How far forward do they reach on the springs Sam? Assuming they're on a 69 I would imagine the snubbers are about 2" back from the eyelet?

Here's a set that kind of look like post 346.

We've had these on the nomad since the mid 70's. I think my father bought them sometime in the 60's and ran them on one of his tri-5's back then.

I don't even remember what brand they are anymore. Sorry for the poor picture, that's all I can get at the moment.

Nevermind, I'd have to resize the file, beyond my capabilities.

One bar that I didn't see much in this entire thread was the Hurst AdjustaBars. I know they weren't terribly popular but they did look kind cool.

That looks like what I've done to standard Lakewood bars in the past. I'd take a square tube that fits inside the existing square and slide it in to make the bar longer and reach the spring eye where it should be. Then just weld it.

What kind of bars are these? I hope they're Traction Action since I put the stickers on. I know they're Lakewood, the guy that put them on the Camaro back in the day confirmed it.

Edit: looks like they aren't. I know that even if they were, we don't have the JBolts. It's a U-bolt setup. Shoot. I'll probably still run the decals anyways.

I donít follow your reasoning. Those are J bolt style.
