front sway bar

Post by pila on Tue Apr 25, 2017 10:42 pm

Is there a bigger than the stock 7/8" sway bar on other GM cars, to fit my '75 Elco, and my '74 Malibu ?? I suspect the even a 1 1/8" would be better than the small diameter stock piece..
Or, should I just get a new one ? Thought about a 1 1/4" bar also..

Second gen Camaro 70-81 and 2nd gen 70-81 Firebird both used an 1 1/4" sway bar. They came on the Z28 and Trans Am with the WS6 suspension package. I use that on my 75 Malibu.

The z28 came with 1 1/8" and the trans am way came with 1 1/4" bars from what I've seen. Either will work.

Thanks for correcting me joe. I was always under the impression that the Z28 came with the 1 1/4" sway bar. I guess I learned something new today.  

Pila, I am very satisfied with my upgrade indeed. Very Happy

No problem at all. I'm not looking to correct anyone. Just posting up things I've come upon over the years. My buddy had a Z28 and we happened to measure it years ago and it matched my chevelle bar.

I like to be as correct as possible with things Joe. The one thing that I dislike are people that give incorrect information. If I ever say something that's not correct, feel free to tell me so. I won't take offence to it.

How's the build going?
