Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re- Sway bar

I installed a 1" bar in front and a 7/8" bar in the rear of my '56 long bed
F-100. I carry a 1,500 lb camper and regularly drive it in the mountains.
I am very pleased with the handling. Before the rear bar was installed, the
body roll was pretty bad. Now if I mis-judge a corner a little bit too
fast, the truck just sets and goes around with no drama. You can get
thicker bars, but for evryday unloaded "spirited driving" I think it would
be overkill. Steve

Dennis,

I installed a rear sway bar on my '53 F100. It really
made a difference in body roll. I had a MII IFS with a
front sway bar, but I still had some roll. Now it
really stays flat.

While we are talking about sway bars, we've got MII IFS and I was
wondering if you just use the stock sway bar? The truck is a 52, we've
also got a C*m*ro rear end in it and I was thinking of using the sway
bar that came with it. Has anyone done this? I put a rear sway bar on
my car and it realy helped, i also replaced my stock 1" front sway bar
with a 1 7/8" and that made the world of diff in corning.

Is this with the stock suspension setup? I-beam & leaf springs in the
front? If so, where'd you get the bars and attaching hardware, etc?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Has anyone with a 48-52 FORD F1 bought the EMS floorpan? If so did you
experience any problem with installation? Did it fit without any trimming?
Thanks for any replies in advance.

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Re: Speaking of Radials

Most of the replies I have gotten have mentioned late
60's wheels. I don't have any preference just as
long as I get wide white radials on the truck and I
can use stock hub caps and beauty rings.
