Helwig Rear Sway Bar

Post by algopin »

I had a Helwig sway bar fitted to the rear axle of my 2002 AWD Astro (fitted with a 2" Overland van body lift). It made a remarkable improvement in cornering. High speed handling improved moderately and there was a slight improvement in resistance to cross winds.
There was no interference with a full size OEM spare.
I strongly recommend this sway bar, which should be called anti-sway bar.

I agree. I have Hellwig bar on rear of 2003 AWD Astro. Freeway clover leafs and sharp turns are flatter now. Hellwig bars are built in Fresno area in CA i think.
We need more factories in CA, not Indian gaming casinos.

We need to secure border with Mexico. 100,000 of illegals take more of our taxes, then our jobs. The lawless Obama laughs at the mess he orchestrated. Now he heads to Martha's vineyard to hang with billionaires.

Hi again,

You can order from Hellig directly, or from Summit Racing or other car parts. I think price was about $225 or so.

These are the best deals I've seen on Hellwig 7534, around $160 shipped.
