      I discovered one anti windup bar missing and have one, Usually they come in pairs both sides. Does this effect the drivability on the road vs off road? Should I delete one or two of the anti windup bars?

      And about coils. I installed one accell coil and my truck did not performed. So I returned the coil for a new one thinking maybe the coil was defective. Is it okay to mis match the coils, would this make a difference? I want to try one out to see difference to have two new coil packs

      If you don't have a misfire the new coils won't help.

      You either have enough spark for combustion... Or you don't.

      I'm pretty sure if you have the 5.0 there was only one Anti windup bar installed on the rear axle from the factory but the 5.0 guys can chime in on this one.

      I do not know how to post pictures when I reply for this forum. I just got a new anti windup bar for the driver side. I can’t use it right away, I will need brackets and bolts. In addition, I think driver side anti wind up bar was deleted because a brake line is in the way of the front bracket holes slightly If anyone knows if it is okay to bend or move the line out of the way to install the front bracket?

      You have a '94 with anti-windup bars? Are you lifted really high, or running lots of power? I'd like to see your setup

      Apparently I have not updated the forum here since the 94 manual. Since then I’ve gone through that and a 2000 and now a 99 and it is lifted, 5.0L. The question now should I run new lines or move out of the way of the front bracket holes?

      Or just leave the set up with just one anti windup bar on the passenger side?

      The driver side bracket has provision to hold the ebrake cable. It pulls it away from the frame a bit, there is room for both the bolts and cable.

      I do not know how to send pictures on this forum? I've tried with computer and phone. I just got out today to a junk yard, a front bracket and just need to find the rear bracket bolts for the anti windup bar. I'm looking at the front bracket and the hole for the parking brake, seems I may have to take apart and put back together to fit into the hole. The existing bracket seems much simpler with no bolt slot for the anti windup bar on the driver side. Wondering now once I install the windup bar, for off road duty, would it be in the way or would I better benefit more the direction for better handling. If not, optionally, I could delete both sides for the anti windup bar. This situation can ;be an opinionated decision for stock repairs and development and or custom preference
