By David Sturtz, April 15, 2008

The sway bar is a solid bar that connects both sides of the suspension for a given axle. Its job is to lessen the amount of vehicle lean while cornering.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Rear Sway Bar

  • Suspension may make an abnormal noise when going over bumps
  • Vehicle may have excessive body lean when cornering

Rear Sway Bar Related Repair Advice

  • Unless other suspension components must be removed, replacing the sway bar, its bushings, and/or end links should not result in the need for a wheel alignment
