Front Sway Bar
A sway bar is a solid bar that connects both sides of the suspension to the axle. Cars typically have two sway bars – one for the front and one in the rear. The sway bar is an important component of your suspension system and helps your vehicle resist leaning and rolling while you are completing a turn. It might also be referred to as an anti-sway bar, anti-roll bar, or stabilizer bar.
Signs of a bad front sway bar
- Suspension makes noise when going over bumps
- Excessive body lean when turning or cornering
Front Sway Bar Maintenance
The above signs may be caused by a bad sway bar, worn sway bar end links, or an issue with another part of the suspension.
