Or should I say continue. I do have an SCT tune already.

I'm going to remove my front sway bar and install this Granatelli radiator support tomorrow. That should take off a little weight up front.

This support weighs 3 3/4 pounds. BMR advertises 5 1/2 for theirs. Not much difference in weight but if it works why not. It only costs $65 too compared to $149 for the BMR.

Not sure yet. If I ever have another problem I may have to reinstall that front bar. Better hold off for now.

I can't imagine you can't find some one willing to part with theirs. Did you try over on http://www.mustangforums.com/forumid_5/tt.htm ?

Haven't tried there.. Never been on that site.

I might just modify an F-body bar to fit. Cut off the ends and weld on 1/4" thick steel plate for "arms" to reach back to the endlinks.

Just a "little" more money than I'm willing to spend for basically throw-away parts (IMHO). I'll make what I have work

I agree $150 is quite a lot but just packaging up two sway bars might be a good task. But somebody was willing to pay that much.

How much would you be willing to pay for mine? I assume you want just the front? I would sure hate to keep it forever for nothing if somebody needs it.

I'd pay $50 landed, and yes - I only need the front. The rear setup is a solid Wolfe bar.
