Thumbs up 1970 sway bar ??stock or aftermarket??

Hello all I was hoping to pick your brains on whether or not to replace the stock sway bar. I am going through the front end I bought new lower and upper arms from qa1 and the front coil kit with adjustable shocks also. The rest is all moog but i havent bought a sway bar yet because i dont know if its worth it or not. I have a 400 sbc with a saginaw 3 speed. Im sure many folks have made a sway bar switch and would love to know how they liked their setups. Thanks again all

As a general rule, the thicker the front bar the better. With your set up, go with the same size stock bar that came with the big block car and you should be fine.
I dont think the hollow bars save enough weight to make them worth the premium price.

Re: 1970 sway bar ??stock or aftermarket??

Only the Z28 came with a 1" front sway Bar - I believe the standard dia was 7/8" and that includes the SS and BBC models.

I can not say that the 1" front sway bar could not be ordered as an option on any model.

In this context it was possible to order a 6 Cyl RS decorative option and specify the 1" front Sway Bar with a Muncie, 12 Bolt Posi and U14 Guage cluster. Agreed very rare but none the less there out there.

In your case if you want a good Front Sway Bar look for a Moog 1"r and use a Teflon connector.
