Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the SR Performance Adjustable Sway Bar Kit for 2005 to 2010 GT and V6 Mustangs. The SR Performance Adjustable Sway Bar Kit's gonna be a good option for someone that's look to gain some handling performance at a fraction of the price of other brands.Sway bars, in general, tend to be one of the most cost-effective handling upgrades. They provide a lot of benefits, such as less body roll for better all-around handling, and they aren't as expensive as other suspension mods. The easiest way for me to explain how a sway bar works is to imagine a car that's taking a corner. As the car's cornering, the weight of the car is pushed outwards towards the outer tires. This weight compresses the suspension on the outside of the car and decompresses the suspension on the inside. The sway bar counteracts as compression and decompression. The weight transfer creates a twisting force in the sway bar, so the sway bar creates a flatter handling experience.There are a few things that affect how much force a sway bar has or how effective it's going to be. The thickness of the bar and its composition are going to play a big role. And these bars from SR Performance are tubular, which is nice because you'll get the strength like you would with a solid bar, but without the weight. This is aircraft grade steel, and the front bar is 35-millimeter and the rear bar is 22-millimeter, which are big upgrades over the factory bars. These are also powder-coated black, so they are gonna have corrosion resistance as well. Another factor that's gonna affect how well a sway bar works is the geometry of the bar. The sway bar has bends in different angles, but the key is gonna be the length of the lever arm. This is the lever arm right here, and this bar is three-way adjustable. You can see the adjustment points right here, and having this bar be three-way adjustable means that you have a longer lever arm. Depending on how you adjust the bar in install, you're changing the geometry of the bar. The shorter the lever arm is, the greater torque and more force that the bar will have. This is what you're adjusting when you're moving between these holes here, the amount of force and torque that will be applied to that outside control arm in order to decompress the outside suspension. The end link bushings are also going to affect the sway bar. These bars only come with rear end links, but the front is important as well. The more rigid the bushings and the end links are, the more rigid the bars will be because they will not be allowed to move as much. The softer the bushings are, the more movement the bar will have and the less effective it will be. So if you're just gonna reuse your factory end links, you can expect the soft rubber factory bushings to allow more movement in the front bar. I'd recommend picking up an aftermarket set with poly bushings if you have a street car. You have to keep in mind that your factory bushings could be older at this point, and you don't wanna lose any of the effectiveness of the bars.The last thing I wanted to talk about when it comes to sway bar effectiveness is that suspension travel is going to affect the sway bar. When I say suspension travel, I'm mostly referring to the spring rates. The sway bars and the springs are gonna work very closely together, like all suspension parts do. Spring rates are gonna change the amount of compression or decompression that occurs within the suspension, so of course, these two components are gonna work hand-in-hand. So just remember that when you're shopping for springs or if you already have springs. The basic rule of thumb is that sway bar thickness should increase as static spring rates increase and vice versa.When it comes to fitment, these sway bars are gonna work on all 2005 to 2010 Mustangs, including coupes and convertibles, the GT, the V6, and the Bullitt model as well. The only model they won't work on is the GT500.As far as price, you're looking at spending a little under $400 for this kit, which is the most affordable option that you can pick up. Now there are other options on the site that have different materials or different adjustability or different thickness, so just make sure you're shopping in the range of materials, thickness, and adjustability that you need for your setup and how you want your car to perform.The install for these sway bars is not difficult at all, and you're looking at spending about two hours to get it done and a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You need a handful of different tools, but nothing crazy. And as usual, a lift would really help here, but the job can be done on stands if you don't have access to one. The old sway bars are gonna need to be removed, but that's just a few bolts. Now I'd recommend greasing any new bushings well prior to the install since waiting until after everything's installed will make that process much more difficult. The new bars install the same way the old bars came out, so no surprises there.Wrapping things up here, the SR Performance Sway Bar Kit includes a front adjustable bar and a rear fixed bar that are tubular in design and thicker in diameter than the factory bars for more rigidity. This kit's made to help with cornering handling by keeping the suspension flat and even. You can check it out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improves Handling. Improve the handling performance of your S197 Mustang with a SR Performance Sway Bar Kit. Sway Bars, sometimes referred to as Anti Roll Kits, reduce body roll through increased design stiffness over the factory bars. The result is superior handling, flatter cornering and better stability in any driving situation.

3-Way Adjustable. This SR Performance Front Sway Bar features three (3) adjustment positions for fine tuning the handling balance of your Pony to suite your driving needs from mild to wild.

Superior Quality and Materials. SR Performance manufactures their Sway Bars from cold-formed, high-strength aircraft-grade steel for precision performance, and completes them in a black powder coat finish for great looks and long life. The front bar is a 35mm diameter tubular design, where the rear bar is 22mm diameter solid design.

Application. This SR Performance Sway Bar Kit is designed for use on 2005 to 2010 coupe and convertible Mustangs, including the V6, GT, and Bullitt models. Does not fit Shelby GT500.

      Can these rear sway bar end links be removed and replaced with BMR poly end links? these end links don't appear to be removable?

