    Strut Bar vs. Sway Bar ???

    Morning,

    Looking to add some traction to my 13' NAV; which one of these are the better way to go? I am also going to add those spacers to the frame so hopefully with the combination of both, should set me straight... Any suggestions ??? Who makes the best set up? Thanks in advance for your advice....

    It doesn't add any traction. All it does is make your car more drivable in extreme conditions. It's easier to corner a car thats firmly planted than one that's leaning off in one direction or the other.

    A strut bar is for the most part totally useless. A sway bar though, is where you will feel the biggest difference.

    strut bars are not useless...


    although the hinged one this guy is holding is pretty useless. be sure to get yourself a solid, one-piece bar.

    I would have to agree, the strut bar made a very noticeable difference in mine.
