This question is probably dumb but here goes anyway.....I've got a 70 Malibu....when driving, it feels like it has some "sway" in rear of the car. Now, the does not have a rear sway bar. I've put new shocks on it (didn't help any). Do you think adding a sway bar will fix this problem?

Thanks,
Rick

Unless you're running thin-wall slicks then I'd suspect you need bushings. I'm sure you checked the lug nuts already.

You will notice immediately the improvement to handling with a sway bar installation. The car will feel firmer no matter what your driving habits. You bet, Doug was right on that the basics have to be right first ...bushings, etc.

Yep, tire inflation is correct. Sounds like bushings and sway bar will help.
