What's the easiest way to remove the front sway bar?

ON most cars you just unbolt the bar from the frame and drop it down. Also remove the linkages and put them in a baggie with a label and tape it to the bar. Pretty simple really.

put the car on a lift, may have to remove a wheel, remove tie rod from drivers side,(that was on mine) and snake the sway bar out like a puzzle. At worst, you can cut in half with a sawzall.

Remove radiator and support hoop if you have to, bottom of intake scoop is separate maybe not a prob
If your upgrading to coil overs and spherical rear control arm bushings keep it and keep or add rear sway bar sized to match
It’s the rear rubber arm bushings binding and acting like sway bar
It’s a rare piece don’t cut it
One of the first 2 ZL-1s delivered to Gibb is at a Vette dealer in Beaumont

I've driven past that Vette place. He sells old Vettes, and I believe restores them too. It's on HWY 90 on your way out of Beaumont. I need to stop in some time.
On my CR the shroud in the nose cone it tightly cut around the sway bar, so snaking it out will require some Houdini moves. In the rear, I do feel some binding at times. Which had me contemplating purchasing Team Z relocated uppers. I know the lower control arm will not work on these CR.

Team Z relocate kit is the way to go. They sell parts to make lowers to match
Poly ends on the chassis, regular spherical on the rear end
The Classic lower arm is 3” shorter than stock
I’d leave the sway bar with the bearings instead of bushings in the rear
Use a sway bar in the rear sized to work with the front
Great look on your Classic that’s a sweet ride
That is the other ZL-1 delivered on New Years Eve
The Porterfield dragster was too


Party On

The Team Z Street version has the poly on the body ends
It comes that way, I think they will custom make the lowers
I’m using stock rubber bushings to finish this up and get titled with what I have
The hardtop roundup kinda distracted me from chassis fab
Life’s good

Hey that’s great bring in a lower and see what they can do. Talking to them on the phone they seemed like they do lots of custom work

It'll be great if they would be able to tell you whether their rear upper relocation kit would work on our CRII since the lowers are 3" shorter than stock.
