Rear Sway Bar ??????

I want to add a rear sway bar to my 69. I have Hotchkis springs all around and front sway bar. Can I use a different sway bar on the rear? If so any recommendations.

I would stick with hotchkis on the rear sway, it will match the front and coils. They make on of the best rear bars out there and there are other minor benefits of their bar compared to others as well.

Let us know if you need a good $$$ on the bar!

Mark - Like MCB mentioned, you're better off to stick with a complete package from a single manufacturer so you know the components are matched. Matt's Classic Bowties offers great customer service and prices.

Mark , I have the TVS system /Kit on my Car . I am very Satisfied with the ride and handling ,the rear bar not only works very well ,but looks killer from the rear view of what other people will see as you cruse down the road ,I didn't mind drilling 1/2 in. holes in my car ,as she was a plain Jane to begin with ,and holes can always be welded ....
Enjoy Happy Motoring

Re: Rear Sway Bar ??????

I've used the Hotchkis 2nd gen bar on two first gens. It is a wider bar & clears the exhaust system better. It attaches to the frame rails instead of the lower seat pan. Some trimming of the frame rail bracket is needed. Hotchkis now sells a crossmember for the first gen bar that strengthens the attachment.
I would stay with a Hotchkis rear bar for the best results.
