Sway Bar Link Kit

We have 4,230 Items for Sway Bar Link Kit In-stock.

Rolling and swaying is good-only when you're on the dance floor. But if you're in your car, it's not pleasant at all. Try riding in a car with a poor and defective sway bar link and see if you don't end up seriously nauseated. If you never want to experience nauseating rides, investing in a new Sway Bar Link Kit is the most practical thing to do. The sway bar link is a small component in your car's steering and suspension systems. Although it's small, its function is a great fit for your car's comfort and manageability. Located at the end of the front or rear sway bar, the link works with the sway bar to reinforce the suspension system and to prevent excessive body roll. It is through this part that your car is able to resist excessive movements during sharp turns and bends. When your car starts to bend during a turn, the sway bar link assists the sway bar in lifting the inner wheel to keep the vehicle balanced. As long as the sway bar link is in tiptop condition, you can have a comfortable drive even if you encounter rough and bumpy roads. Hugging curves will never be the same again. Always remember that a high-quality Sway Bar Link Kit can do wonders for your car's handling. The good news is, Auto Parts Warehouse has an array of premium sway bar link kits that you can avail of at very affordable prices. So get one now!

What to Look For when Shopping for a Sway Bar Link Kit

Without a properly functioning sway bar link, your vehicleís wheels can easily lean too much on the right or left when turning around a corner. Youíll also hear loud clunking noises when making turns if this suspension component wears out. Fortunately, replacing it is easy. You just need to get your hands first on a top-grade sway bar link kit. To make sure that what you get is up to your standards and fits your budget, here are some things to you should look for in a replacement kit:

All-metal construction

If you want to get the best deal for your budget, choose a sway bar link kit that features an all-metal construction for its various components. This type of construction is known for its durability and reliability despite years of exposure to extreme conditions.

Powder-coat finish

No matter how durable a steel component is, it will easily deteriorate once it starts to corrode. So to complement an all-metal construction, go for a kit that features a powder-coat finish. This type of finish increases a metal componentís corrosion resistance, helping it endure exposure to extreme conditions for many years.

Easy-to-grease socket design

Because the sway bar link is a part of your carís suspension system, itís regularly exposed to vibration and heavy loads. To keep it in top shape, you need to regularly lubricate it. And with an easy-to-grease socket, lubricating a sway bar link becomes a hassle-free task.

Innovative design for easier installation

Some manufacturers today have come up with their own innovations to make installing a sway bar link kit easier. If youíre an amateur DIYer or you just want to make your life easier, go for a replacement sway bar that features a cleverly designed barrel nut, additional threads, and recessed bushings. These upgrades are meant to get rid of installation issues such as a poorly exposed thread and hard-to-capture washers. However, make sure that a specially designed kit is also suitable to your carís specs. Keep in mind that the design and position of a sway bar link may differ according to your vehicleís make and model.

Get Rid of that Clunking Noise by Installing a New Sway Bar Link Kit

Do you hear clunking noises whenever you drive over road bumps or turn around a corner? Then you better check your carís sway bar link. This suspension component helps in reducing excessive sways, helping you keep from rolling over in case of a sudden evasive maneuver. So before a busted link makes it too difficult for you to control your vehicle when making sharp or sudden turns, replace it as soon as you can. Hereís how (Instructions are not vehicle specific, so check with your car manual first.):

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools youíll need:

  • Penetrating oil or lubricant
  • Socket wrench
  • Jack and jack stands
  • Vice grips
  • Lug wrench

Step 1: Loosen the lug nuts. Using a tire iron or lug wrench, loosen the lug nuts but donít remove them yet from the wheel.

Step 2: Lift up your vehicle. Jack up your car by properly installing a jack and jack stands underneath. Make sure to place the jack securely under the suspension arm in order to compress the suspension and release tension from the sway bar link.

Step 3: Unscrew the lug nuts. Once the car is properly jacked up, remove the lug nuts and the wheel with the bad link.

Step 4: Unscrew the link nuts. The sway bar link is usually held in place by top and bottom nuts. Using a socket wrench, remove the top nut. To prevent the sway bar from moving around, grip the shaft with a vice grip tool. Then remove the bottom bolt with a socket wrench.

Step 5: Attach the new sway bar link. Start by inserting the lower part first. Then once the lower part is secure, insert the upper part in place. Make sure that the link is installed just like the original one. Tighten the top and bottom nuts, ensuring that the rubber seals for each bolt are evenly compressed.

Installation tips

  • If the nuts are hard to remove, spray them first with some penetrating oil or lubricant to loosen them up.
  • To dislodge a stuck sway bar link, tap it with a sledge hammer until it pops off.
