4.2 ohm is high. AMM testing by resistance is usually... futile (get the joke).

Try unplugging the AMM and see if there is any difference on how the car starts/runs.

Yeah, the early 1975-1977 245's had a stiffer spring up front than the later 245's so they used a small swaybar as a result. No rear swaybar on them.
