Qa1 52889 - Sway Bars - Any Good

Hi All

I am currently looking to update my sway bars on the my 2014 GT. I would like to keep to a budget of $400 for both front and rear. I came across QA1 52889 kit but cant find any reviews. Does anybody know anything about them. Are they any good?


Thanks

You don't need to do that. I was in the same boat, getting alot of body roll, and I have Pedders coil overs. Was looking at all the various kits out there but after I looked under my car I realized the stock sway bars are pretty stout so I just switched all the bushings to polyurethane and it made a huge difference, I even upgraded the rear sway bar links with a DIY hack and the car is handles so flat now. Best of all it only cost me about $60.....I would definitely reccomend this before you spend 100s on new bars....here is the vid I did for the front

Awesome video. If I was running stock springs I would try updating bushings as you suggest. Thanks for sharing

It's actually an anti-sway or anti roll bar. No one would put on a sway bar. lol
Just keep in mind that twist = (2 x torque x length) / (pi (3.14) x diameter4 x material modulus) when deciding what bar will work for you. Too stiff is bad because it will cause wheel lift on slow corners. Fewer tires on the ground causes sliding and understeer.
Also keep in mind that the stiffness of the mounting points is as great a factor as is the bar itself, also the shape of it makes a huge difference.
