Sway bars {revisited} 9 years 4 months ago #70537

Ok I\'ve got the \'06 Cruiser which i understand came without sway bars.

At the moment I consider the car to wallow like a hippo in a mudbath through the twisty bits & I\'m trying to determine whether I need to get some installed - or if I should tattoo \"There\'s a reason it\'s called a cruiser\" onto the inside of my eyelids.

I\'m not planning on lowering the car as I think I like the look and really don\'t want to compromise clearance up here. I come across fallen lumps of tree far to often to mess about with that.

Anyone got an opinion?? :P

Cheers,

David.

I would recomend you go and have a talk to Sam at Mopar Motors in Thomastown,re Seats,Spats and Swaybars etc..I am pretty sure he has spats in stock and he has a few wrecks there that he has or is stripping..

It might be worth you getting in touch with Geoff.( Route66 )..He has just taken Spats off one car. he may be going to put them on the other car..But it would be worth asking..

Good advice there Magpie...

Strut bars (available at the best prices around from Aquaman) also help heaps...

You have a front sway (or anti-roll) bar, it was the rear one that got dropped.

I added a rear bar and also lowered just the rear, and both helped, and now with Michelin tyres, I handle curves very well, indeed.
Silver \'05 Limited w/turbo auto, sunroof; K&N FIPK, BTG Dual exhaust, E&G grill, lowered rear 1.5\", LED washer lights, catch can, Aoogah horn, sunroof deflector, hood struts, 7/8\" rear sway bar,...
