*cough, cough, stealth project cough*
long story short, I need to either cut and weld or heat and bend a 20mm swaybar (don't ask why)
anyone know what type of steel they are made of?
are they are actually spring steel or just high carbon?
I don't caer too much about getting it back to it's exact harness etc but want it to be close and especially don't want it to bend or break too easly
heating and bending is my prefered method of modification
thanks for your ideas (hair brained or not)

do you know what type of steel sway bars are made out of,
as in what alloy? I know I'll have to do some hardening once I'm done but if I had a clue what alloy it would make it easier

it is subaru, and it was the late 70s when they thought of them. so cant be too much technology in there. they are mounted with rubber, cant be too much stress.
they are nowhere near as hard as springs, or shock rods. heat er up, and let er buck!
