ZZP 3800 Front Sway Bar

SKU: ZZ-FSWBR-38

$79.99 Sale price

Regular price $79.99

Once you add some basic handling mods such as lowering springs, upgraded struts, better tires, etc, it becomes increasingly important to consider upgrading your sway bars. As you improve the ability of your car to stick to the road, you will notice an increase in body roll (or sway/lean). This is where a stiffer/larger sway bar setup becomes beneficial. Sway bars work by distributing the upward/downward force of the car evenly from left to right, in an attempt to keep the car level (eliminate the heavy lean, or body roll while turning) the factory sway bars are sufficient for a factory suspension/tire setup, but once you change things out, they are no longer enough. This is where the larger diameter/stiffer sway bars come in, they will help keep all 4 tires planted firmly on the pavement, and drastically improve your cars handling ability.

Sway bar 101: This is assuming you have a properly setup front/rear spring rate and good shocks/struts...  For example, lets say you are coming into a corner fast and want to make the turn.  If the car tends to understeer (front pushes/does not turn) you will want to increase the rear sway bar stiffness.  People generally prefer oversteer (rear swings out) in a corner in a front wheel drive car because you can always accelerate out to control the amount of oversteer.  If the car oversteers a lot, then increase the front sway bar.

This is the next step stiffer bar than the GMPP front. It is a solid bar instead of a hollow bar like the GMPP.  It is 33mm.


 Includes:

  • Sway bar
  • Bushings

 Shipping weight is dimensional.

  • 1997-2003 Grand Prix

Important improvement over stock

This front sway bar is a very nice piece and a necessary upgrode over the factory part. The stock sway bar on my car was the hollow type with flattened ends with the necessary mounting holes. The problem is that the ends will rust, delaminate and break apart. These sway bars are solid,much more durable and provide a noticeable improvement in handling, especially when paired with the rear bar.

Excellent front sway bar upgrade!

This bar fit perfectly on my brother's '01 Buick Century and was a great upgrade over the stock bar which had broken like they are known to. Fitment was great, and the performance increase is extremely noticeable (you can tell just how stiff it is by the fact that while one side's tire was on the ground and the other side was still on the jack stand, the side on the ground was lifted basically to max height to match full droop on the other side). We used the Moog poly end links we already had on the car.

Great part so far.

So far so good.still less than 6 months old but works great. Still working any bugs out of suspension with the sway bar to other components.

Night and day even on stock ride height!

I had bought this during black Friday and just got time to install it yesterday. The myth that you need to drop the subframe is not true. I disconnected each tie-rod and got those out of the way. Brake clean to the dirty sway bar mount bolts. The bolt on the driver side is monotonous since you can only use a wrench with the brake lines there. Got the alignment done today and the car feels AMAZING! The steering input and corner handling is nice and stiff. Totally worth it if you want to have exceptional steering input. I'd give this a 6/5 stars if i could.

Yep

I put this in only to find out my ball joints/control arms are wearing out. Have some minor vibration issues at 0-20 under about 2500-3000rpm at initial start, but now the car is super touchy going down the road, meaning very little steering input needed which I love, but I drive a cement truck 10 hours a day with over 8 turns lock-to-lock, so I'm constantly weaving for the first couple minutes driving my lil beast.
