Replacing Regular Stabilizer/Anti-Sway Bar with a 75 Series or CC Bar

The regular body style cars (62 series, DeVilles, Eldo, Fleetwood 60 Special) use a stabilizer/anti-sway bar that is about 13/16" in diameter.
The 75 series/Commercial Chassis cars use one that is about 15/16" in diameter and provide better anti-sway resistance when cornering.

Installing a stabilizer/anti-sway bar from the 75 series/CC in a regular body style is a great suspension upgrade.  I installed one on my 64 Coupe DeVille a few years ago and could tell am immediate improvement in reducing body roll when cornering.

If you know of anyone parting out, or that just happens to have one of these thicker anti-sway bars grab it.  You can then pick up the end link-kits for reasonble prices at many local auto parts stores such as Autozone ($18 a pair for part# SL90HD or at Kanter ($22 in current catalog).  You can reuse the existing mount bushings where the bar mounts up to the frame if in good condition (it's a tight squeeze) or can pick up new mount bushings from Kanter and other places like Summit.


I've parted out four 75 series cars over the years and no...I don't have any to sell right now.  If you see someone parting out one of these cars, I would recommend picking up the anti-sway bar if it is reasonably priced.  For many muscle cars, you can find aftermarket anti-sway bars for these cars, but don't remembers specifically seeing these for the 63/64 Cadillacs. Perhaps some of these other makes/models will interchange?  If so, please let us all know as these 75 series/CC bars are hard to come by!!!

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
