Speedo Problems, HZ Speedo in a HZ

Hi Everyone,

My 1971 HQ has a HZ dash in it, but the speedo is giving incorrect readings. At first this might have been because of a different diff. ratio, but once I got the correct' speedo gear it was still reading incorrectly. It's reading under the road speed, ie, when I'm doing 110kmh (checked with my friends GPS), the speedo is reading 80k's, when I'm doing 80 it's around 60.
Any ideas what might be wrong? Is there any difference between the pre metric speedo drives to the metric speedo's out of the HZ's?

ALSO, my swaybar has an unfortunate habit of ripping out the shackle bolts and the thread from in the chassis. Does anyone have a solution to this problem that doesn't involve cutting the chassis open, or getting rid of the sway bar? Is there some way or strengthening the chassis in that area that works?

Thanks'
