Here's one on eBay with new bushings.

68-72 chevelle front sway bar

Of course, you can always look in the junkyards. Any 68-72 GM A-body should work. I think the 64-67 will work as well. Just get new bushings to go with it and it should work fine.

Front sway bars from 1964-1972 El Caminos/Chevelles, and all other GM A-bodies. Also sway bars from 1970-1981 Camaros and Firebirds will work as well.

For a rear sway bar I recommend getting a new GM 7/8" rear sway bar from GM - part number 394926. This is $69.32 from www.partszoneonline.com

You'll need to reinforce the lower control arms to use this rear sway bar.

On my '72 I have a 1 1/4" front sway bar from a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula and this 7/8" rear sway bar. It handles very nicely, especially when coupled to my 12.7:1 quick ratio steering box.

No problem, any time ... this is the kind of stuff I love.

BTW, I'm using 166lbs/in rear springs, I believe this helps a bit as well, being that they are slightly stiffer than the stock 144lbs/in rear springs that came on it from the factory.
