to late it already sound like one of my questions...

seriously. sway bars help with sway i woudl think that if you can get your hands on one for the bus then it would be ideal to use on the bus, but, i would think you woudl want to keep it away from any heat, such as a torch, because this could make the sway bar more flexible once heated.

just my .02

hey when you get done with the volvo swaybars on the bus you should get a turbo from an old mustang and megasquirt the bus.

You admit to owning Volvo station wagons????

I used to have Volvo station wagons and twice I put aftermarket sway bars on them. It improved them a bunch. So now I am considering a swaybar for my '63 bus to reduce the rocking in turns.

Only the '67 had a swaybar from the factory. I can put a bar from the '67 if I grind off some of the metal on the connecting rod so that it will accept both the bar's clamp and the shock absorber.

  Is it worth it? Will it greatly stabilize the rocking?

I don't want this to sound like Chuck's Megasquirt or anything that Brian comes up with, it sounds simple, is it?
