How do suspension stabilizer bars work?

Suspension stabilizer bars, also known as sway bars, work by connecting the suspension of each wheel on opposite sides of the vehicle. When the vehicle is turning, the outside wheels will experience more force than the inside wheels, causing the suspension on the outside to compress and the inside to extend. This can result in body roll, which can decrease handling and stability. By connecting the suspension on opposite sides of the vehicle, stabilizer bars help to distribute the force of the turn more evenly between the wheels. This reduces the amount of body roll, which can help to improve handling and stability. Stabilizer bars typically consist of a metal bar that is mounted near the front and/or rear suspension and connected to the suspension components using links and bushings.
