Sway bars are a great way to improve the handling of your Challenger because they reduce body roll without sacrificing ride comfort or the ability of your suspension to handle bumps and uneven road surfaces. Also known as anti-roll bars, these stabilizing suspension components work by connecting the wheels on each side of the car. During cornering, as forces build up on the outside wheel, this is transferred to the inside wheel and increases roll stiffness. This helps to increase the car’s ability to resist the body leaning over. In turn, there is less transfer of weight, and the car can corner flatter. By installing upgraded Challenger sway bars, you can tune the suspension of your vehicle to provide the level of grip and handling you need for your application. Another advantage of sway bars is that they can be used to modify the handling characteristics. In some conditions, you might want less roll stiffness. One extreme example of this os off-road vehicles, which might have their anti-roll bars disconnected to help them cope with the need for extreme axle articulation over irregular terrain. If you’re competing on a race track in very wet conditions, you might want to lessen the anti-roll stiffness to provide a more progressive feel and improve your ability to put the power down out of corners. Sway bars work together with links that connect them to your suspension. The links are typically attached to a control link or knuckle. The sway bar itself is fixed to the chassis of the car using sway bar bushings. Both sway bar bushings and sway bar links can degrade over time, and even break. The performance of your suspension can be restored or improved by replacing old sway bar bushings and sway bar links with new, upgraded parts.
