'67 Chevy Rear Sway Bar

I bought a rear sway bar for the '67. I foolishly assumed there would be information in the GM Assembly Manual.

Does anyone have a schematic for the location/dimensions of the holes in the trailing arms?

Thanks.

I don't have a schematic to help you out, I have installed one on a GM with no holes in the trailing arms, I centered it under the axle tubes. Worked good, never had any issues with it. ???

Thanks, 1. Good tip about alignment. A friend of mine mounted his too far forward and it looks...well...

When installing it, make sure taht you put spacers in the trailing arms as not to colapse them when tightening the bolts. Boxing the trailing arms is another good idea.

Yes, I read somewhere some guys were using 1/2" galvanized pipe inside the arms with success. There's also a reinforcement bar between the sway bar and the trailing arm that I'll have to fab. Trying to find the original hardware is next to impossible.
