Took my 67 out to a show,,
Had THE good fortune to meet some nice people and make some new friends.
Also had another 67 owner ask if i needed any trim parts,, so in that respect I also made some new Galaxie contacts.

Also got some new personal touches added to her today as well.
It was gorgeous weather and the show was the largest turn- out ever for our town.

All in all it was a great day to be alive.
Bonus to be a car guy.

Took the Galaxie to cars and coffee. Absolutely huge turnout and there was also a gorgeous 59 Galaxie there as well. Later in the afternoon took a long country drive and then came home and smoked ribs.....perfect day!

Re: What did you do with your GALAXIE today?

Iíve been working on completely rebuilding my 64s suspension the last few weeks.

All new bushings, ball joints, tie rods, seals, bearings, wilwood brakes, offset shaft delete, and an oversized addco sway bar in the front. And in the rear, new springs, bushings, insulators, seals, bearings, completely rebuilt diff gear with new posi unit, and wilwood brakes.

Also, everything that was taken out and apart, has been stripped and powder coated.

Hopefully this will stabilize the ride in this old girl some.

I took her to get her new top installed, one step closer to having her officially back on the road!

Re: What did you do with your GALAXIE today?

not exact by any means, but cornering puts weight on the outside wheelmaking it plant on the road. when a big anti sway bar is added, the bar makes the inside tire lift because it has to do what the outside tire is doing. basically you now have only one tire on the road. less traction, more under steer

Please ignore the previous reply to your question.

In short... it wonít.

A bigger sway bar makes the 2 tires work together more, not less. For instance, if you corner the car hard, the entire nose stays down instead of massive amounts of body roll, which will eventually pick up a tire, or at least, make a tire ride on its edge.

The reason people put larger than stock anti-sway bars on car... is because they work.
