        Actually, that chart is missing the standard 2bbl V8 bar size: Diameter .850, rate 101#, PN 2071624 (R), 207165 (L). I am looking at a chart of the OEM bars — I suspect the chart Bogie posted shows Mopar Performance parts. The spring rates on this chart are higher than the factory ratings for the same size bars, though I wouldn't worry too much about that.

          You can also find .87 bars on later 318 A bodies with AC. Nice starting point with a front sway bar, especially an Early A.

              Yup, my '71 Dart GT and the '74 Swinger parts car I had both had 318's with AC, both had .87" "340" bars

              Yeah exactly! I wouldn't put anything less than 1" on a car that was going to see street duty, they call that a "solo and road racing" bar. Yeah right! :rofl:

              I run 1.12" bars on my Duster and while it was set up for autoX it does just fine as a daily driver.

                I have 1" on Dart but I'm upping to 1.08" bars from Sway-A-Way.

                      Funny...I was about to post the same remark!

                      I run 1.15 bars in my '70 Charger and it rides about the same as the Wife's 2015 Challenger.

                      Me three ;)
                      The 1.03" in my Dart are firm but not obnoxiously stiff. Just right for the low-deck in the nose :)
