ZZP 3800 Rear Sway Bar

SKU: ZZ-RSWBR-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 rear. (18.5mm HALLOW).

ZZP rear sway bar is 18.5mm SOLID.

Includes:

  • Sway bar
  • Bushings

Shipping weight is dimensional.

Worth the money

I had originally had the GMPP on my last w body, chose the zzp one on my newest w body. Not sure if there is any actual difference between this and the GMPP other than the red paint but it handles well with it either way! Install required me to drop the rear muffler hangers to fit in the new bar as the new one has an extra tab extending off of it for what I assume is other cars and creates a couple of clearance issues during install.

Super sway

Overall easy to install, I guess it is a unit that fits other model cars so it comes with more than one mounting hole at the end but a quick measurement on the old one revealed which hole to use.

A matching upgrade for the front sway bar

I wasn't really planning on changing the rear sway bar but necessity required replacing the front so I figured I may as well do the back one too. I'm very glad I did because my Grand Prix's handling is much improved. I would advise everyone to inspect the ends of their stock, hollow front sway bar, and replace it with the ZZP performance model and upgrade the rear bar to this part. You'll appreciate the handling improvement at a very reasonable price.