      Just bought this product and waiting for it to arrive. Are there instructions on how to set it to the stiffest settings for the front? This will be my second year autocrossing and I'm trying to reduce the amount of "plowing" my car does in corners.

      • The optimal setup on the front bar will depend on how the rest of the suspension is set up. It is recommended to try each of the 3 holes on the bar and check which is best for your setup

          Great Bars !!!

          Amazing improvement from stock sway bars. Cornering is amazing and turns as well. More aggressive driving is enjoyable and feels a lot stiffer. Only Drawback is that it uses metal plates in the rear which will cause a lot of clunking noise and metal noises in the rear. Either try to fit some kind of bushing between the plate and strut brace or grease it really well.

          NOT compatible with convertibles

          I ordered this kit because it was the only one that said fits all coupes and convertibles. The front sway bar went on easily, but after spending hours trying to make the rear fit(with no real instruction) I gave up and put the old sway bar back on. Trying to get a refund or replacement but was told i have to send pictures of the install not fitting! I also installed coilovers and steeda bump steer kit, panhard bar and brakes. the coilovers made it ride rough so cant really give a performance rating on the sway bar.

          Installed with jack and stands in garage, took about 3 hours while taking some breaks.. Massive improvements gained, plus I added the strut tower brace to the front with this. I recommend front bar on stiffest setting unless you want to slide around a lot with oversteer!

          so much better

          My car is not lowered and is still on the stock springs, but man can i say these sway bars make a huge difference compared to the loose stock feeling my car had going into turns. Now i can say that feeling is mostly gone now and is so much tighter around the corners, and i cant complain about the price because i got mine on sale for half the original price so that was a steal, so in the end if you have a stock suspension go ahead and get a pair already.

          This set is soo much more structurally soynd than the OEM. Took around thirty minutes to install on my own. Sway bar is nice and think, and much heavier than stock as well.

          great upgrade!!!

          Installed this with the SR Adjustable end links and what a difference. I already had lowering springs and they helped handling quite a bit but this just tightened everything up. As a bonus it fixed my front end clunking, which, after looking at my stock end links was caused by my lack of any bushing remaining. All in all a great upgrade. Installed on a lift and it took about 1.5 hours.

          Better than stock

          I bought these for the price. I figured I would give them a try. I was not disappointed. The physical difference side by side is very evident. It took me and my buddy about 2 hours to install on the ground. when installing the rear sway bar and links, I recommend jacking up the rear end and not doing one side at a time. This saved some time when you tighten everything up. You can do it once and be done. You do not want the bushings to get bound up. I took it for a spin and noticed my boat felt more like a mustang. I am able t take turns faster and really dive into a corner. Up next lowering springs upper and lower control arms along with struts and shocks. These cars respond very well with aftermarket upgrades the stock suspension is very sloppy and clunky.

          Pretty Good

          This is a good product. Haven't installed the front one yet, so this is regarding the rear. I did notice a difference in the handling, although my old one had a broken end link for I don't know how long. The product looked beefier than the original, especially the end links. Better bushings, too. The one thing I didn't really like is the new mounting hardware on the rear bar - the original locked the wheel location bushings in place, where this new one is based on tightening to keep it from slipping. But, after some driving around I noticed that they hadn't moved at all, so all is good. Installation is not too bad. I installed the rear one while jacking it up on one side (jack stand under the axle for safety). The more room you give yourself, the better, of course. Took less than a couple hours including finding the right tools and clean up. Will need metric sockets and deep sockets to remove original (15mm I think).

          It is ehat it says it is

          The product was installed by my local tire muffler alignment shop, and it does exactly what is says it does... However, be warned, your bushing are rubber junk, and with every red, bump, tight turn, my car now sounds like a squeaky and embarrassing pile of garbage... This is the second item of several I've bought from American muscle that I've had issues with. The bushings are junk... The car handles amazing, and the seat bar does do everything it is meant to do, it just does so in a very obnoxious and loud, squeaking manner. Please note that you'll have to, or should, purchase some different less squeaky and embarrassing bushings for every mounting point on this thing, no way these bushing will last... I will be calling American muscle with this issue as well as the ft style fog light grille kit, which is my most regrettable purchase... Again, not American muscle at fault, just a cheaply made sub par bushing kit included with this thing... Save the money and buy a different one with polyurethane bushing and save yourself the embarrassment!!!!

          Why Pay More??

          I'd already lowered my '06, changed dampers, and put on a set of staggered AMR's with Mickeys. The improvement wqs substantial and I was skeptical about any more upgrades to handling but these bars were the icing on the cake. This thing is like a go-kart now. The annoying body roll is no longer noticeable, transitions are stable. I no longer feel like a fast left-right is a "throw it, then catch it" exercise. Installation was easier than expected. I used jack stands and did the front one morning and the rear the next although they could be done in an afternoon by someone 15 years younger than me. There seem to be a number of sway bar kits on the market for way more dollars than these but unless you are a VERY hard core track day fanatic I cannot imagine any detectable improvement from the high priced kits.
