Starting to plan out sway bar stuff. I think I found enough real estate in the rear for a 12" arm. Is there a calculator or anecdotal info as to diameter for our hobby? 7/8" seems to be a common size for race cars.

12" is very short unless your going to go to your link bars

no calculator too many variables.  find a type of bar thats easy to source in a few different sizes so you can change if you want. 

we run 49 spline 1.25" bars on all our cars, we have a stack different effective diamater bars also.

37.5" is the correct length. What do you use for bushings?

How long are the arms? 15"?
