In this day and age everyone is on the go trying to squeeze as much valuable time out of the day as possible. Every day we rise out of bed and run around like a bunch of chickens with our heads cut off trying to accomplish as much as possible, which ironically turns out to be not near enough. If you don't believe that, then check out this undeniable proof that America has even sacrificed sitting down to eat. Look how many companies are making on-the-go foods such as Campbell's soup in a cup you drink like coffee. Or Kraft's Easy Mac, where all you do is microwave water for two minutes, then dump in the water, powdered cheese, and noodles, and bam! you have macaroni and cheese. Then there's our personal favorite, Go-gurt, yogurt that's like a push-up pop-it's brilliant.
The list goes on, but the unfortunate thing is, no matter how much time we slash and dash, we'll never have the time we'd like to dedicate to our trucks. Seeing as how many installs can take a few days, a lot of guys don't want to get started on something knowing they'll have to bail midway through, but at the same time they want to work on the truck. What we all need is some sort of project on the go that can be handled after work in the garage, and for cheap!
Of course, there are installs that require removing a few screws and replacing something that can be done in no time, but that's not exactly thrilling. What we really want is something that actually feels like a project, not maintenance. One install for '60-87 Chevy trucks that fits the bill is installing a Classic Performance Products front sway bar. You can tackle the install at home in your garage on your back with simple hand tools, a jack, and jackstands. The best part is, it'll only take about an hour and cost somewhere in the range of $150! Not to mention the install will actually benefit your truck's handling and overall drivability.
Here's a look at the Classic...
Here's a look at the Classic Performance Parts front sway bar kit. It comes with everything needed to do the install: sway bar, bushings, end links, hardware, and mounting brackets. And you know what? The crazy part is, it's under $150 and takes minutes-yes, we said minutes-to do the install! By the way, if you're wondering about the low-profile brackets for lowered trucks, those are only $25. And for those of you running on air who are deliberating about whether to use stock brackets or low-profile brackets, CPP suggests sticking with the stock brackets.
Toward the front of the frame...
Toward the front of the frame there are two pre-drilled holes. This is where the factory sway bars mount, and it's also where the CPP bar mounts.
