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

Suspension parts

So I got the upgraded zzp sway bar with their oe replacement control arms and I'm just loving they way it feels I'll be doing the rear soon along with struts it feels like a different animal also the spark plugs are amazing too the acceleration or so much another and more responsive it feels though I've woken up some power!

Huge Difference

I wasn’t expecting a huge increase in handling performance with this sway bar, but I was totally wrong. I held the stock sway bar next to the ZZP sway bar, and you could tell it is much more solid and heavy. Much less body roll and it is greatly needed in a 3800. They carry so much weight in the front end, the stock sway bar doesn’t handle it as well. Night and day difference. Install was fairly easy, just a few bushings, hardest part was getting in the tight spaces. Easily done with hand tools. Highly recommend this sway bar for any 3800, my Grand Prix sticks to the road much better now.

Good quality

Good well made sway bar, much better than stock. Easy installation when slipped in going between the drivers axle and lower control arm to start (suspension level).

Solid Bar but......

Great solid product. Makes big difference. Only issue I had was you can put this in upside down. The difference in the bend is subtitle and you can put this in wrong if you don’t pay close attention. Would be nice if they would label top or bottom.
