The rod has oppositely threaded hex-stock ends to facilitate easy length
adjustment. I had fun making a few turned, clearance/spacer bushings that
are shown inserted into the spherical bearing sections.
Looking at the body-mounted bracket, you can see that I provided for possible
future suspension changes that might change the ride height and thus the
mounting height of the bar. The bar sits parallel with the road and as low
as feasible when the car is on the ground and loaded.
The other fabricated part is a backing plate that fits inside the luggage
area. The big hole in it lets it dodge an embossment in the floor of the
luggage area. The rear axle, in case you're curious, is a narrowed Ford 8.8
