Designed to be the Best
  
Before
 
Before ADDCO Anti-Sway Bars With a typical stock suspension, not only will you experience body roll, but your vehicle will understeer and "plow" through corners.
After
 
After ADDCO Anti-Sway Bars With the simple addition of ADDCO Anti-Sway bars, you will notice a drastic improvement in handling substantially less body roll and better balance.
The Problem
Let's face it, most decisions made by the automakers are based on one factor - cost. Without a doubt, it's less expensive to manufacture and install smaller anti-sway bars, or in some cases, leave them off completely!
Our stock suspension does an adequate job in most situations. Where you may run into a problem (no pun intended) is when you need to make a sudden lane change to avoid an accident or when you find that curve in the road is a little sharper than you thought. As you vehicle begins to turn, the body will " roll" transferring weight to the outside wheels. This causes the front end to "plow", or what is technically known as understeer. The result - your vehicle wants to keep going straight and you're out of control!
  ADDCO Anti-Sway Bar  
The Solution
With the addition of a set of ADDCO anti-sway bars, body roll and understeer will be greatly reduced resulting in a safer, more balanced suspension.

       Examples of Steer
Neutral Steer
The front and rear of the vehicle will drift an equal amount and you will end up close to the starting point (actually, you will end up a little further out since the front and rear are drifting the same).
Understeer
Front tire drift causes the vehicle to refuse to turn as sharply as the direction of the wheels are pointed. If the wheels and the throttle are held steady, the vehicle will make an ever widening circle.
Oversteer
Rear tire drift is greater than that of the front and the rear tends to "spin out". The vehicle will end up closer to the center of the circle because the rear tire drift changes the direction inward.
Tire Drift
The transfer of weight to the outside front wheel with an inadequate front or rear bar distorts the tires so they actually drift sideways during cornering.
Bigger is not Always Better
Even a small increase in bar diameter provides a major increase in anti-sway bar effectiveness. Play it safe and stick with ADDCO's recommendations to achieve the level of handling you desire.
