I put a Hellwig on this spring. Since I already had the cap tabs for dual shocks, I just put some different links in and used those instead.

For a product that is made to fit a rare and long out of production vehicle?
There were less than a quarter of a million Broncos made from 1966 through 1977 and how many of them still survive?

Small market + high quality product = NOT cheap.

If you search around you will see they are also significantly less quality and most who have them are NOT happy. I'm still waiting on my Hellwig now. Apparently back-ordered?

Hellwig sells two different sway bars for Broncos, their street bar and an off-road bar with disconnect links which is more expensive than the street bar.

OK another question, If I went with the Hellwig front and then used the cheaper Addco would there be an advantage. They say that swaybars should be put on front & back? Is that true?

I installed both the Addco and hated the way they mounted. The front hung down really low under the front axle and it got hung up on stuff to easy. The rear hit the bottom of the body when it flexed. I broke the front u-bolt mounts twice and finally just took them both off. If you have a street only Bronco they may be OK but not great.

Bill I just put duffs long arms on my 78 and have deavers super flex coils. Iím in the same boat need something to give me back some street manners but maintain the flex I just gained.

Give Krawlers Edge a call. The price I got was much less than the link posted.

Is it correct that this sway bar won't work with the duff long travel front shock hoops?
