whats been used for KA24 Swap , sway bars now a days

Postby ajen68510 » 27 Jul 2014 19:24

Datsport only works with their swap kit
DGR not in business ?
Quickor Suspension has one , but its just a adjustable for standard 510, cannot confirm will work with swap.

Any suggestions ?

quickor had designed a bar for the front-sump swap cars. DGR had still been listing bars for sale through eBay.

FutoFab has designed and will be releasing a 1.125" front sump bar for the 510 in the next few weeks.

This is one of a number of new products coming out of FutoFab over the next few months.

some guy on LA craigslist listed them occasionally. I think whenever the eagle rock swap meets go down. his were $325 IIRC. doesn't have any now but said it wouldn't be long before he gets some more. a little too high for me but their pretty rare...

If you saw where FutoFab resides you'd agree this statement should include, Skunk, Deer, Bear, Coyotes, Possium, Moose and the ever present MOG.

Nice job Dave, I should run down there sometime soon and have a visit and look 8>)
