well for the 16x chassis (non alltrac) there is 1 option. whiteline. there isn't anything wrong with that but i'd like to see if 18x or even 20x chassis bars will work the same.
i think tim had a 18x bar on the back of his 16x. and 18x and 20x rear bars are the same. so hopefully that's all true. the front i'm curious about since i've never heard anything about them.

The 165 and 185 part numbers are different, and in the diagrams they look to be shaped a bit differently as well.

Could just take your front bar off...

If it's a track only car, just play with the spring rates in the back.

Willie, I saw pics of Tim's setup with the ST184 SusTech bar on there. It wasn't pretty, the angles for the endlinks were way jacked up. You don't want to go that route.

Like I said before, an ST165 bar up front will probably bolt up front. My understanding over the years is that the front half of the ST165 is the same as the ST162 in all variants. At least from the firewall forward. Your problem will then become obtaining one; they are discontinued. So your option is to trawl for months or longer.....or dig through at.net to find that post about interchangeability amongst Alltrac swaybars.
