Re: Men of Mopar,,Sway bar question



I agree...Definitely step up the at least the next size torsion bars. My car is a 381 Poly and I put "383" bars in it. It rides great! Also look into HD ~5 leaf rear springs. Those cars are heavy enough that it won't be a harsh ride.

Great time to increase your torsion bar size too - stepping up one size from .88 to .92 dia on my '62 wagon gave it a more compliant and "modern" feel without being too harsh.  Adjustable UCA's will help a lot come alignment time to get positive caster.  I could not get enough positive caster using just the Moog K7039 offset UCA bushings.  You might also consider the adjustable LCA struts.

Good article with specs to hand your alignment shop:

Soon I will be rebuilding the front suspension on my 65 Coronet.
It will be getting stock replacement upper/lower control arms, along with bushings, ball joints,new KYB's, front strut rod bushings and an alignment.
I'm considering a front sway/stabilizer bar hopefully to help control the swaying motion it has when going around tight turns.

Is there anything I should pay attention for, consider before going about it, should I use a particular replacement year,style/model or name brand of sway bar, who has the best price.

Thanks in advance,

Jay Rod.
