Installation of Steeda's 7/8" solid alloy steel rear sway bar will improve steering response, reduce understeer and improve overall handling balance. This bar provides approximately 50% increase in rear roll stiffness.
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: Will NOT fit convertibles. Owners of convertibles will need to use the sway bar kit with end links, part #555-1020. V6 owners without a factory rear bar must use part #555-1052.
- Better handling with more stable cornering, while maintaining factory ride quality
- Excellent bang-for-the-buck suspension piece
- Made in USA in House by Steeda
