Q: Traction Bars for 1967 and 1968
I was recently browsing the archives and seen information about what firebirds came with traction bars. I am confused to what models got what type of traction bar.
I have a 1967 Firebird convertible with a 326 two barrel but I have two traction bars. This car is not a high output model. And to my knowledge this car is original.
A: 68s didnt have traction bars.
OHC-6 1bbl auto. none (exception is rear end ratio 323 or higher) OHC-6 1bbl man. RH side
OHC-6 4bbl. auto. RH side
OHC-6 4bbl. man. both sides
V-8 2&4bbl. auto. RH side
V-8 2&4bbl. man. both
I also found that the rear end ratio or type in this case determined the option of one or two bars or radius rods. i.e. if a car has a 4 pinion rear end it will have both bars. this is for posi and open 4 pinion rears.
