Yes, I believe so.  When I was in my teens, I used to go to Lions on the weekends as a spectator and Doug Thorly (sp?) was running a really hot Chevy.  I'm not really sure where his original shop was.  I do know that in 2004 he was located in Anaheim, just North of the 91 Freeway at Brookhurst.  That was where I had my system installed.

Had the same problem with an Adcco sway bar that installs just like a stock but slightly larger. Called addco and they sent me two thin split collars that I installed on the very ends of each side. Seems to have solved the problem as they haven't moved since. Would think you'd be able to find similar collar at most hardware stores.

Just a note. One seller tells me that their product requires 15 inch steel wheels, but you can use a 14 inch  aluminum mag wheel for disc brakes with their kit.

They are the rear ones. I had them removed on my bumper when I re-chromed it so it would match my front. They are in excellent shape with good chrome. I've attached a couple of photos.

 Raven Rider:

I had them done by Doug Thorly's shop in Anaheim back in 2004.  This was before he moved to Riverside and ultimately sold his business.  I'm still running the Flowmaster mufflers they installed underneath the rear seat.  The headers and exhaust system were all ceramic coated when installed and other than replacing the electric exhaust cutouts a couple of times because the car sat too low originally they are the same now.  However while the car is apart at this time I decided to have the Tri-Y headers themselves re-ceramic coated both inside and out and have them polished.  I think they turned out pretty good.

I am waiting for an Alburquerqe guy to call me back on pricing for alot of rear end mods. One of them is a disc brake conversion that he designed using a Gm style caliper. Available with and without parking brake, but our e-cables will require lengthening to work. The parking brake is within the caliper, and is not the mini-drum type. I asked to make sure there would be no fitment problems within my new 15" wheels, and he replied that he designed the setup to fit inside 14" rims.
I'd call and get some specifics....and buy them. You can be my guinea pig!!
Only down side(for me) is they are not bolt on, and the bracket has to be welded on after the rear end is in the car, so your welding has to be good enough to weld 1/4 plate to 5/16.
this is his craigslist ad that Sandiaman posted the link to:
