Authorized Dealer


Having trouble with your vehicle leaning, or swaying side to side? Whether you own a truck, suv or RV, Hellwig Suspension offer a great solution. Hellwig Sway Bars are an easy, affordable way to upgrade your truck, car or suv's handling performance. Body roll & sway is reduced by the torsional effect of the sway bars, stabilizing the vehicle. They transfer the pressure on the outboard wheels and apply opposite pressure on the inboard wheels. Weight is more evenly distributed to all four wheels helping your vehicle stay more level with the road. Installation is simple, most sway bar kits can be installed with simple hand tools. Hellwig is a market leader producing quality suspension products since 1946.

Review Product
Great Quality & Performance but U-Bolts were defective
First off; the finnish on the sway bar has a durable hammer tone finish. Installation was fine except for the provided U-Bolt assemblies. The nuts did not match the threads on the U-Bolts. I took the U-bolts & nuts to a machinist & he verified. A production mistake? I went to the Hardware store & got 2) 1/2" U-Bolts & 8 nuts with lock washers to complete the installation. ($20) The Hellwig website directions display the 1/2' rather than the 3/8" Bolt & nut combo. a better solution

Very good quality- Very good price - Outstanding customer service
Part took a little longer to get here than originally anticipated but worth the wait. Came with everything ( and I do mean everything for install ). We did have to drop the gas tank on the 1997 Ford Ranger to get at some of the old bolts for the new installation. Very high quality and fit perfectly. Glad we went with the Hellwig system. No additional parts needed for the install. Hellwig did take care of us on a minor problem on time for shipping and we appreciated that a great deal.
