Fullmonte60,
I bought a 2012 Express and it didn't have a rear sway bar either. What size bar did you go with 16MM, 18MM or 20MM and do you have the part number for the bar and bushings?

Thanks in advance.

hey- sorry for the delay. the bar was 68061786-AA and the bushings were 68048854-AA. not sure of the mm size. looks pretty thin but it helped quite a bit...lol. good luck with yours.

Thanks for the reply it's probably the 16MM diameter bar which is what the factory puts on the 2WD Reg Cabs....when they do install them.

Tighten the stabilizer bar retainer bolts (3) to 50 N·m (37 ft. lbs.).Tighten stabilizer link lower nuts (2) to 107 N·m (79 ft. lbs.).

Jorde, Thanks for the torque specs.

I'll be installing the rear bar soon since it got shipped yesterday from mopar-wholesale.com. I can't figure why Dodge didn't install it on the Express when they had it on the 2012 Reg Cab ST short bed models 4x2 w/ V6's that were on the dealers lot.

I installed the 16MM rear swaybar tonight, it's the same part number as yours and is what comes on a
4x2 Reg Cab Short Bed provided the factory actually installs one. Also I replaced the front upper swaybar
link rubber bushings with Red urethane bushings from Autozone. It helps the front bar react better and
is a cheap $12.99 mod. I must say that the trucks handling has realy improved now.
