Stabilizer Bars!

July 25th, 2011

Do you ever wonder how your factory original Honda wheels and different suspension parts stay together? I do – this is where stabilizer bars come in.

One of these bars have a sequence of tubular rods that are there to connect opposite wheels and the car’s suspension units to each other. These rods are normally connected by something called torsion springs. The bar is part of a car’s suspension system and is also designed to increase the vehicle’s lateral roll stiffness.

When the rims on the car move in the same direction, the stabilizer bar doesn’t bend. When your OEM Honda rims move in different directions, even if it’s just a little, the bar will then twist and then cause extra stiffness that’s unnecessary.

Interesting, right?
