Quick Tech: Installing CPP’s High Clearance Rear Sway Bar

If you plan on putting a lot of miles on your street/strip car a well-thought-out rear suspension package is a must-have item. You’ll want a good rear sway bar that will not only make your car easier to drive on the street, but also put plenty of power down at the track. In this video, Classic Performance Products (CPP) shows you how to install its High Clearance Rear Sway Bar for the 1962-1967 Chevy Nova.

The rear sway bar has a big impact on how your vehicle will handle on and off the track. When you’re driving on the street, the rear sway bar helps to eliminate body roll and make your vehicle feel more stable when you turn. At the track, the rear sway bar makes sure the chassis doesn’t roll under acceleration, so all the horsepower you make finds its way to the surface of the track.

CPP designed its High Clearance Rear Sway Bar to mount to the rearend directly via clamps and bushings. The front of the sway bar mounts to the chassis thanks to a set of brackets and end links. This system is perfect for someone who owns a Nova and wants more performance out of their car. The CPP High Clearance Sway Bar can be adjusted to provide a more neutral or aggressive feel based on how you use the car. The bushings that CPP used for the sway bar actually trap grease to ensure the bushing stays lubricated.
