I have a 1923 Model T that tends to "wander". Can anyone tell me if the stabilizer bar that can be purchased will take care of this??:)

Check your suspension and steering linkage first for looseness and check your front toe adjustment ( toe out will make a car wander),check wheel bearings and check tire condition, tires can make a car wander. If everything up front is OK check the rear end for looseness and alignment. Most people won't consider the fixed position rear ends in this situation, but I can tell you not so much if the rear is not centered (that makes the car go one way), but if bushings ect. are worn and sloppy and the rear is moving around the car will wander too. Look for combinations of all the above. One other thing to remind you about is your front beam has shims in it to give it some positive king pin inclination. If your inclination is zero or minus, your car will wander.

A sway bar only controls body/frame roll in turns.
