Steeda adjustable sway bar kits are designed and manufactured exclusively by Steeda in the USA to the highest possible standards, Steeda Front Sway Bars withstand the rigors of high performance racing whole providing the performance and handling benefits you want without degrading ride quality for street use.
Steeda's 1 3/8 inch diameter front sway bar is a direct bolt on for your S197 Mustang and features 3 adjustment positions for fine tuning of handling balance. This sway bar provides a 10% to 85 percent increase in roll stiffness depending on the size of your O.E. front sway bar. Steeda's sway bar features our unique and patented welded billet ends instead stamping the ends like competitive designs.
The rear sway bar is made from solid 25mm diameter steel tubing and is a direct replacement of the factory bar providing an increase in roll stiffness of twenty five percent. Billet sway bar ends and polyurethane bushings also are included. Together the sway bars will decrease overall body roll and reduce vehicle understeer. Both sway bars have matching powdercoated finish for looks and corrosion resistance. Track tested and race proven on our own 2011-12 Mustang!
Our sway bars have machined steel billet sway bar ends, whereas others on the market have coined ends. What does this mean? Our sway bar ends are machined out of billet steel round stock, in-house, on our multi-axis CNC lathes and go through hundreds of computer simulations to ensure the ultimate in strength and performance - this provides greater resistance to bending stresses, and has three major advantages:
- These parts are less prone to cracking/fatigue failure on the ends themselves.
- It also reduces unwanted deflection in the sway bar end. Excess deflection creates unwanted geometry changes, which physically changes your sway bar stiffness to a non-ideal rate.
- With less unwanted deflection, our bars will 'wear out’ slower - any spring will eventually become softer over time as it is cycled through its life, our bars will maintain their designed rate for longer with less unwanted deflection.
Our bar rates are developed and optimized through advanced vehicle dynamic simulation and through extensive real-world testing. We engineered these bars to control the vehicles' roll stiffness properly while still allowing you to run softer springs. This optimizes your overall grip and balance of the vehicle while still allowing you to maintain exceptional ride quality.
Note: V6 models come with a 28mm front sway bar for an 85%-90% increase in roll stiffness. V8 GT and GT500 models are equipped with a 34mm front sway bar for a 10%-15% increase in roll stiffness.
- Adjustable stiffness
- Decreased body roll
- Race proven and track tested
