It's raining cats and dogs outside, my wife isn't here to redirect my attention, and it's got me thinking. How hard is it to make an adjustable sway bar for my Spyder.
I have this idea and would like some feedback from those that might know. Here are a couple of drawings that should give one the idea.
I can fabricate the aluminum arm and mounting brackets.
Getting a machine shop to fabricate the sway bar and mill the ends square would be the hardest part. Of course there are a few questions tumbling about in my head.
What kind of steel should be used for the bar?
What size bar should it be with the lever being around 5 1/2" long?
Is it even a good idea to drill 3 holes in a suspension member to attach the bracket? I thought long and hard, and this is the only place that made sense.
Is a sway bar on a Spyder even necessary? and what do you do out back? A camber compensator won't work on a Rancho tranny. I was thinking limit straps. I really don't want to fabricate a Z bar too.
It's still raining out, the car is on blocks waiting on some new wheels. What's a guy to do?
