Where do sway bars connect?

A sway bar is connected via rubber bushings to the car body or frame in the middle.

The part that connects the outer ends of the sway bar to the suspension component is called a sway bar link.

Do you need sway bars to pull a trailer?

A vehicle-based sway bar is usually not required to pull a trailer, or the factory sway bars are typically adequate. For taller vehicles like motorhomes or trucks with truck campers, a vehicle sway bar upgrade is highly recommended, however.

How tight should anti sway bars be?

You would make it about as tight as you think it needs to be and then tow the trailer to see if it needs to be tighter or looser. If you made it as tight as you can then you would not be able to move the bar by hand but the force of the trailer pushing it around can move it.

How do sway bars work?

A sway bar works by resisting the twisting force applied to it when one wheel moves down or up compared with the other wheel and weight transfers from one side of the vehicle to the other – when you're turning a corner, for instance. And, in that resistance, the bar tries to keep the wheels as level as possible.

How do caravan anti sway bars work?

It works by 'stiffening' or causing friction to the coupling which is between the trailer and the tow vehicle. The level of friction applied depends on the towing conditions, and also the trailer weight. These sway bars prevent swaying from getting worse.
