Toyota 4runner Sway Bar Link Kit

Troubleshooting Tips for Your Toyota 4runner Sway Bar Link Kit

There are several concealed components of your Toyota 4Runner that you often take for granted, and you will be surprised that once your vehicle breaks down, a certain uncommon part is the culprit. Same goes with your Toyota 4Runner's sway bar link kit. It is composed of the sway bar link and metal bearings that are responsible in keeping your vehicle balanced even if you are cornering. It could be in front or at the back of your vehicle, bolted to the suspension. Over time, it could break and cause you driving problems. Here are some tips on how to troubleshoot your Toyota 4Runner sway bar link kit problems.

Poor handling

One of the major disasters that you could experience if your sway bar breaks apart or if its components wear out is poor handling. Since the bar can no longer connect the chassis, it won't be able to perform its function in keeping your vehicle from leaning whenever you corner. Also, you might notice a fidgety handling if your sway bar is broken or damaged. When this happens, you need to replace it immediately with a new one.

Flapping noise

If the sway bar link of your vehicle is broken, it would either dangle or fall off from your vehicle. The other piece would probably clink and clank as it comes in contact with its nearby steel components. This could be very annoying and alarming since this will also be coupled by a twitchy handling. What you can do is to check the sway bar link for missing or worn-out bushings or nuts that might have caused it to loosen.

Rusted bearings

If your sway bar link is in top condition, but you still experience handling problems, better check if the bearings are also in good shape. Sometimes, the bearings of the sway bar link kit are poorly lubricated, making them prone to wear and tear. These small parts are also prone to corrosion, so it is best to replace them once they are already rusting. Inspect them regularly to check if there is a need to replace them or if there are missing parts that also need replacement.

  • Maintaining Your Toyota 4Runner Sway Bar Link Kit

    Your Toyota 4Runner sway bar link kit is made up of steel materials that are meant to be durable enough to ensure your vehicle's proper handling. This means that the sway bar link and the bearings are prone to corrosion and premature wear. However, there are some tricks that you can do in order to keep the kit's components in good condition. Here are some helpful tips that you can follow:


    Inspect it regularly.

    The sway bar link has a huge responsibility in keeping your vehicle balanced even when you turn corners. The load that it has to bear is massive, so it is prone to breakage. The bearings, on the other hand, are also prone to wear and tear due to their small size. Whenever you service your vehicle, take time to check these parts for any sign of damage or corrosion. Replace them if necessary. You don't have to replace the entire kit, though. Just make sure that every part is in good condition.


    Apply rust-proofing.

    Since everything in the kit is made up of metal, they are all prone to corrode after some years. So if you are thinking of replacing your stock sway bar link kit, we suggest that you coat your replacement kit contents with rust-proofing spray or paint. This will keep them from rusting and wearing out, thus, prolonging the service life of the sway bar link and its bearings.


    Turn your vehicle smoothly.

    This is one of the best ways to keep your sway bar link kit in good condition. Since they become prone to wear and tear whenever you turn your vehicle, do your best to turn your 4Runner smoothly every time. This will minimize the load that the link needs to sustain. Not only that, you can also keep the sway bar itself from breaking since you are practicing proper handling of your vehicle.


    Keep it clean and lubricated.

    These metal components all need a little bit of lubrication once in a while to help them function effectively. Make sure that they are free from dirt and rust and keep them oiled to ensure that they will not easily succumb to premature wear.
