Front Swaybar
« on: April 25, 2010, 12:07:50 PM »
I have just noticed that my early 67 six cylinder car has no front sway bar fitted. From what I can see of the bounting bracket holes in the subframe have never had a bolt fitted to them. Is this a common thing?

Thanks
Al

I thought that all Camaro's came from the factory with a front swaybar...
but I'm no expert... still learning.

The real experts will chime in.

Yes, I have noticed this before.  I assume that your car is an L22 by your user name?

Chuck's real early 08D L22 (250) also doesn't have a sway bar.

What's the build dates of your cars?

My car is 02A and is a LA built car. I have since purchased a 6cyl Convertible that is 03C and it has a sway bar.

The bushingsn
 are rotting on the front sway bar of my 68.
What size sway bar and brand is best for replacement of the entire thing.

Thanks

So, sorting things like I always do.....
     plant eng swaybar
08D LOS 250  no
02A LOS 250  no
03C               yes
04A        250  yes

I have to say this is surprising. GM said only the 230 didn't have the swaybar in 67.

The swaybar bushings are readily available from most suppliers in rubber (original) and urethane.

Good point. I tend to think it didn't depend on body type, but I have no idea. Adding that into the mix shows we really need more data. :)
      plant eng      swaybar
08D  LOS 250 cpe  no
02A  LOS 250        no
03C               cvt  yes
04A  NOR 250 cvt  yes
