Hey BBODY, apparently the hot ticket is the F-body front bar. It came from the 70-81 F-body with the WS6 suspension only, all others are smaller. It is no longer available from gm but somebody said BMR makes an identical front bar and another company too, but I can't recall who. HTH

Thumbs up

I got mine from a boneyard.
No idea if it was a chevy or a pontiac as the car was really stripped good.
I was wrestling with it for 40 mins and got one side off, then I tried braking off the other side endlink and I just bent it so I was relly screwed as I would not take the bolt out. I did some diggin' in the yard and found a longer and better pipe and finally I broke it off, and removed the bar.
A toolbox full of tools + heavy swaybar + walking which seamed like 1/4 mile to the junkyard office, all of it in Chicago humid weather was not really funny.
Then I had a tought time getting the grime out - a mix of simple green, brake parts cleaner, paint tinners, and more did the trick.
Then the install part came it, a little tought doing it by yourself but boy was it worth it. This is my only suspension mod and I love it. It should have been an optin on the LTZ and standard on the 9c1 package if you ask me.
Look around at boneyards, after you see a couple and stublme upon a fatter one you know you found the gem.
Good luck.

Oh, I think I paid like 60$ for mine, price was a little high but after all that sweat I bit the bullet and decide to get it.
Got the endlinks from Dal.
