Default coil over suspension

Does anyone use sway bars with a coil over tubular A-arm suspension?

I was told you don't use sway bars with coil overs.

We use nascar style sway bars from speedway engineering in california on all of our race cars. our set ups on the roadsters as well as the daytonas are tubular upper and lower control arms coil overs and various brake set ups. we use speedways arms and straight bars and use various size link bars with hiem joints that allow pre loading if need be. The set ups work great and are very easy to adjust. Im not a salesperson for speedway , but check out there web site.

Thanks, I just want my cobra to handle the best it can. Just looking for some help deciding, with or without sway bar. Have coil overs and tubular A-arms now. Most driving will be street for now, maybe race later.

I used the speedway eng on my LSC - in the front because I have not found any to fit the rears yet - do a search for sway bars and look for mine "rblong". Shows front install - worked great. I have tube arms and coil overs.

Then don't put them on.

Then you probably need to take it to the track, and test it with and without.

We use and have a modified Speedway bar set too. There is no problem running sway bars with coil-overs if you have a properly tuned suspension setup. Call Speedway and tell them about the car you want to add the bars too. They will ask you specific questions about your set up and recommend the right bars to use.
