New MOOG® Solid Sway Bar Kits Restore Handling and Improve Durability for Light Trucks and Passenger Vehicles

June 25, 2020

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., June 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MOOG®, the premium steering and suspension brand from DRiV™, recently introduced new Solid Sway Bar Kits designed to restore handling and improve durability for many applications.  This new offering provides coverage and repair opportunities for nearly 7 million vehicles in operation (VIO).      

Each MOOG Solid Sway Bar Kit includes MOOG Solid Sway Bars, Problem Solver® Sway Bar Link Kits and Bushings, and new mounting brackets and hardware for proper installation. Offering increased and improved durability, MOOG Solid Sway Bars are made of solid, forged steel instead of a hollow design,  reducing the likelihood of breakage; the welds on OE hollow-designed sway bars often rust and fail, causing the end of the bar to split at the weld and break apart.  Additionally, the e-coat black coating on the link kits, brackets and hardware are corrosion-resistant for easier installation and increased life.  Also included are synthetic fabric-lined bushings, where applicable.

Currently, the new MOOG Solid Sway Bar Kit is available for the following applications and more (visit for complete listings):
