    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-81-Chevrolet-Camaro-Pontiac-Firebird-Front-Sway-Bar-1-1-4-/270870346977?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3f11217ce1&vxp=mtr

    Don't know how long it will last, but this listing used to charge between 30 and 35 for shipping, and is at this moment, free. I just bought mine for 85 shipped. Didn't have to think twice.

    Just googled it. They indeed seem to have many complaints against them. I already did go through with the purchase though, so hopefully my experience with them wont be a negative one. On the bright side, if something does go wrong, maybe ebay will have my back.

    yes ebay will have your back. Joparts is his other screen name

    people have diff experiences with them..its hit or miss...but they are mean sum-bitchas when ya try to communicate if theres an issue...

    i will say this, Joe the owner has brought many many needed things to the market..things really needed, they do so much...too bad hes old school and not friendly..

    i have bought his products, but wont ever use him again..other vendors sell his stuff, and they value customer service, and the older i get, the more that means to me..even if it costs a little more, its worth it to me..

    F-Body sway bar.

    oldsbuickhybrid: I purchased that sway bar. It fits well.  

    But the poly support brackets were too wide.  So some re-drilling open the holes to fit stock location were needed.

    Its a beefy bar to say the least.  Makes the car ride a flatter feel along with the rear sway bar.

    My only gripe was the gold paint was the worst powder coat paint job ever.  I think its a rattle can job.

    I took mine to a local guy who does a lot of powder coating.   Nice shiny black.

    None of us like returns. We lose money on them and they're always for BS reasons.  Because of that I don't accept returns, period.

    Just got the bar last week.  It indeed looks much beefier than my OEM one.  Can't wait to install it, along with the GMPD rear control arms, and rear SS sway bar. Thanks for the heads up on the paint. I will paint it prior to installing.
