The "sway bar" only helps correct body roll (leaning). Most of the sway issues I have seen on juiced cars is caused by adding weight (batteries and pumps) to a car with tiny tires!


Try running a little more pressure in your tires to help with the added weight.

If you only have 1 dump and one check to the front and your not raised up all the way and your not down all the way, when you turn it will put more pressure on one side and push the fluid over to the side with less pressure. So your car will be uneven and seem to sway when you turn corners or hit uneven humps in the road

True. So I guess polkcountyg needs to describe what "sway" means to him.
