FRONT SWAY BAR - PREVENT ROLL
The sway bar can also be referred to as a stabilizer bar or an anti-sway bar. Most sway bars mount at two places, on the frame or on the body of the vehicle. The bar then extends out to each side of the vehicles suspension, linking the right side suspension to the left side suspension. The purpose of the sway bar is to reduce the amount of sway or body roll as a vehicle's weight is shifted from side to side. When a vehicle's weight is shifted from the side to side, the sway bar applies the load from one side of the suspension to the other, keeping the body from swaying or rolling to the side experiencing the most loads.
The purpose of the sway bar is to keep the body of the vehicle level while maintaining traction and control of the vehicle as the weight is shifted from side to side. The transfer of loads through the sway bar can improve the handling of a vehicle.
If you're interested in improving the handling of your vehicle, you may consider adding a sway bar to the front or to the rear of your vehicle - if it doesn't already have one. If your vehicle does have a sway bar, it's advisable to make sure the bushings and links are not worn out. Sway bars are available in various sizes, designed to help improve the handling of a vehicle. Over time, sway bars can eventually break. Other parts of the sway bar system, such as the mounting bushings or links, can also wear out. Replacing these wearable parts can eliminate any play that might be found in the sway bar system.
