As they come off the factory floor, most 4-wheel drive vehicles that come fitted with rear anti-roll bars tend to favour stiff handling which can take away from your driving experience. By bettering the balance of your vehicle and tyres, upgrading your roll bars will not only transform the comfort of your drive, but will also see to better driver and passenger safety while enhancing the vehicle’s handling. If you have been considering upgrading your factory roll-bars, here are a few good reasons to do it.
Compensating for Vehicle Balance
By upgrading the anti-roll bars on your vehicle, you will assist its handling, comfort and performance through compensating for changes in the vehicle chassis’ centre of gravity, essentially enabling a more balanced drive. You can also upgrade your roll bars to compensate for an increased vehicle mass from installing accessories. In some cases, upgrades elsewhere on your vehicle which have changed its balance and weight may call for an upgrade of your roll bars.
Lengthening the Life of Tyres
By upgrading your roll-bars and seeing to better stability and balance on your vehicle, you will essentially also extend the life of your tyres since they will work under far less destructive pressure. In cases where upgrades have affected the balance of your car, an upgraded roll bar may actually be a necessity.
Enhanced Handling and Stability
By correctly balancing your vehicle, and through the back end of the roll bar resisting more than the front, you will enhance the handling of your vehicle through making sure that the wheels are taking on the weight of the vehicle evenly while providing more front tyre grip. The results of this are an overall improvement in stability and handling.
Essentially, upgrading your roll bars will lessen understeering, which will allow for a more fluid and enjoyable drive.
Improved Safety and Comfort
The abovementioned improvements to stability and handling through upgrading your roll bars result in two crucial benefits to your vehicle:
Firstly, it produces a more comfortable ride during off-road trips since handling is improved and loads from passengers, the vehicle itself and its accessories are evenly distributed thanks to the sway-bars.
Additionally, this improves safety through increased handling when operating the vehicle, even at high speeds and when cornering. Further protection is provided to the structure of the vehicle through roll bars as well.
