I took the Mustang out of hibernation yesterday. What a great feeling. I finally got to road test the work I completed over the winter. I’d like to share the results with the group:

1.New dual reservoir master cylinder: I installed a MC from a ’67 that I bought at Auto Zone for $25. Works great. Pedal response seems a little better than my old one.

2.New urethane sway bar bushings. I bought the greaseable type from Jegs. No noise yet, I’ll have to wait and see. Handling seems better, but that may be due to new monte carlo bar.

3. Installed curved Monte carlo bar. This is the best $25 I’ve spent on the car to date. It makes the car handle great (and I already had a rebuilt front end, 1” front sway bar and ¾” rear sway bar). However the best part is that the car now takes the bumps much smoother. It seems the front suspension is absorbing the bumps instead of the frame and the rest of the car. It rides like a totally different car. I HIGHLY recommend it, you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks

I didn't have too much of a problem putting the monte bar in. I didn't even jack up the car. All I had to do was put in one bolt on one side, then go over to other side and put in another one. I alternated sides until it was complete. I had to put a little pressure on the bar to make one of the holes line up. The curved bar makes it easier than a straight bar to manipulate it into place.
