hey guys,
Getting ready to rebuild my suspension and brakes on my 89 G10.
It has 198,000 miles on it and its time.... smile I see the holes on the lower control arms and frame for a factor sway bar but the van has no front sway bar at all. Did these vans have them as an option or maybe they just came on g20s and g30s? what about rear sway bars?
I want to add them as my van is a keeper and I think they will help out the handling. Anybody tried the aftermarket ones?

yeah. I heard that the g series vans and the C series trucks share the same suspension but I heard that the G vans have a wider track than the C trucks.
I'm going to be running the tubular upper and lower control arms and wilwood 4 wheel disc. Trying to get info on these G vans is a pain in the Butt. I know the arms are the same as C10 and the same for the brakes but wildwood could not give me an answer. I had to figure that out by dimensions.
thanks !

Went to the pick and pull this morning. The first G20 I looked at had a nice front sway bar. Even the bushings were good ! Brackets and all.... 35 bucks... love these vans !
