Sedan Drivers:

I'm going to have to source a front sway bar for my '67 Super project. Am I correct in thinking that any 105 or 115 series sway bar will fit, or is there something unique about the bar for the sedan? If I am correct in my assumption, are some bars from some years more desirable than others? I'm thinking of suitability for street use, primarily.

Thanks,
Bob A.

Any 105/115 front sway bar will fit. Just make sure that you get all the mounting bits/bushings for each respective type of bar.

There are 3 factory styles. Early up to 67, after 67 and late Spider. The latter is the nicest set up, as it is mounted with proper balljoints rather than rubber bushings. All of them are 24mm diameter.

Centerline and IAP sell aftermarket larger bars, which will also fit with no problem. I have a larger Shankle bar on the front of my Super and am happy with it, with stock springs and Konis.

I sourced sway bars and hardware from APE. Then I replaced the bushings, a touch of paint here and there, and couldn't be happier.

I think the set I sourced were out of a GTV. The factory sway bars, with performance springs and Bilsteins work extremely well on my Nuova Super.

Other than different mounting at the A-arm end on the early 105 cars through 1967ish, any 105/115 front bar will fit any other car, and even that mounting can be adapted by changing the spring pan bolt.

I have a sway bar from a Berlina that I don't need. You'd have to assume the bushings need replacing, but I'd be happy to let it go for not a lot of money. Just need to consider shipping from Aust.

Sway Bars

Thanks to you all for the good information. I appreciate the offer, Damo, but I think I'll try APE here in the States first.

Wishing I were in Detroit this weekend,

For what it's worth, I'd suggest following Andrew's instructions and changing your setup so you can install a later sway bar. I had brand new bushings put on my (stock) bar last year, and a couple of weeks ago the bar popped out of the passenger side bushing when I exited a driveway at an angle. I suspect the ball joint is a more durable fitting, and may be easier to maintain over time.
