Is there any other swaybar I can use to stiffen up my suspension?

A cheap alternative to the stock swaybar is to use a sway off a Monarch or Granada. It is about the same diameter as a GT bar. It is a direct fit.

I got mine off of a 75 0r 76. I think any of them would work if they were that original body style. I'm not sure how long that style continued.

I think most have been crushed into cubes and sent to Asia by now. My dad hung on to his '77 'til the roof rotted out under the vinyl roof. It went to Asia about 6 years ago. RIP

You can reuse the stock bar with new bushings, they really aren't a "wear" item. However, you will like the better handling a larger bar will bring
