There really isn't a rear strut bar. There's really no way to install one. Unless you remove the studs and put your own bolts in and make a bar.

It would just be a rear sway bar. But you can DIY one by putting a bar across the back inside of your trunk. I saw it on YouTube. Search poormanmods and there's all kinds of crazy diy stuff these guys did.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I wasn't thinking about no strut towers in the rear on the 6. I must have been thinking about my 98 GP at the time.

I'm sure there's a way to fab and install a rear tower bar. A larger rear sway bar will make a huge difference in cornering for our cars. It's too bad you can't even swap the rear endlinks for adjustable ones.

One of the vendors over on g6p is going to start trying to design and fabricate a larger rear sway bar I think. There was an interest thread started I think. I believe it was racingline who also makes the STB for under the hood. As far as rear interchangeable parts idk of any the only front strut bar which you can get off a Malibu maxx. It's just a gm performance strut tower "brace". It's actually what I have.

How does the strut bar from the Malibu maxx fit? Does it work as well? Does it jack up the hood liner?
