Will the trac bar that you have made also work on the P30 chassis or does it need to go to the bottom of the springs as does the Henderson one does?

I'm not the desiner of the home made trac bar, but I think I can answer. First, each different chassis needs a separate design, at least as far as the mounting of a pan-hard rod (trac bar). Second, an independent front suspension like the P30 is a totally different suspension than the leaf spring & solid axle of the W20/W22 or Ford F53. I not even sure a trac bar is a good idea for that type of suspension - I'll leave that question to someone more expert in independent suspensions than I.

Sorry, I should have said that I was talking about a rear trac bar.

One could make a rear bar for a P30, but the mounts would likely be different than that of another chassis. The basic principle is the same, though. You anchor the suspended part to the unsuspended part with a horizontal lever that can ride up and down to accomodate the travel of the suspension.
