Do people add rear sway bars to the back of their 55’s. I have one I have added on the front and it makes a lot of difference. Thought maybe one might be useful on the rear also.

It depends on the type of driving you plan on doing. If you just plan on street and highway cruising it’s probably unnecessary and you may not realize any difference (improvement).

I put front and rear both on my '57. They both offered improvement, but the front was certainly more effective than the rear.

I removed the rear anti sway because I didn't notice any significant improvement in handling.
Also created issues with exhaust clearance when the body was lowered. Makes everything look cluttered back there in my opinion.
