Whiteline Sway Bar:
As the name suggests their objective is to reduce
sway, or body roll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral (cornering) forces.
Formula 1 cars still use sway bars along side the shocks and springs as it is
the ONLY suspension component principally designed to control body roll.
Unfortunately, many aftermarket spring manufacturers still design their lowered
springs too hard, trying to control body roll when it’s the sway bars
The fitting of bigger Whiteline Swaybars is still the best dollar
for dollar handling improvement you can make.
Why? First, while car
manufacturers appreciate the role the sway bar plays in vehicle control, safety
and comfort, their standard bars, like the vehicles they are fitted to, are
built to a compromise of price, performance and comfort. Secondly, handling and
suspension design is an evolutionary process with constant
Whiteline Swaybars are at the cutting edge of this process
through their close association with motorsport. We understand the new
technologies and design products to put your car at the very front of handling
development. Cornering loads are spread more evenly across the tyres delivering
more grip and frankly, that’s what it’s all about. You also get improved tyre
wear as your tyres stay flatter and more upright. Comfort improves because your
car sits flatter through bends meaning less movement inside the

Swaybars are manufactured using the finest grade Australian spring steel. They
are powder coated and supplied with high performance Synthetic Elastomer
mounting bushes in a DIY kit form, ready to simply bolt on.
Adjustable Sway Bars*
Adjustable sway bars allow their stiffness to be
altered by increasing or reducing the length of the lever arms. This permits the
roll stiffness to be tuned for different situations without replacing the entire
bar. The stiffer the bar, the more force required to move the left and right
wheels relative to each other. This increases the amount of force required to
make the body roll.
Whiteline adjustable sway bars offer from 2 up to 4
points of adjustment allowing in some cases 10 distinct stiffness settings for
precise handling bias adjustment. The Whiteline Blade is available across a huge
range of applications.
Whiteline Swaybars are part of the Whiteline
handling system. Designed to match and integrate with Chassis Bracing and key
alignment products to deliver a fully balanced handling solution. Adjustable
sway bars allow their stiffness to be altered by increasing or reducing the
length of the lever arms.
So without reducing comfort, a Whiteline
Swaybar will make your suspension system and tyres perform better, making the
car more responsive while delivering more grip.
