Swaybar

Swaybar

Also called an anti-roll bar or stabilizer bar, this suspension element is a long torsion bar (essentially a rod that can twist)mounted across the vehicle from one wheel to the wheel on the opposite side. By transferring movement and force from one side of the vehicle to the other, a sway bar can restrict body lean (or sway) during cornering. Vehicles may have sway bars in the front, rear or both locations.
