I'm jumping all over the areas of this car, the front end was giving me the blues, so I moved to the back..Anyhow, has anyone put traction bars on a Lark? If so what kind? In looking at the leaf springs, it looks like they would be kinda short?? Thanks!

Still working to restore my 62 Lark in South Bend, Indiana

I'm sure you can easily adapt the Avanti/Hawk traction bars offered by various vendors like SI..

I think someone suggested Cal-Tracs, and a guy I work with swears they did wonders for a drag Nova he's worked on. I don't know of anyone that's actually installed them on a Stude however.
