I also have a sheet faxed to me by Phil Payne ages ago, showing the
rear stabilizer bar on the european '92 100Q.  In both Europe and the
states, the '92 100 was a Type C4.  Perhaps the US only saw the rear
stabilizer in the S-models?  I dunno.  Would be cool if a rear
stabilizer arm was as easy as a trip to your local junkyard.


Second image is a closer-up snap of the parts list I think.

To be honest, I never bothered to look at it further, mostly because
I didn't understand any of it.

What were costs like for swapping to the V8 front bar, and what else
needs to be changed?  I would imagine at least a few bushings would
need to be swapped.
