Sway bars are a critical part of your vehicle's suspension, but they can be difficult to understand.
The sway bar works in conjunction with the spring and shock absorber to control body lean during cornering maneuvers, which is important for all vehicles but especially important for larger vehicles such as motor coaches and RV's.
A sway bar reduces body roll by transferring some of the weight from one side of the vehicle to another to keep the vehicle level and minimize body roll. This helps stabilize steering while increasing handling performance.
There are three main components of the sway bar system.
- Sway bar link
- Sway bar bushing
- Sway bar/torsion bar
