A stiffer MINI Cooper sway bar reduces body roll when cornering, allowing for more
of the tire to grip the road, giving you better handling, and increasing
driver confidence & performance.
ALTA sway bars are made from solid steel using
precision bending equipment. The entire bar is heavily powder coated to
fight corrosion and give it that great red finish. We laser cut and MIG
weld our bar ends for precise placement. This type of bar end will
never fail and gives us greater precision over competitors. (Competitors
who smash the ends of their bars flat).
ALTA Performance sway bars incorporate multiple endlink mounting
holes which allow the installer to custom tailor your driving
experience. ALTA sway bars increase stiffness by a minimum of 100%
overstock. Adjusting the endlink mounting position can increase that
stiffness to as much at 400% over stock. *varies by model
ALTA Performance sway bars feature centering rings that prevent sway
bar movement in hard cornering. This keeps your sway bar centered and
ready for the next corner.
All sway bars include polyurethane bushings for a crisp
response and better turn in. Special pockets carved into the bushing
surface extends the interval between re-greasing.
19mm or 22mm
ALTA Performance sway bars come in two different sizes - 19mm and
22mm. Driving enthusiast will enjoy the feel of a 19mm bar while true
racers will like the rigidity of the 22mm. The softest setting on the
22mm is reflective of the stiffest setting on the 19mm bar.
