“H” engine is 1500 single port, if not rebuilt bigger. ’67-68 swing axle had a factory z-bar that looked like a sway bar but worked to keep wheels from tucking in on hard cornering. ’68 irs was autostick trans.

Are you shure that it's a sway bar? You said that it's in back. Sway bars are on the front.


If it's on the back, it maybe a camber compensator. (good)

O.K. i thought it was a sway bar but i guess its not.if they never had one on back...so will it interfeer with my articulation..cause were not going to be hard cornering in it.and one side is in the way when i try too hook the bumber brackets off the top of the shock tower thing..
should i keep it or should i loose it...you tell me...

open a free acct at www.photobucket.com


upload your pics there.

copy and paste the "IMG" line to your posting on any site. the pic appears magically in the posting when you submit the posting.
