Sway Bar

I own a '63 Monterey . I would like to install a larger front sway bar and no after market company offers one. I have adapted sway bars from one make of car to another in the past. I am wondering if someone out there has adapted one on to a full size ford and if so what worked for you. If I can't find one that will work I am considering one for a circle track race car such as on speedway motors web site. It would be nice to have a little less body roll. Also I know one can change the instant center (I think that is the right term) on an early mustangs by changing the location of the upper control arm. Is this possable on full size ford and has any one done it?

Re: Sway Bar

Hi, I just saw a front swaybar on ebay the other day and it was made by some manufacturer in the US and damned, I can't find it, (maybe bids closed on it) but it was made special for the 63-64 full size Fords and Mercs, and the price was reasonable too. The size was one inch in dia. and kit was complete with the bushings and end links. One other recourse is to try locating an old Merc or Ford station wagon, now I'm not sure but I've heard they have the heavier sway bar.
I just replaced the old worn out bushings on my 63 Galaxie and that sure made a big difference even with the stock size bar. But I would try ebay again. I'm sure there is a demand for the heavier size. Those bars are all the same shape for the full size Mercs and Fords of that year. Also try asking the director of our Galaxie club. director@galaxieclub.com

Re: Sway Bar

Hello again, there is a one inch (1") sway bar (stabilizer bar) on ebay now, little over 14 hours left from time I posted this.
Go to ebay parts and accessories and then type in 1963 Ford.
