It's been mentioned several times, but the sedan bar is 12mm, the coupe is 15mm. The coupe bar is a direct bolt-in, mounting points are identical and everything.

Just as an aside....coupe bar is 15 mm where the Vigor is 15.9mm (16mm pretty much lol)...

Either way you'll get improvement

Not exactly. I was at the junk yard today and the coupe sway bar is considerably wider than the sedan's (90 2dr vs 90 4dr). I couldn't bolt on the coupe bar to the sedan because the coupe's bar is ~1'' inch wider and the subframe mounting points on the coupe is ~1'' farther apart.
The mounts themselves are identical.

I got a Coupe bar on my '89 sedan. There's no doubt it was a snug fit however it did go on.

Well make sure you have some persuasive tools with you. I won't deny the Coupe bar is too wide to fit on the sedan, however it is possible.
I guess I will take some pictures and see how it is holding up after 6 months.

I look forward to any updates though Gabe.
