S-10 sway bar in a 1st Gen Nova

I just completed installing a S-10 Blazer sway bar of unknown year in my 63 that has a 2 wheel drive S-10 rear end already installed. I got a friend to build the mounts out of some scrap plate.The link ends are from the local autoparts store and are for a front sway bar that were shortened and welded to the factory links that came on the bar.I believe that this bar would probably work with a stock rear end also. I mounted the bar to the rear and then built the mounts to reach out far enough from the frame so that they were where the links would hook up to them and not bind.Please note that these bars are usually found under 4 door BlazersI forgot to mention that the bar must be the one that is about 28 in wide at the the points where the bar links are to attach it to the frame.The one that is 31 in wide will not fit.

The back end lays really flat when you pitch it in a corner.
