Rear Sway Bar Question?

Hi all, need to pick the brains of our astute Impala aficionados?
I'm thinking of installing an F40 style rear sway bar on my 68 Impala Custom Coupe. The originals are like hens teeth, however, there are aftermarket bars that would pass for the real deal. Question? For a diff with 3 trailing arms? Yadda on the bar...or Nadda? Originally the F40-41 suspension particularly the diff had 4 trailing arms, hence the placement of the bar, if one paid for the up grade.
Thanks guys!

The missing control arm is on the top. the sway bar bolts to the two bottom control arms. The missing one shouldn't be an issue with the installation. Only in improving handling. I would add the missing upper control arm to improve your cars stability in turns.
