    Justin: What's up, everybody? Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here with Vaughn Gittin, Junior himself, and we're breaking down the RTR Tactical Performance front and rear adjustable sway bars and end links available for your S197 Mustang. Now, Vaughn, before we get into some of the details about the sway bars here, let's lay out what a sway bar does in your Mustang. Vaughn: Yeah, a sway bar is essentially a spring for the side-to-side movement of your car, so it helps the car in turns. It holds the car up and significantly reduces the amount of roll while turning aggressively. Justin: That's right. You might hear them called anti-roll bars, right? Vaughn: Exactly. Justin: There you go. Well, let's talk about these a little bit more in depth now. 27mm rear, 33mm front, what was the objective here with these bars? Vaughn: Yeah, for us, sway bars are inactive when you're just driving straight on the street. So going back to our whole philosophy of having a car that can be very comfortable on the street but also perform on the track, we use slightly softer springs than you would see traditionally with setups and a little bit stiffer and larger sway bars. That's because when you're driving on the street, you get the nice, comfortable ride with the soft springs. And as soon as you go to turn in, the springs start to roll, and the sway bars pick up the little bit of slack from the softer springs. So we get the best of both worlds. What we were trying to achieve, aside from a good ride quality, was being able to dial in the proper balance of the car for you, the guy who's behind the wheel. These bars give you a significant sweep of adjustment that will allow you to put understeer in your car just like it's come off the factory showroom floor. You can dial in a neutral balance into your car, which was what you would want for most tracks. And then my favorite, an oversteer balance, where you can slide around, have fun, and just get crazy behind the wheel. And we achieved that 100%, and I'm really pumped on them. Justin: Absolutely, man. And actually, we were with you doing some testing on these bars, and I got to ride with them firsthand. I could tell you, just from switching up some of the locations on the bars here, I witnessed that oversteer firsthand, or I witnessed the car push a little bit more through the turns. And it's funny, just from switching the bar back another notch or two here on the sway bar, it can have that big of an impact on your car's handling. Vaughn: Yeah, absolutely. And that was the goal. And make it easy. Just move the end links, and there you go. Justin: There you have it. Well, speaking of end links, you do have the option of picking up some adjustable end links here on the site. The rear bar does include end links, of course. And let's talk about this mounting hardware, man, because this thing is absolutely burly. What's going on with this? Vaughn: Yeah, so this is our rear bar mount for the axle, and these are billet mounts. Super heavy duty, anodized, will handle all the weather, and handle all the load that you put to them. One thing that you're never gonna hear is your sway bar mount bending or breaking when you have the car laid up in a corner. So we went super overkill, made some really strong, nice-looking mounts. And it's a solid package, and most importantly, it's functional. Justin: Absolutely, there you have it, guys. Definitely quality parts all around here. Install really isn't bad, about an hour per bar. Pretty basic stuff here as far as that's concerned. But again, if you ever have any questions, reach out to a Mustang expert any time. They'll be happy to walk you through it. So there you have it, guys. If you're looking to ditch some of the body roll and really dial in your optimal handling settings, the RTR Tactical Performance Sway Bar kit would be a great place to start. And you can grab yours right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Superior Handling Performance. Turn your S197 Mustang into a corner-carving machine by replacing that skinny weak rear factory sway bar with a 4-position adjustable RTR Tactical Performance Heavy Duty Sway Bar for superior handling, flatter cornering and decreased body roll. The RTR rear sway bar features a unique reverse-mounted design that helps reduce unsprung weight and allows additional clearance for wider tires.

    4 Position Adjustable. RTR designed their Tactical Performance Rear Sway Bar with four (4) adjustment positions which allows you to fine tune the handling balance of your S197 Mustang to suite your specific driving needs from mild to wild.

    Superior Construction. Manufactured from 1-3/32" (27mm) diameter solid spring steel for extra strength, this RTR Tactical Performance Rear Sway Bar performs as a spring more effectively than hollow, non-spring steel sway bars and is completed in a durable gray powder coat finish for impressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Application. The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Heavy Duty Rear Sway Bar is designed to fit 2005 to 2014 Mustang Coupes including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. Does not fit convertible models.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    I understand this sway bar wouldn't be as geared for drag racing as the BMR anti roll sway bar, but would this bar, in the correct configuration help with straight line acceleration and power to the wheels?

