Front Sway Bar Replacement

The sway bar (or anti-roll bar) helps reduce vehicle lean during cornering. The center of the sway bar is attached to the chassis, and the ends of the sway bar are attached to the left and right front suspension.

How to Replace the Sway Bar

  1. Remove the mounting hardware and bushings from the chassis and suspension
  2. Replace the sway bar
  3. Reassemble the bushings, sway bar links, and hardware

The vehicle's steering and suspension systems—including the sway bar, bushings, and links—should be checked regularly. Experts recommend checking the systems at least once a year, when you have a complete annual wheel alignment.
