MINI Cooper 22mm Rear Adjustable Sway Bar by ALTA Performance (R50 / R52 / R53 / R55 / R56 / R57 / R58 / R59 Model)
Improve the handle and reduce the body roll of your MINI Cooper with the ALTA Performance Adjustable Rear Sway Bar!
ALTA Sway Bars are made from solid steel using the latest precision bending equipment. The entire bar is heavily powder coated to fight corrosion and give it a deep red finish. They laser cut and MIG weld their bar ends for precise placement. This type of bar end will never fail and gives us greater precision over competitors. (Some competitors simply smash the ends of their bars flat. Not only looking unattractive but compromising the integrity too!)
ALTA Sway Bars incorporate multiple endlink mounting holes which allow the installer to custom tailor your driving experience. ALTA Sway Bars increase stiffness by a minimum of 100% over the stock bar. By adjusting the endlink mounting position you can increase that stiffness to as much at 400% over stock.
ALTA Sway Bars feature centering rings that prevent sway bar movement in hard cornering. This keeps your sway bar centered and ready for the next corner.
All sway bars include polyurethane bushings for a crisp response and better turn in. Special pockets are carved into the bushing surfaces to capture grease and extends the interval between re-greasing.
ALTA Performance sway bars come in two different sizes. 19mm and 22mm. Driving enthusiast will enjoy the feel of a 19mm bar while true racers will like the rigidity of the 22mm. The softest setting on the 22mm is reflective of the stiffest setting on the 19mm bar.
ALTA Performance uses a precision laser to cut the multi-point, sway bar ends from plate steel. Using a jig, we weld them onto our bars in the exact location for best articulation and leverage angles.
