Default Herb Adams Sway Bar

Any body have the directions on setting up the old front Herb Adams sway bar? It's got the treaded rod that can be adjusted for cornering or ride. Bought the kit 15 years ago and can't find the adjustment info anywhere.

None of the HA bars do that I recall. My Ranchos to (I thought I was one of the only ones who still had them! Glad to hear I am not alone Mike!!).

HA bars that I have seen are fixed, but the endlinks are adjustable to preload the bar left/right. If you have them off, you can preload the suspension for say circle track use, or drag racing, etc. But for the street, I would recommend keeping them identical in length, as you don't want the car to be preloaded, else it will handle differently left to right.

What car do you have the HA bar on?

Keep the end link equal and if the are the originals be prepared for a noisey racket after a few hundred mile. I had that set up on my 76 when he first started producing them and he recalled the end linkes twice becauce they would wear out.If it happens on yours try some modern ones.
