Did the 69 SS 396 Nova come from the factory with a front sway bar? If so what was the Dia. and are they avaliable thru any of the restoration companies?

Thanks

Thank you,

any idea where I can get an OEM one or very correct repop? Did the 350ci version have the same thickness?

I will wait for conformation on thickness. Are these avaliable thru OEM channels or do you have to find an aftermarket one. If so what do you recommend?

Wasn't that swaybar 13/16?I just measured one that I have from a 1969 396 car and it is 13/16.

I just went and measure my bars they are both 11/16" these are BB cars and I'm assume they're original.

There are 2 part #'s for 69 one with special performance suspension front and rear and one without, so I read it as all V8's were the same unless you had F41 heavy duty suspension.

3955778 is for all w/special performance front and rear susp

Which options on a 69 SS 396 Nova would you have gotten the F41 suspension? What is the F41 suspension? Why was it avialable? Thanks
