I'm looking for a front stabilizer bar set-up for my 60 Fireflite. I have been offered one, but the price is a bit salty for my budget.

I've been looking at some of the aftermarket offerings, and while no one lists a direct fit unit, Addco does offer a set-up for 63-73 full size cars, part #862. I've looked at the photos, and what little information I could find, and it appears this bar is mounted and configured very similar to what I see in my parts book for my car.

Since I'm not concerned with originality - function is the keyword here - I'm considering trying it. Has anyone else here used/attempted to use an aftermarket set-up, in particular this one?

I'm not sure how the front links attach on the later C-bodies. From the picture, they look to be horizontal? Here is the old thread on them. Most of them made custom bars, and one person suggested using a bar from a late ('71-up) B-body. But I didn't really see any follow through on that.
