1967 impala sway bar issues
I have a 1967 impala convertible with tubular front global west uppers and lowers.
Installed a Hellwig sway bar #5713 - 1 1/8 thick.
I was able to run the sway bar thru the frame and connected the end links with no problems.
However, the U shape frame brackets do not line up when installed with bar. They do do line up to frame holes without the bar.
The rear hole on frame is off about 1/2 inch.
I called Hellwigs rep, he said i had the right Bar for my year #5713. Also said no one has ever called them with this issue.
The Hellwig instructions do not say anything about drilling another hole on frame.
Has anyone else with 1965-70 impalas ran into this issue with the front bar?
Does the Addco #864 bar fit better ?
I feel like that bracket should be twisted a bit like the original from the 7/8 bar.
