Chrysler Sebring Sway Bar Frame Bushing
About sway bar frame bushing
The sway bar frame bushings are rubber blocks or bushing that grip the stabilizer bar to secure with the vehicle body or frame. One or two bushings are held together through bushing brackets on each of the stabilizer bars. Due to the vehicle's torsion load, the stabilizer bar is mounted securely through stabilizer bushing and the bushing brackets.
How sway bar frame bushing work?
The stabilizer bar or sway bar is used to tackle vehicle rolling in a turn. Also leans when the car turns the vehicle's weight, or rolls to the outside of the turn up to 30 degrees, which places greater weight on the outside tires and less weight on the inside tires. This weight differential affects both stability and vehicle steering as well as handling, the stabilizer bar uses torsion to shift external weight to the inside, thereby providing a balance while the vehicle is turning. The sway bar bushings tie the body frame and the stabilizer.
Where is sway bar frame bushing located?
The sway bar is attached to the vehicle's body / frame with sway-bar bushings. Two sway bar bushings are usually present at each sway bar. The bushings in the sway bar can thereby isolate the sway bar from the body or frame, reducing noise.
