Your front sway bar helps your vehicle's suspension performance. The main purpose is to reduce body roll when going through a turn at speed. Over time the end links, bushings, brackets, ball & socket joints can wear causing loose connections, or even come apart and fall off.

The original sway bar that this kit replaces was hollow, which over time will cause the stabilizer bar to develop dangerous pin holes. Once the pin holes start, there is nothing that can stop the eventual failure of this bar.

The sway bar that comes in this kit is solid, so no worries in the future of pin holes or rot through.

This set has the following specifications:

  • Solid design
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Fits in the front of the vehicle
  • Fits only FWD (Front wheel drive) vehicles
    • Does not fit 4WD (4 Wheel Drive) Models

Perfect fitting complete sway bar kit.
I have watched many A1 auto videos for installation help and they always say presented with hope you will consider them for parts purchase. Their price was comparable to the local chain store so I ordered the kit. It arrived quickly and with all the pieces we needed for replacement. Highly recommended based on this purchase and their installation knowledge. Will use from now on. :-)

Fits Perfectly
After my original broke; I bought the bar because of watching the youtube video of 1aauto showing how to install it. This bar is 3x heavier than the original, but that's because it's solid and the original was hollow. Good product, easy install, great customer service.

Do I need to loosen the pinch bolt when replacing the sway bar. 2006 Impala??
Jeffrey L on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The front sub fram bolts take them out but put a jack under it first and let it down with the jack just around a inch maybe just enough to let you slide it in then jack back up put bolts back in before going on just for safety. Hope this helps.
