    Interested in a set of Hotchkis front and rear sway bars? I had them powder coated black. Did not install them.

    Any idea the measurements on the 87/88 T/C swaybar? I have several unidentified swaybars in the attic.

    Hello All,
    I too am in the market for a TC coupe front sway bar. I need one to better match the sway bar rate that comes with a cobra IRS, that I am in the process of doing a swap. I have one lead with a fellow SVOCA member, but not definite. My understanding is the mount on the SVO control arms is unique, and that the TC sway bar will be a little short and will have some bend in the links. It should measure 1.3 inch diameter IIRC. I was wondering if anyone knows if a Eibach/Hotchkis or other aftermarket swaybar for the TC is available or would work. The problem I have seen is that aftermarket bars don't always provide specs to figure out spring rates or how they are different from stock. So bottom line if anyone does have a 87/88 heavier TC swaybar, and even the K member brace that come with it, I woulld be interested in purchasing. I wonder what the specs on the Hotchkis you have Mike?

    The TC Coupe on our SVO is 1.275" in diameter. The sway bar end link location is about 1/2" inboard of the control arm end link location, so yeah, it's not perfectly vertical, but not far from it. HTH.
