Just ask Robert Pond if an anti-roll bar is considered a traction device. From what I have been told he had to move his from inside the trunk to under the car. At that time NHRA ruled it as a traction device and said he could continue using it as long as it was bolted in. I do believe the brackets can be welded to the rearend housing but thats all.

I went to a lot of trouble back in the day to put an anti-roll bar in my car and make it 100% bolt in. Worked like a champ but definitely would have been easier to weld it in.

If the "weld on" style are legal, I'll be changing mine over. I have some issues with my bolt on system, some welding would correct these problems.

Here's one that is 100% bolt on and used by several Stockers and even some 9"tire SS. It works!

Sway bar = panhard bar. Locates the rear end side-to-side. Anti-roll bars control body roll. Two separate components. Body roll & side-to-side sway are two different things.
At least that's according to GM shop manuals.

i'm not looking for an argument but, i guess i'll have to disagree with gm on that one . how in the world a (sway bar = a panhard rod) is beyond me. i guess a camaro with a front sway locates the front end? LOL. in my opinion a sway bar and a anti roll bar are the exact same thing. they both control body roll. i guess technically it should be called an anti-swaybar

Mark, sway is side-to-side. A panhard bar locates/centers the rear end under the car side-to-side, but will not control body roll.
That front bar is anti-roll also.
