Vehicle Sway Bars & Components
Sway bars, and their components, are essential components on a vehicle, and they ensure that the vehicle operates properly, while turning. The main advantage of using a sway bar is it reduces "body roll", which occurs when the weight of the vehicle resides on one side of the vehicle's suspension. Sway bars, and its components, are typically installed on high performance vehicles, which do the type of turning and cornering that a sway bar assists in. The installation of a sway bar, and its components is convenient, and is available as an aftermarket kit or accessory.
A sway bar bushing is the component that connects the sway bar to the vehicles chassis. This bushing is vital to a proper functioning sway bar because it allows the bar to float and react to changing road conditions more efficiently. There is two bushing used on each bar and they are located at either end of the chassis on the lower control arms. Using a bushing instead of just mounting the sway bar to the frame will make for a less rigid connection that is able to shift the large amounts of weight generated as the body of the vehicles rolls into a turn. There is normally only one sway bar which is mounted at the front of the vehicle but some high performance vehicles will have a bar and bushings towards the rear of the chassis as well to enhance handling even more.

Sway bar kits are among the most popular and efficient ways of adding a sway bar to a vehicle. These kits come with everything needed to properly install the sway bar and its components. These kits are typically made up of the bar itself, bushings, links, brackets, and all the small hardware such as bolts and nuts which are used to secure the bar to the rest of the suspension. Sway bar kits are typically purchased for vehicles that may have not been built for performance by the factory but are being upgraded enough to where a sway bar will provide added benefit. Getting all these parts in a kit will ensure that they all fit together properly once installed on the vehicle. Buying a kit also reduces the chance that a component can be forgotten about when purchasing which can lead to lengthy installation periods. Continue Reading -->
A sway bar is a component on a vehicles suspension which reduces body roll as the vehicle enters a corner at high speeds. The sway bar runs lateral on the vehicle and it connects to either end of the chassis near the lower control arms. Either end of the bar is held in place by bushing which are what bolts to the vehicles frame. This setup allows the sway bar to twist and turn inside the bushing so that it can better react to changing road conditions. Sway bars are a component of the suspension that is not necessarily needed for ever day operation, but with the advent of sportier cars that are capable of much higher speeds these bars are becoming a standard feature in many modern vehicles. Sway bars are typically only used on the front of the chassis but they can be used at the rear as well on some vehicles. Continue Reading -->
