51 Commodore suspension upgrades?

Just started work on my new toy.  It needed everything in the brake system.  It still has the original shocks & sway bar links.  Everything went fine until I broke the rear brake line at the master cylinder.

Does anyone know of a larger sway bar that will fit?

Is there a rear sway bar that will work?

Any suggestions on shocks?

    Give Dale Cooper (Hudsonmotorcars.com) a call for the front sway bar.  He has a wait list for the next shipment.

    Back in 1990 I adapted a 1 1/8" sway bar from a Jeep on to my 52 Wasp. What a difference!

    Can you tell me what Jeep your bar came from?

    1990 Cherokee. It's a little too narrow where the end links mount. I heated it up, about 4-5 inches from each end and bent it outward then let it cool on its own. I used the factory, 3/4" bar as a guide. I have done a couple of them over the years. A used one from a salvage yard is less than $30.
