EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT HAVING A SWAY BAR OR NOT. IS IT FRONT OR REAR THEY TALK ABOUT AND IN MY 79 CUTLASS SHOULD I REMOVE ONE OR NOT? THANKS IN ADVANCE

I had bars at both ends last year. This year I'm ditching the rear but keeping the front.

Last year I got the standard "get rid of them" and "old bars aren't consistant" and "you'll never run with it". I got that from chassis builders, to other stock racers, to late model guys... everyone. BUT, after I went out and ran, they all... and I mean all... said "Don't you dare take those things off".

Soo... it depends on the track and how you drive. The faster, more banked and harder the track, the more the bar will help. On flat, short, tight turned tracks I'd at least try it with and without. Although, I'd still probably leave the front with an adjuster bolt on the left side to control body roll.

We ran cruisers so maybe not quite the same speed, but..... We always went out right after the water truck and with front and rear sway bars there wasn't a better handling car on the track. 11 feature wins and track champ. Never the fastest car on the track just handled best.
