The swaybar used on the 72-79 Ford midsize car will need the following from your parts car. take both side of these parts pictured.
 
Then take a look at all the parts in grey that hold on the sway bar to the axel. Take all these as well.
 
 
The rubber mounts used for the end links (first photo) are no longer available. But here is the Ford part # for the end link kit. (D4OZ-5A486-A). Sometimes you get lucky and find these on e-bay.

IIRC, I have seen some of the end link to chassis brackets welded in, not just bolted in. This could be on the 77-79 models, I did see where the earlier intermediates(even Marks and T-birds) had the brackets that were bolted to chassis(like as pictured above).

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

Yes the LTD II's had power seats as an option. If you can't find them from an LTD II and want to stay era correct you get them out of a 77-79  ranchero/cougar or t-bird.
