Default 700/900 Wagon vs Sedan - IPD sway bars

On IPD the kits are listed as different depending on wagon or sedan but the bars are 25mm front/rear regardless. I have a sedan and wagon, but I want a big upgrade for my wagon more than anything, however the sedan ones are cheaper. I have never noticed any mechanical difference when spending time underneath them and indeed I have various "wagon parts" on my sedan just because spare and better condition than what came off it.

Why are they listed differently? What have I missed here???

Wagon kit has rear sway bar mounting hardware because often wagons don't have rear sway bar. That's the difference. A bit pricey pieces of steel you can get from a donor and a couple of bolts.

Exactly. If your wagon already has a factory rear sway bar, just order the sedan set.

Thank you so much for that! I didn't know no wagons had bars! I can easily fab up brackets for that, all good, and I think I might already have bars anyway, so no worries. :-) /thread.

My early 960 did NOT have a rear bar so I just ordered the wagon kit for it :-)

24mm (92-94 960 sedan) front. 19mm (1987 760 Turbo sedan) rear for my 88 760 Turbo wagon.

And today it arrived - it weighs an imperial 'ton' none of these silly metric tonnes in sight.
