Anyone have experience with one versus the other, as mounted on a '68 Dart..?

Summit sells the Addco sway bar setups for about $30.00 less that the comparable Herllwig kit..($150 vs $180).

I'm looking for ease of install as a priority, as I only have simple home garage tools.

At one time Hellwig bars came with tabs for the LCAs and mounted like factory bars, while Addco bars mounted to the strut rods like early Bs and Cs. Given a choice I'd probably go Hellwig.

I have Helwig front and rear on my 67 Dart

The only problem I run into was the rear mount to the frame rail was to be done with body bolts. This does not work, or at least for me. SO I installed 3/8" steel riv nuts..........I had a special tool made to compress them. I think it will stay on the car now.

The car rides and handles very good for an old car. Corners flat if you can stay in the seat would be even better

The most important consideration is to have the front and rear work as a combination. A lot of pro and con on the addition of a rear sway bar on other than a car driven for competition. What are the sources used to determine the correct combination for torsion bar spring weight, front sway bar diameter and rear sway bar diameter?
