Finally getting my dirt track Camaro ready and realized there's no front
sway bar on it (used race car, missing some parts...) - I'm going to
yank the one from my poor 80 project car - it should bolt up and I got
new end links... but I'm curious how much softer the Camaro bar would

they made a good number of different size, and spring rate bars. Usually the
larger the bar the higher the rate. A 76 V8 base model probably would have
had a small, softer rate bar. Where as a WS6 T/A would have a large high
