I'm installing an Avanti sway bar on my 66 Daytona. I'm working on upper mounts for the links. What angle should the links be at when the car is level on the ground? From pictures I've found on the internet of Avanti installations, the links aren't perpendicular to the sway bar itself (which I assume is parallel to the ground when the car is sitting normally) - it looks like they lean forward.

Thanks, Ernie - it does. 40 to 45 degrees?

Here is a pic. the bracket is 3/16" X 2.75" X 5.5" I can check the angle later.

I'd say that is a good guess.
