PART NUMBER: 20R-1006
FRONT AND REAR SWAYS sold as a combo.
Racing Beat-designed sway bars reduce chassis roll in turns and increase your car's sensitivity to steering inputs, thereby improving maximum cornering power. Substantial engineering effort, select steel alloys, and precise heat-treating processes combine in a superior product at a great price...
The diameter of the RB front tubular bar is 1.25" (32mm) x .1875" wall thickness, as compared to the stock 1.05" (27mm) x .134" wall thickness front bar. An additional feature of the front bar is a pair of OEM style "stoppers" to prevent the bar from sliding sideways in the bar bushings during heavy cornering effort. Each bar is supplied with replacement urethane bushings, bar clamps, Prothane grease and installation instructions.
During test sessions using our Racelogic VBox GPS data acquisition system, we recorded noticeable handling improvements after the installation of the Racing Beat sway bar set. Using the stock wheel/tire/ combination on our 2004 RX-8, we recorded the following cornering forces:
Stock Bars: .86-.87g
RB Bars: .89-.90g
