Sway bar help

What is a good way to go with sway bars on our cars. I have a 67 getting a LS3/6L80 and want to upgrade my stock sway bars. Some have said they are not that neccesary, but I want the car a little flatter in the turns.

On all other cars I have owned front and rear bars help dramatically.

Any suggestions?

No luck David. As you can see from the deleted posts, I've been trying. Any hints?

Re: Sway bar help

It's one of the very few things I know about computers, Fred.

Go to your website

Click on the video to get it started running

Once the video is running, DOUBLE click on it
(This will take you to the you tube site)

Once there, right click on the address bar at the top to highlight it blue.

Choose "copy" from the drop down.

Come back to Team Camaro, and in a response box, right click and choose "paste"

Re: Sway bar help

Al, what I did was just choose properties after right clicking on my web site video, highlight, copy and paste here. Now to make more videos! Oh no, wait. My engine is torn down on the stand waiting for the cam. Gotta call Lunati,,,, again!
Oh no! I did it your way Al. I'm so confused!

You'll be much happier with your ride quality if you upgrade your sway bars. We did a project with Dan and Peggy's drop top. It started out as a cruiser and the owner basically just wanted to make it drive a little nicer. After a Hotchkis TVS he ended up taking it in the GoodGuys autocross and loving it. Now Super Chevy is using his car in their ads for the Super Chevy Show autocross!
