1968 Mustang Sway Bar

Hey guys,
I have a '68 with a 200 straight six cylinder

I need to replace 2 lower ball joints and 1 upper ball joint.

Also, I need to replace the sway bar bushings and end links...

My question is, should I upgrade the sway bar? What effect would this have on my ride with only a straight 6?

I'm planning on using this for street driving only, so I'm not looking for hard core racing stuff (obviously not with the 200 in it)

If you are going to replace it anyways going bigger on the sway bar is only better. It will just help body roll. I have beefy front and rear sway bars on my 65 and it corners nice. It's also a dd. Coils and shocks and springs also help alot though too. I just hate a car that sways on corners. I like them to stick to the ground. Also you might want to replace all front end bushing and all ball joints while it's apart if it has not been done in a while. It'll save you tons of labor in the end. Ooo and try to upgrade to poly on the bushings they last so much longer

Get the 1.25" and avoid the 1.5" sway bar. Bigger is not always better. Look up the Shelby 1" drop, it's the best$0.00 you can spend.

I went with the 1" sway bar for a small block

And I would like to drop the coil springs, but I just replaced them to stock a month ago... I should have done my research

You can go with the 1.5 in the front as long as you go with a smaller size in the rear, and it will ride great

I have the Shelby drop also on my 65 vert and if you want to fit a 245 you have to roll the fenders, but it does give it a nice stsnce
