I'm rebuilding my '54 Corvette. What are the advantages, if any, to having a rear sway bar or a larger one? Car will be an on and off daily driver. Thanks, Ed

Ed I know you asked about a R bar but how bad is the roll now? If you need a big reduction I would go to a bigger bar in F first. If bottoming out in F and too much roll. Stiffer, shorter F springs with your currant bar. Still too much roll go to a bigger F bar. Last add a rear bar.
Usually we go with the thought the F handles 90% and the R 5-10% so the rear is part of our fine tuning.
Don't go too heavy of a rate on springs as stock one's are a little firm on riders now.
Check those companys that help fund this site for their thoughts.
