    It looks like the 89 is the most desirable from the chart, but what are the Mk viii stock sizes. I also understand that some Cougars had a good bar too. http://www.lincolnsonline.com/tech/00134.html

    Really, I'd just go out there and look for anything that's solid rather than hollow. You'll be pleased by the difference.

    The Addco bars are the easy way to get the "sure thing." but plenty have gone the direction in which you are looking.

    The stock mark8 was 7/8' hollow. Maybe 1" but I am pretty sure it was 7/8". Yes, 7/8" hollow. Basically it was nothing.