    • The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Sway Bar is primarily designed to reduce body roll and increase handling, however due to its stiffer nature compared to stock, and the heavy duty axle brackets, this will help this bar to offer slightly increased straight line traction by helping to control the axle's tendency to "react" to the engine torque. This effect will be minimal with this bar, and if straight line performance and traction are what you are after, a drag race style anti roll bar would be the better bet.

    Will this fit a 13 GT convertible?

    • The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Sway Bar w/ Heavy Duty Axle Brackets is designed for the 05-14 coupes. It will not fit properly on a convertible.

    Is the sway bar supposed to come with High Performance Bushing Lubricant (as mine did not)? If not, is it recommended to lubricate the two supplied bushings before putting them on? What would be the recommended type of lubricant?

    • The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Sway Bar does not include any grease with it. Lubricating the bushings is not required, but if you choose to do so, you would want to use a non petroleum based grease to prevent breakdown of the bushings.

    The review/installation video shows the logo on the part, but the photos do not. Curious if it actually has the RTR logo or is just a generic looking gray bar.

    • This sway bar will come with the RTR logo on it. If you scroll down the page, you will find some customer submitted photos of the sway bar with the logo.

    I have lowered springs (1 1/2"). Will this sway bar create any clearance issues? My GT doesn't have a rear sway bar. Will all mounting points be there anyway?

    • The RTR Tactical Performance Adjustable Rear Sway Bar w/ Heavy Duty Axle Brackets (05-14 All) will not cause any clearance issues on a 1.5" lowered suspension. However, each car setup will vary due to driving style, wheels and the road condition that you drive on. Also, the mounting points for this sway bar will be the same.

      Adds a better sense of stability over stock. Can't compare it to other aftermarkets though, other than price

      Great addition!

      The install wasn't too hard with the help of my friend and some garage tools and a Jack and Jack stands. The only concern I have is with the front sway bar there is a squeaking noise coming from my sway bar as I hit bumps, everything is tightened. I had even put on the lock nuts to the sway bar and I'm still hearing noises. Thank you rtr!

      Excellent Mod

      Like many other people I was experiencing a loud banging sound coming from the rear of my car every time I hit a bump.... the factory rear swaybar end links had worn out in under 30k miles so I finally decided to upgrade to this RTR sway bar! It is a great product and it fixed my issue with the noise! Not only that it stiffened up the rear of the car beautifully and you can really feel it in the corners! I highly recommend this product! Get rid of that poorly built stock sway bar immediately!

      RTR Rear Sway Bar Kit.

      Great product! The axle brackets were much heavier than the original sway bar kit installed on my RTR.

      Great Fix for a Poor OEM Part

      I bought this as a replacement to the OEM sway bar I had on my GT/CS. The OEM part has a bushing that is notorious for going bad (causing a knocking sound from the rear) and after 93,000 miles I had to take in 3 times to get it fixed. The poor quality bushings inevitably began to make the car understeer significantly so it was due time for an outright replacement. The RTR sway bar is definitely the way to go and I personally feel the mounting of this bar is much better than OEM. It also looks great and I noticed a much stiffer response to taking tight turns quickly than I had before. You really feel the car hugging the ground much better than it does with the OEM sway bar. One word of advice if you install this yourself, the instructions are worthless so look up pictures from other installers to figure this thing out; it's pretty simple after you do. I'm 95 certain the instructions I was given were for a front sway bar and not the rear.

      No corner to sharp

      I'm a small guy and going through corners when I go on a fun drive, I would slide around in my seat because the Cabin would lean something horrible. The stock v6 sway bars are weak compared to the Gt's. After I install this I'm not sliding around anymore and I feel much more confident taking corners. Shipping was fast even with the holiday over the weekend. I couldn't ask for more.

      LOOKS WONDERFUL! PERFORMS EVEN BETTER

      I was skeptical when purchasing the RTR rear sway bar given it was more expensive than other sway bars. I wasn't sure if the extra money to be worth it but it is. The quality is exceptional with the powder coating. Performance is all that you could ask for with the adjust-ability from around stock (under-steer) to stiff (over-steer). I had no idea that the rear sway bar could make that much of a difference. Mind blown! I went with the RTR rear bar because I wanted to try out the RTR equipment and given the gains I wouldn't go any other way!!!! I use my mustang in AutoX and Track days and this is one of the best mods I have put on my car so far suspension wise.
