Hi everyone, I bought a '70 Challenger last November. This car is JH27G0B. So its an original 318. There is currently a 318 in the car (don't know if it is original yet). The car has a rear anti-sway bar, but no front one.I bought a '71 stock front anti-sway bar with links and frame brackets. I noticed my lower control arms have ears to mount the sway bar links. So, I'm thinking easy install.Well, my K-frame is different than the stock 318 k-frame. Also, the lower control armears are outside the struts, so the stock sway bar is too short. See pics. Can anyone tell me what I have?The pic with a front sway bar is not my car, just an example. Thanks, Jim
You have some mis-matched parts. The control arms are off 68-69 B-body that used a wider set to the sway bar. The sway bar for the E bodies was narrowed to allow for full turn radius with the disc brake calipers available for that year. Several ways to go here. Find the 70 up control arms and relace them so your new sway bar will work. I think I would go this way. Make sure you replace the inner control arm bushings as these are usually bad. You could find the 68-69 B-body sway bar and go that way. Since you have drum brakes I think it will work but not my first choice.
Thanks. I think the k-frame and lower control arms are both late '60's B-Body. I bought a replacement k-frame that should be correct for 1970 e-body, now I need to find the e-body lower control arms that have sway bar tabs.
