Sway bars are designed to adjust the balance, the under-steer or over-steer
tendency, and control body roll. By increasing the rate of both front and rear
sway bars you can reduce the tendency for the body to roll during cornering.
This will make the car react more quickly to your steering inputs. By changing
the rate of just the front or the rear sway bar you can change the balance of
the car. This allows you to adapt the balance of the car to fit your specific
setup, track and driving style.
In the pursuit to offer you the highest level products for your Corvette we
have completely redesigned these sway bars to offer lighter weight, more
durability and improved geometry.
Introducing the fourth generation of racing sway bars from Pfadt Race
Corvette Racing Sway Bars
The Pfadt Racing Sway Bars are designed for those that are looking for the
ultimate Corvette sway bars. These three-piece sway bars utilize a 4130 Chromoly
torsion bar that offers exceptional durability and ultra lightweight 7050-T7
aluminum arms. The adjustable end links that are included in every kit are also
designed to be as lightweight as possible. While standard end links used in sway
bar kits are 12mm we save weight by using custom, high-strength rod ends that
allow us to reduce the size of the hardware without sacrificing strength. The
use of a turnbuckle allows precise corner balancing without having to disconnect
the end link from the car. Both front and rear sway bars are three position
adjustable giving you nine different sway bar rate combinations. To finish the
installation this kit includes polyurethane sway bar bushings, optional Solid
Pillow Blocks are available for dedicated track cars.
While the Pfadt Racing Sway Bars were designed to be the perfect addition to
Corvette racecars competing around the world they are also the ultimate sway
bars for your high performance street Corvette. With the addition of the Pfadt
Racing Sway Bars you will find a new level of responsiveness and corning grip
that was never before possible.
These sway bars are offered in two different rates: Light Rate, LR, which are
ideal for rougher tracks, typical autocross courses and daily driving and Heavy
Rate, HR, which are ideal for smoother tracks and those looking for the maximum
response possible. The graph below is a comparison between many GM sway bars and
the Pfadt Racing Sway Bars.
