Sway Bar

Steering & Suspension

Description

The sway bar, also known as a stabilizer bar, is made of spring steel and mounts to the frame or uni-body. The ends of the sway bar connect to the lower control arms.

Purpose

The sway bar helps reduce vehicle lean during cornering.

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems, including the sway bar, bushings, and links, should be checked regularly, at least once a year along with a complete wheel alignment. Worn, damaged or missing bushings can cause excessive leaning on turns or a metallic rattling sound from underneath the vehicle when going over bumps. To get professional help with your car’s steering and suspension problems, contact a qualified service technician.
