Installed on my 74 this past winter! Big difference with the 2.5' SL and 31x10.5x15" tires. Drives like a modern day vehicle.

I have been looking at them too. Is it worth the big price tag?

Just looked at prices Holy smokes!!!

Does something like a 3-way adjustable draglink serve the same/similar purpose?

Completely different animal.

Drag link is the link that goes from ps box to the tie rod.

Anti-sway bars reduce sway in corners, by attaching the suspension from one side to the other side, forcing them to act together. This reduces sway. Stiff bar, less sway.

To the frame and to the radius arms.

I am running one on my '73. It did stiffen it up considerably. Do you have any pics of the lower brackets? Mine is one of the early ones and I didn't care for the lower bracket setup and the way it cocked over the spring cups. I opted to make a set of brackets and weld them to the radius arm caps instead. I heard they changed the lower bracket setup to help minimize the issues with the spring cups.

IIRC from past threads the Bronco front sway bar is pretty rare, but can one be found on other old Ford trucks? Iím guessing No because I donít believe the Bronco shared a chassis with any other model?

No, they were specific to the 76/77 Bronco. They do come up for sale from time to time but go for pretty good $.
