Default Sway bar ?

My car has no sway bar front or rear.My 60ft times are in the 1.60's.My shocks are the comp enginer on all 4 corners.Dead hooks will a rear swing arm improve my 60ft times?
Thanks in advance..

Are you having roll rotation issues? If it truly is dead hooking, then you aren't going to get better. If you are trying to keep the attitude of the chassis more level then an anti-roll bar will help. Or if you are having rear steering problems from the driver side hooking more.

If you have a four link then you can run a swing arm, but at 1.60 60' times I can't believe you would need to go to that extent.

Thanks I had the same thoughts just wasnt sure.I posted a video in the show off section.In car view hitting a 150 shot right off the green.
Its a sbc 355 4000 lbs car with driver xe274 cam edelbrock performer heads with some lite work.Th350 trans 3600 stall 373 gears.1.60 60ft times for such a heavy car very street frwy friendly very mild build I am happy with it.No need to add weight if not needed.Front sway bar weighed atleast 25 pounds.
Thanks for your reply.

Found one of my lower trailing arms was bent.I mounted a kit upper and lowers adjustables with solid bushings from Southside Machine Performance.
Made a profound difference vs the stock arms on the launch and upshits...
