SOURCE: Front Left Sway Bar Link

The front stabilizer shaft (sometimes called a sway bar) is mounted to the top rear of the frame and to the lower control arm. The shaft is attached to the frame with clamps and rubber insulators and to the control arms with insulator links.

SOURCE: front sway bar

Should be behind the front wheels and is mounted to the control arms and the body . Most have sway bar links on the control arms, but some are mounted with clamps.If it is broken or the bushings are worn it is easy to fix. Just make sure you tighten the bolts with the car's wieght on the ground or the bushings will squeak going over bumps.

SOURCE: replaced sway bar, backend is still swaying,when I hit a bump the backend moves like ots fish tailing

Could deff. be the rear struts on this car but could also be that the alignment in the rear is way off causing the wheel that is supporting the most load when hitting a bump or pot hole to pull the car in the desired direction that that whell is angled toward. But if you are leaning towards replacing the rear struts do that first since it also requires a 4 wheel alignment then all the bases are covered. Otherwise if you try the alignment and that isn't it you will have to pay for a second alignment after the struts are replaced.

Rear suspension sway axle side


could be rear wheel bearings - they come as a complete assy with brake hub - approx $45 each side - 1 hour per side for replacement. Also replace the rear sway bar links $8 for a set - other than that you could have a bent wheel and or loose rear control arm bolts - remove the rear wheels and check all mounting bolts - I had this problem and my rear end felt like it was shimming when I went around corners - 5 minute fix

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Install rear sway bar


a sway bar is usually u shaped and hooks to the body and the tops of the u hook to the axle with links that have bushings. most jeeps dont have a rear sway bar.the panhard bar is the rod that goes from one side of the axle to the body on the opposite side. its sometimes mistakenly called sway bar. it keeps the body from moving side to side around corners. then there are the torque bars they keep the axle from trying to rotate when accelerating.
none of this would be real expensive but if its been lifted a bunch then you may have problems

You most likely need new struts and shocks. especially in the rear. It is common. If it feels like this all the time including driving straight, then check that sway bar an ends aren't broken.

A client is complaining of a loud and felt thumping noise from the rear axle area. They are thinking rear struts. 92. 500SEL with auto leveling, ADR option unknown, VIN WDBGA51E7NA035055


first I would check your sway bar links in the rear to make sure they are not broken. If the suspension is stiff it is probably your ads accumulaters( I believe it was standard on the 500 model). Also check your fluid level to make sure you have proper fluid in the reservoir in the engine compartment and that your pump is working properly( it is a tandem pump which is also your power steering pump. There is also an adjustment on the sway bar that is adjusted by moving the arm that attaches the valve to the sway bar on the right side of the rear sway bar.

Replace the rear sway bar links or the sway bar bushings. Either or will cause a sway in the rear. If it is one side of the rear is off set . Car going down the road at an angle. Align the back of it...then realign the front.
