1970 SS Front Sway Bar

What is the stock diameter of the front sway bar for a '70 SS without RPO F41? Mine measures 15/16". Is that correct? Also, what was the stock size of the sway bar on a small block?

OK, so you move my thread and then throw a couple parts catalog numbers at me with no explanation of where they are used. How about answering the question:


What's the diameter of a stock '70 non-F41 SS front sway bar and what's the diameter of a stock '70 small block front sway bar?

Yeah ,they are both described as to there usage.
I didn't post the year used as I thought you asked about a 70.
Shows no difference from SBC to BBC in the parts catalog.
Stock '70 non-F41 SS front sway bar is GM p/n 401194 -1" exc. Spec. Perf.Susp.
As posted
Only .875" shaft showing is for 69 Chevelle and 70-72 MC

Way to go off on the guy and be a jerk to somebody who DID answer the question you asked.
