1979 MAGNUM GT front swat bar diameter ??
Hi to all,great site.
I have finally started work on my 1979 MAGNUM GT,have only had it for 20 years,so long overdue.
Could someone tell me the diameter of the front sway bar used on the GT,was there more than one sized ,mine measures 1" with a digital mic but I can't seem to find new 1" bushings.
Also interested in medium priced front shock suggestions.
Appreciate any help...............THANKS

GTB Welcome to Mopar fan.com. You were close, I believe it's .97 inches for the
GT front sway bar. Sand the 0.03 inches of surface rust and you'll get .97 Smile

What engine did your GT come with and do you have pics? Smile

Late B body score!

What parts are you in need of?
I still have a pair of black doors with power locks & windows and dual remote racing mirrors. Almost completely rust free (Very Light Surface only)
Black trunk lid (Very Light Surface only)
nice set of 79 tail lights
set of head light cover doors with all hardware
very nice pair of T-tops
and a few other misc. things

Can get pics of things interested in.
Make offer! Cheaper than you think!
(In the Orlando, Florida area)


Parts are from the black Magnum GT E58 in the picture in my signature.
