Default 41 pickup sway bar

So I have a complete stock sway bar off a 41 sedan . My 41 pickup has the correct mounting holes in the frame but nothing on the axle. I have the yoke like piece on the ends of the sway bar but not sure what I need to find for the axle. This looks like it should be possible with the right parts. Is it or do I have to make something? Thanks , Tim

41 car sway bars are slightly longer than the 40 sway bar that fits your truck-remember you 41 truck has the same frame as a 40 car. you need the axle perch bolts

Look thru this thread and you will see the 1940/41 design. Is this the style you have?
It looks like what Alan posted. You need the correct perch bolts also. Ebay has 2 sway bars for sale right now.

Check with C&G also.

Removing your old rusty perch bolts can be difficult but, don't go crazy heating and beating on them with a hammer. You don't want to bend your axle.

I'm at work right now so I can't do a stare and compare but the bar and hardware look the same to me . So it looks like I'm in the market for so perch bolts. Is that pivot shaft in the perch bolt the same as a shackle bolt? Thanks, Tim

Perch bolts can be very difficult to remove. Here is a link to a thread on the H.A.M.B. where someone made a tool to pull them out, which works better than the old "heat and bash" method. If you are already aware of this, you can ignore this post, but it can save a lot of work and maybe a few spring perches in the process.

Tim,I replaced a bad perch pivot shaft/bushing on my '41 sedan with a 2" front shackle shaft/bushing. They were identical and work great. Be aware they fit quite tightly and care must be taken to remove and install without damage.
