I cut the brackets from the donor subframe (same one that the sway 
bar came from).  Used stock bushings (no money @ that time).
Welded the brackets onto the 4kq subframe.  Attaching the bar to the 
control arms was another story.  There I had to fabricate brackets 
and modify the control arm to allow for them to fit.  
It's hard to explain that one.  You have to use your own judgement 
and imagination.
