    Well it is in the rear we change the front two sway bars but it was still swaying so when we looked it was in the back near the driver side rear tire. I have pictures wish I could post them.

    It ended up being the Torsion Bar not sure of spelling. Apparently it is a part that snaps alot on the Expedition so Ford made the bar longer (of course no recall) Way to go Ford Never again..... Thanks for trying to help me.

Why does my 2009 gmc Acadia sway at highway speed


Make sure the tire pressures are at the recommended pressure. Check for worn steering/suspension components particularly the front/rear stabilizer links as one or more may be broken.Has the alignment ever been checked rot proper angles?

We have a 2003 saturn vue tha sway bar broke , easy to disconnect, now we got a new sway bar . My question is how do we install the curvy sway bar back to its spot ?What part(s) may need taken off to get...


remove the 2 pivot points under the car on the chassis sub frame . Disconnect the rods at either end of the sway bar at the rubbers . I would get all new rubbers for the sway bar and pivots before reassembly. Sway bars normally do not break as they are spring steel so it may have been weak or rubbing on a pivot from a missing rubber

I have an issue with my 04. Chevy Cavalier ! We were driving and all of a sudden it pulled to the left! Took the car back home to check things out.... Looks as though the control arm is broke. It seems...


A sway bar issue wouldn't make it suddenly pull anyway.
It sounds like what you're seeing is a failed ball joint. THAT will cause the problem you're having, AND it fits the description of what you're looking at.

Will a sway bar from a grand am work in a olds alero?


I googled "Alero sister cars". It came back as Grand Ams. Same chassis, engines, and many other parts. They called it an "N-body" vehicle.

Front sway bar link kit, what is the order of installation. all my bushings are rotted away.


Remove the sway bar links from lower control arms. Replace the sway bar mount to frame bushings first. Then install sway bar link bushings. Note how they come apart and install in the same manner.

What is the purpose of the swine bar? The bar right by the tire. it has broke in my vehicle.


You mean the sway bar? If so, the sway bar or roll bar, or sometimes called the stabilizer bar. The sway bar has two functions.
  1. To prevent body roll or lean in a turn.
  2. It is used to control the handling of the vehicle and is tuned to your specific vehicle based on many characteristics.
You most definitely need to replace the broken sway bar. A vehicle with a broken sway bar is not a safe vehicle. The handling is not what it should be and this can be dangerous if you have to make a quick maneuver. Replace it, ASAP.
