Does adding a rear sway bar make much difference to the ride in a '37-'38 Chevy with parallel leaf springs?

  • I have never built a street rod with a sway bar.
    Been over the Blue Ridge Mountains many times.
    I do drive BELOW the speed limit.
    If you are a fast driver around many curves = sway bar.

  • I agree with Bill. The bar helps cornering but the ride really does not change. Thanks for posting

  • I've got a front and rear sway bar in my '33 Ford coupe with Posie's parallel leafs
    and I don't notice any rough ride, but it does corner much better.
