Sway Bars

Sway bars control sway and minimize driver fatigue by increasing stability and making the vehicle easier to drive. Sway bars are constantly exposed to the elements and after a while the rubber bushings can fail and the sway bar itself can become rusted and corroded causing the vehicle to become unsafe to drive. Our solid steel sway bars reduce side-to-side movement, cut down on the effects of external conditions such as crosswinds and help the vehicle stay level on irregular surfaces.

Sway Bars for Cars, Trucks, and SUVs

A sway bar is a key component in the stabilization of your vehicle. Also known as a stabilizer bar, an anti-sway bar or an anti-roll bar, the sway bar helps make your vehicle safer and easier to drive. As it increases stability, the sway bar makes for a more relaxed and efficient drive, lessening driver fatigue and increasing safety. While material and physical appearance may vary, all sway bars serve the same purpose.

What does a sway bar do? 

The name sway bar can be a bit confusing, which is why some people refer to it as an anti-sway bar. The purpose of a sway bar is to limit how much your vehicle moves or sways while rounding a turn or a corner. As your car turns, it puts a lot of pressure on the suspension system, which can cause your car to sway, and in extreme instances, could cause your car to flip unexpectedly. 

Sway bars offset the force that is exuded on your suspension, and help to keep your vehicle stable. Basically, the sway bar is what keeps all four of your car's wheels on the ground, and prevents your car from flipping over in a turn.

When should you replace your sway bar?

Sway bars, and especially sway bar links, can wear out for a number of reasons. Most likely, the bushings in your sway bar assembly will wear out first.

Sway bars are vulnerable to the elements because of their location on your vehicle and can be prone to corrosion, especially if you live in an area with an extreme climate. In some cases, sway bar links and bushings can start to wear out as early as 60,000 miles. The rubber can degrade, dry out and crack, which would essentially render your sway bar ineffective.

If you have a problem with the sway bar or sway bar links in your vehicle, it is imperative to get it fixed as soon as possible. Driving in an unstable vehicle is not only uncomfortable, it can be extremely dangerous, especially at high speeds. 

Aside from the danger, problems with your sway bar can have a domino effect on other parts of your suspension, so it’s important to get any problem remedied. Taking care of any issue with your sway bar will save you stress, time, and money.

How can you tell if your sway bar is bad?

As with most modern cars, there will usually be an indicator light that illuminates if you have a problem with your sway bar. However, there are also some other indications that could let you know you might have a problem. Being aware of these signs can help you avoid a major or dangerous problem.

  • Trouble taking turns. As sway bar links loosen, you will find you have more trouble taking a turn. This is because the tires can’t keep a solid grip on the road, and will require more effort to turn your vehicle, which you will feel. While this is often a symptom of bad sway bar links, it can also happen when the bushings deteriorate.

  • Strange noises. Deterioration of the bushings is one of the main things that can cause your sway bar to fail. If your bushings or sway bar links are deteriorated, you will hear a rattling or squeaking noise that is more pronounced when you go over a bump.

  • Car swerving. A failing sway bar can reduce stability and traction. If you notice handling issues, or a decrease in the ability to control your car through a turn, you may have a problem.

  • Visibly worn out. Because of the location of the sway bar, sway bar links and bushings, everything can be easily inspected. The sway bar links will look worn out, and the bushings at the end of these links become hard, torn, or cracked. If the sway bar links become loose, you will be able to move them with your hand. Driving in this condition is dangerous, and you should get the issue fixed urgently.

What you should look for in a sway bar replacement

When it comes to sway bars, they are not all made to the same standards. If you’re invested in the safety of your vehicle, it’s critical that you use high-quality suspension parts that you can rely on. Here are a couple of things that are important to look for when replacing your sway bar.

  • Quality manufacturing. When it comes to manufacturing, some companies don’t have a lot of control over their standards. With manufacturers like Strutmasters, whose products are made in the USA, keeping a close eye on standards is much easier, and assures a quality product.

  • Good materials. Things that are made of cheap materials will break easily. Finding a manufacturer that uses long-lasting materials is important- it means you’re investing in a long-term solution.

  • Customer service. Buying from a company that supports you after your purchase means that if you ever have an issue, they are dedicated to making it right. It’s a good idea to buy your sway bar from a company that will help you if you ever have an issue. 

Strutmsters is a family business that has been around since 1999. With over two decades of manufacturing quality products built in the USA, the reputation has been well-earned.
