I'm trying to find an ADDCO front and rear sway bar kit for my 79. In the Jeg's catalog and on their website I can't find any listings. Will the bars for a 70-81 Camaro fit? Also would like opinions on size. I'm considering 1 1/4" front and 1" rear. Any other suggestions or info on what others are using will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Using ADDCO in my 72 and happy with it. Just make sure the front one is bigger than the rear one.

I have a 1 1/4" (front) off of a Trans Am that I got out of a junk yard. The rear I got from Year One. Classic Industries has it too.

Thanks for the helpful responses. Does anyone know if a rear bar from a first gen Camaro will fit?

4GOTTEN1, Which rear bar did you use? I don't see 4th gen listings in either Year One or Classic.

Philip, thank you for the offer but I'm interested in a bolt on rear bar for now.

I missed it the first time I looked. Classic Industries does have front and rear bars. I ordered 1 1/8" front (part # FSB883) and 3/4" rear (part # RSB226). I'll update after I install them.

dlezama...you mentioned using #226 in your 77. Did you have any installation problems?

Thanks,
Mike

Didnt install it, was doing an OEM resto and wanted the original type bar. Instructions looked simple though. I still have it, but dont offer it for sale as shipping from Mexico to the US is too expensive.

Just thought I'd provide an update. I finished installing the front and rear sway bars in my 79. Installation was straightforward, had no real issues. I did a test drive after putting in the front bar. There was a very noticeable handling improvement, a lot less body lean and felt smoother and more stable. I didn't notice much more of a difference after the rear bar was in. I'd definitely recommend at least a front sway bar upgrade as simple, effective and good value for the money.

My car still has the stock exhaust, single inlet on the passenger side, single outlet behind the left rear wheel. There were no interference issues at all.
