Sway bars or — more accurately — anti-roll bars are designed to resist a vehicle’s tendency to pitch from side to side while cornering.

In today’s video, the vehicle-stability experts at Hellwig explain how sway bars improve a vehicle’s cornering ability to improve both comfort and safety.

Whether you’re driving a muscle car, truck, towing rig, or RV, sway bars are a relatively simple installation, and an ideal first upgrade for those wanting to improve stability and performance in their ride.
