    Will 1-1/4 front sway bar from a 70-81 Trans Am fit my 70 Camaro? Also will the rear from a 74-81 Trans Am fit? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Yes, both fit perfectly as both cars are F body and use the same parts. You will most likely have to weld on the upper frame mounts for the rear swaybar is your 70 didn't originally come with a rear swaybar. Most cars that came without a rear swaybar do not have the mounts welded on the frame to install one.

    Yes... They will fit.

    But the rear bar brackets will need to be welded to the frame as there isn't enough frame thickness to hold the bracket bolts solidly.
    (Later Camaros had a plate inside the frame for more thickness.)

    Don't forget the right size bushings

    Yea, I emailed him to be sure he has all of the hardware. $30 for the front and $40 for the rear,hopefully he has the hardware. Will want to buy new bushings most likely.
