1968 Mustang Sway Bars
1968 Mustang Sway Bars
A sway bar or set of sway bars makes a great first step into the world of upgrading your Mustang’s suspension. Sway bars, or anti-roll bars as they are also referred to, help to transfer load and torsion from one side of your car’s suspension to the other. The factory 1968 Mustang sway bars are fairly small, but you can replace them easily with a stiffer set to improve steering response and handling. This is an easy to perform upgrade that will help you dial in your car’s handling for exactly the feel you desire, and best of all you don’t have to spend a large amount of money to do it.

Improve HandlingAs with many suspension components, the different 1968 Mustang sway bars on the market come as a result of the different factory sway bar specifications for cars of various trim levels. If you’ve installed a heavier motor in your car or it’s riding on shocks and springs that use a firmer tune, you’ll want to select a thicker set of sway bars. If you’re looking for a solution that will work well with you car’s factory suspension, a thinner aftermarket sway bar is probably a good idea. Here are a few good things to keep in mind when selecting a pair of 1968 Mustang sway bars:
• Match front to rear: As a general rule, a stiffer front suspension will provide the best performance when matched with a stiffer rear suspension and vice versa. If your choice of front sway bar is extremely stiff and you don’t have an upgraded sway bar in the rear of your car, the end result might be a suspension that feels disorganized or sloppy.
• Keep it in the family: If you install a Scott Drake 1968 Mustang sway bar in the front of your car, we recommend that you install a product from the same manufacturer in the rear. Manufacturers design their components to work together, so installing two products from the same tuner ensures that you’ll experience the best performance you can get from those parts working cooperatively.
• Check your end links: The end links on your car provide mounting points for your sway bars. Small parts like end links endure major loads, and often times go unchecked for years. If the end links on your car are worn down, pick up a new set from CJ Pony Parts and make the replacement when you swap in your new set of sway bars.
