even when doing those shaper curves at lower speeds.
Can't tell if it's only the swaybar, the new control arms or the combo. My bet is both are pretty important. The boxed SSM control arms with poly bushings is a massive upgrade over the stock open flexible ones with plain rubber bushings, and the Hotchkis swaybar is just impressive.
Will also do the front swaybar upgrade to Hotchkis as this result is just amazing without sacrificing comfort.

Klaus thanks for sharing
can you tell me the part numbers of what you used?
Swaybar:
Control Arms:

did you have to drill? or did you use holes in the control arms ?
Did you have to buy hardware?

Hi guys
The rear sway bar is Hotchkis # 2206R
The control arms are Southside machine Performance # B2LP. You can find them here:
https://southsidemachineperformance.com/shop/ols/products/b2lp-lower-control-arms-gm-b-body-1971-1977-with-poly-lower-bushings
Give them a call to verify you need stock replacement arms for wagon.
Only hardware needed is the 4 bolts to attach the sway bar to the arms. Can't recall the exact size, but you can get these from your local machine shop.
Takes a good hour to install, depending on how how willing your old control arm bolts will let go...:-)

As said...go for it, it really is a major improvement.
Klaus
