I found bars wasn't the answer in my 68, in my option I would go with adjustable control arms to change the pinion angel.

One of the advantages of aftermarket susepension upgrades is adjustability. If you weld them in, you'll loose that benefit. Certainly, you'd weld the mounting tabs, but want to maintain the tuning capabilities of the ladder bar.

The benefit of ladder bars or a 4-link set up is the ability to adjust instant center of the car which dictates how hard the tires are hit when you launch.

I'd go the control arm/air bag route. Do you drive it on the street? If so, found a really large sway bar. On the G bodies we were running damn near 1 1/2 or more. If it is more a track car, look into
