Re: Rams Horn Bolts

Re: Rear sway bar

Aside from your question regarding how to upload a pix of a "sway bar" you have, I wonder what is the point of wanting a "sway bar" on the rear of a '55 Ford?

I have a '40 steering gear box in my '36. When I installed the '40 box in 1954-55 I used the '36 pitman arm, it hung down to low so I switched to a '40 arm. The part number on the arm in my car is...
