Steeda's Explorer adjustable rear sway bar gives you control of your Explorer's handling. The sway bar reduces body roll for more neutral handling, allowing you to carve corners with your SUV. The sway bar offers a comfortable ride for your SUV but keeps things level through corners.

Stability and control. Distributing the weight of your Explorer between the rear wheels when turning, the sway bar helps to keep your SUV level in corners and planted to the road. Trailer sway is reduced when towing and control is better with heavy payloads, so you can drive with confidence.

Strong construction. Steeda's sway bar is designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA and is made from a 1 inch solid steel bar for long-lasting performance and durability. By comparison, the Explorer ST sway bar is 7/8 inch diameter. CNC-machined billet steel ends offer greater strength than the coined ends on other bars. The bar is powder-coated Steeda blue for protection from the elements and to let people know your Explorer is equipped with Steeda parts.

Sporty feel. The flat and level handling that the sway bar provides makes driving more exciting and enjoyable. Corner carve with your Explorer and get tight handling like a sports car with the upgraded sway bar. 3-way adjustability lets you fine-tune the sway bar stiffness to meet your needs and provide the control you want.

  • Made in the USA
  • Neutral and flat handling

  • Less trailer sway when towing

CA Residents: Cancer and Reproductive Harm WARNING

Hi everybody Brian from featuring our Rear Adjustable Sway Bar for the 2020 and later Ford Explorer. Since it was first released the Ford Explorer has been extremely popular and with good reason. We're certain that if you look around your neighborhood let alone your own garage there is likely an Explorer or two or three and again this is with good reason. The vehicle is a great size, it tows well, it hauls well, it fits people well, it does everything really well. For the 2020 model they made a departure from a front-wheel drive chassis to a rear-wheel drive bias chassis. Now it's available in rear-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive but it has completely shifted the balance of the vehicle. Despite being developed from the Ford Ranger chassis with some obvious differences and a rear-wheel drive bias, the Explorer leaves some opportunities as far as handling towing ability and payload capacity or at least being able to drive comfortably with that payload. So we wanted to explore some opportunities to improve this. Steeda started right away by pushing the limits of the Explorer. Seeing how it would do towing, Seeing how it would do with payload. Seeing how it would do through the twisties in south Georgia. Now one of the things that we wanted to do was find a way to get it to tow better, handle payload better and be more fun through the twisties. What ended up happening was the development of the Rear Sway Bar. Otherwise known as an Anti-Roll Bar, a Stabilizer Bar or as Dario likes to say a Rear Stay Bar. Adding the Steeda Adjustable Rear Sway Bar is going to improve the vehicle in a number of ways. One of those is the handling characteristics. It's going to help you dial out the inherent understeer that we talked about from the factory. This means more fun and more smiles as you're going through the twisties. It's also going to help anti-sway when you're towing and it's adjustable so this means that you can adjust it if you know you're going to have a heavier payload or tongue weight versus when you're just driving on the street without anybody else with you and nothing behind you. So if you're towing your watercraft to the local lake, or your car to the local race track you have a lot more stability especially at highway speeds and this means confidence. This means more relaxed driving. More enjoyment when you've got your pride and joy behind you. This also holds true when you're hauling or have a payload going and because it's adjustable you can set it up to the balance whether it be for tongue weight and trailer weight or for whatever it is that you're hauling. Maybe it's trip to the hardware store and you're picking up a lot of stuff. What ultimately happens is the rear springs can be overburdened. The Rear Sway Bar or Anti-Roll Bar, Stabilizer Bar will help assist against that. To handle anything that you are planning to throw at your Explorer this is constructed of one-inch solid steel and utilizes billet steel ends for strength that are CNC cut for precision and then perimeter welded to the full one inch diameter of the bar for strength. This is the strongest bar on the market, bar none. All of the necessary mounting hardware is included, from the brackets to the bushings. To the bolts, washers as well as the grease for the polyurethane bushings. Installation is pretty straightforward but you have to take your time and allow a little bit of time because the exhaust does need to be lowered. We do have an installation video which highlights that more. Speaking of videos, if you enjoyed the content of this definitely click Subscribe and explore some of our other videos.

Now something else that's really important about this is like so many of our other products is making this right in Valdosta Georgia in the USA, because Speed Matters!

We took a calculated gamble and used this sway bar on our 2022 Lincoln Aviator Black Label. It fits great as expected and the rear end is much more planted. It's AWESOME!

Steeda rear sway bar
I found the product itself to be extremely well built. It is much more stout then the stock bar. I will say my only complaint came from not applying enough grease to the bushings and now I have a slight squeak. I will have to remove it and apply more. But aside from the user error when installing this bar is amazing. Can't wait to use it with my lowering springs.

Good and Easy Install
Highs: The vehicle definitely feels more planted, but reviews make it feel like its night and day. if you drive your ST hard then I think you will be able to feel a pretty solid difference. If you do not drive you ST hard, honestly, it may not be worth buying, you will really only notice a difference when you are pushing you are trying to take curves/bends faster. Lows: The ST's accent color is RED not blue. I understand blue is steeda's color. but plenty of other items have color options. Since I want my car to feel complete I took the additional time to get my sway bar powder coated RED to match the already RED emblems and calipers. this put the total cost of the sway bar at $400 for me. Its a good product but the color option doesn't make sense, and I know I am not the only one that felt this way and I'm not the only one to change the color. Install Tips: First off here are some tips if you've never replaced one. Either wait till you've already installed the after market exhaust or do it at the same time. The exhaust is a full assembly and its heavy. You will have to remove the thing to really be able to get to the sway bar anyway. Might as well kill two birds with one stone. If you have an aftermarket exhaust then youll have the benefit of being able to only remove the mufflers. Also for those of you who may not have replaced a sway bar before. On this vehicle there is no need for a hoist/jack or lift of any kind. You do not need to remove wheels to access the end links. there is plenty of room at the back of the car.

Great Purchase
This sway bar is high quality and larger and heavier than the stock bar. Staight forward install and improved handling (I use the center hole) is well worth the install. Combined with the H&R springs the ride and handling of my ST is awesome!

Worth every penny
I have had my eye on this sway bar since before I bought my 2021 ST. The difference in handling is night and day. I have mine set to the highest setting. The feel in the corners when accelerating is so much smoother. Springs are next as soon as they come in tomorrow. Will write another review once I get them installed and get a feel for the package deal.

Great Product
The sway bar itself is pretty heavy duty and it show in the results! It improved the feel of the vehicle a noticeable amount and I enjoy driving my ST even more then before! I only rated at 4 stars because the first bar arrived damaged and it took far longer to get the replacement than I thought it should have. I do realize the times we live in are different than they were a couple years ago, but, I still felt it took way too long!

Don't drive without it !
A must have for the ST. I push mine hard and this really helps reduce body sway. The OE bar is way to soft. This corrects the issue. Combined with the Steeda lowering springs, the ST truly shines.

Great Upgrade for ST
Coupled with the H&R springs, this SUV handles completely different. Body roll almost non-existent, handling greatly improved and overall promotes a vastly improved driver experience. Took 1 hour to get installed at a local shop. Highly recommend.

A welcome upgrade! This bar is beefy. Parts are high quality. Fitment is perfect. Install time was hour and a half for me. Thank you Steeda for the install instructions. Will go well with my Steeda springs.
