Rear sway bar mounting

Post by A_Tame76 on Wed Oct 06, 2010 10:49 pm

Does anyone have any pictures they can send me or post showing how exactly the rear sway bar mounts to the lower control arms? My car never had one from the factory, but I picked a used one up with the...two "U" channels that each have four mounting bolts in them. Any pics sooner the better would be very helpful. Thanks guys.

If the sway bar has the bolt holes in vertical orientation, there should also be a U-bracket that fits inside the LCA for the bar to bolt to.

A_TAME76 see how the bolt holes are offset that is how they go into LCA

well sway bar is in and was a perfect fit with the NIB brackets and the sway bar from the caprice 9C1 police package from mid 90's, if you get new brackets remember to hang onto the 8 self tapping bolts you will need them for the new bracket for the side holes are not threaded and you have to run the bolts in before mounting the brackets to thread them..............


OLD SWAY BAR




NEW SWAY BAR BIG DIFFERENCE

I wish I had a photo looking up at the lower control arm with the sway bar into it. I used to have a few of these pics, but now I cant find them.

yup....makes perfect sense.
I just had my old 350 trans takin outta the car and had a new built up 400 put in. Also took out the 3500 stall and had a 12" 2500 stall in it from a 70 LS-6 car. The 3500 stall had a TON of slip in it and wasn't right for the big block. The old stall worked when I used to have the small block in it. Have a Hurst Pistol grip shifter in it now.

I have an aftermarket front bar...but this rear one is factory. My never had one, so if I can get this one to work on my factory control arms, it should make a big difference. Next year I plan on putting aftermarket upper and lower rear control arms on it.

There might be some "dimples" on the sides of the LCA to give you an idea where to locate the cross bolts for the bracket.

orange if yours doenst have the sway bar provisions in the lower control arms you will have to get ones from yard that do or aftermarket ones that do.....

And Junks yards out there will the 92 chevy caprice COP CAR (has to be from this 91 to 96 I think) and has to be the cop car version, anyways that rear sway bar is a direct bolt up...

And the front from a 70 to 81 Trans Am type of vehicle with the F-41 suspension I forget what they call theres maybe WS-6 package I think that will give you the thick as hell front sway bar

Thanks...thats helpful. Im thinking my control arms dont have the holes there for those "U" channels to line up with and that I might have to drill some and tap them. Unfortunately I dont have my car in my garage now to go look at.

Those pics are very helpful. Thats about how I thought they should look. Now I may have a clearance issue for the sway bar cause the big 3" tailpipes may be hanging down a bit low as they come down from over the axle...we shall see.

I dont know if it matters A_Tame76 but if the caprice type sway bar kinda sits back a little more than the stock one did and also comes together more if you know what I mean
