Look through the write ups,

http://rivperformance.editboard.com/t1376-suspension-handling-write-up-index

I have the front and rear Addco bars. Expensive, yes, but worth it. I believe there are Caddy STS or Aurora bars that work. You will find the info in the write ups. The front strut tower brace makes a noticeable difference as well.

Well, I read through the sway bar thread and there is no definitive answer whether STS bars fit a 96. I do not want to buy Addcos. I can get sway bars for $30 at my salvage yard. It seems that most information pertains to 1998-99 Rivieras and not earlier ones. Maybe the Aurora forum will have the answer.

First page of STS bar write-up, member gives an EXACT answer to this question and another member with '96 Riv buys the STS bar and installs it!

Will check it out. I am looking to do both front and rear. There is at least one STS and several Park Aves in the yard so I may have a few to choose from. Thank you.
