Sway Bar Kit
Have you ever wondered why so many heavy trucks careen off to the side and fall over when cornering quickly? This is because they have a tendency to tip over to one side each time they turn sharply. In the automotive industry, this dangerous tipping movement is called "body roll"-and it's not only trucks and heavier vehicles that are prone to this type of cornering reaction. Any vehicle with a bad Sway Bar can experience body roll, which is why it pays to have a dependable and durable sway bar replacement in your car.
The Sway Bar is a type of torsion spring that uses U-shaped steel to connect your chassis on both sides of your suspension and auto body. This suspension part helps control body roll by making sure your vehicle stays flat on the ground as you round a corner. This component is often incorporated in both front and rear suspensions to help enhance a vehicle's cornering agility. Each time you round a corner, the sway bar acts like a spring, resisting incredible torsion so long as both your left and right wheels remain synchronized in their movement.
But like all other suspension components installed in your vehicle, something as simple as wheel misalignment could cause early breakdown of this part. If you experience body roll each time you turn, it's time for you to invest in replacement sway bar parts to avoid experiencing more suspension troubles.
