The sway bar, aka stabilizer bar or anti-roll bar, connects the suspension on opposite sides of the vehicle. It reduces body roll, so the vehicle stays more level when turning, resulting in better weight distribution on the tires, and improved handling and traction. Most modern vehicles have front sway bars, and many, especially performance cars, have rear bars. The degree to which the sway bar resists twisting and body roll depends on its stiffness.

Most OE suspension systems, even on performance models, are a compromise between good handling and comfortable ride. Factory sway bar diameters are conservative, and installing larger diameter aftermarket sway bars will increase stiffness and resistance to body roll. Adding a rear sway bar to a vehicle not originally equipped with one, like a pickup truck, will greatly improve handling, especially when tall loads like a camper are carried in the bed.

Reducing body roll will not only make your vehicle more responsive, it will also reduce over and understeer tendencies and make it safer to drive during emergency maneuvers. Our sway bars will measurably enhance performance by themselves, but they’re the perfect complement to performance springs and shocks. These bars are precision bent on CNC machines to assure perfect fitment, and powder coated for a durable, long lasting finish. Most come with polyurethane bushings, and many bars are adjustable so you can fine tune your suspension.

There are driving conditions where a sway bar can be a detriment to vehicle performance. When vehicles like Jeeps are driven off-road over large obstacles, more suspension travel and greater suspension articulation is desired, and sway bars are disconnected from the control arms to allow this. Quick disconnect links are popular, but the Skyjacker® RockLock sway bar is an alternative for Jeep Wranglers. The RockLock features a locking hub that allows the sway bar to be unlocked for zero resistance when off-roading, and locked, with your choice of 3 levels of resistance, for normal street driving.

Another place where disconnecting the sway bar can be beneficial is the drag strip. Disconnecting the sway bar from the control arms allows the front end to come up easier for better weight transfer and increased traction when the car launches. This can lower elapsed times by as much as 2/10 of a second. Lakewood® Qwiklinks allow quick and easy sway bar disconnection and connection, so you get the performance you want at the strip and the handling you need on the street. They feature adjustable lengths to facilitate different ride heights and spherical rod ends.

    Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.
  • Performance Parts
    The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most specialists recommend inspecting suspension system after every 6,500-7,500 miles or when there are any signs of its breakage.

    Lowering is high on the list of many people who want to improve the appearance of their car. If you want to lower your car with the coil springs, then replacing them with lowering springs is the way to go. But what if you want to lower your car and also make it handle better? If that’s your goal then consider coil-over shocks.

2008 Dodge Ram / Posted by Cliff (North Powder, OR) /

When the sway bar link broke on my 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 I started to order stock ones from the local auto parts. $120 for a pair of them started me looking for another place to purchase them. After reading a few forms and talking to some dodge drivers 50,000 is about all you get from stock end links. I wanted allot better than that. After allot of searching on the internet for a better product i ordered the smx-1227 sway bar links from CARiD. These end links are the cats meow, high grade steel, 8 grade bolts they look tough and work great. The install was simple and very easy just took 1 hour to replace. Some of that time was looking for tools!. These will last the life of my truck because of the way they are built. Be sure and replace the sway bar bushings also at the same time for a solid front end feel. Great service and quick shipping I will always order from CARiD.
