Convinced that the old ways are better? Well, when it comes to suspension technology, that’s not always true. Today we’re gonna take a look at sway bars - a technology that has been around since the 1920s. We’ll compare them to newer technology like Timbren SES. Hopefully, this short article will open your eyes to see how newer technology is often better.
What are stabilizer bars?
The first sway bar patent was awarded to Canadian inventor Stephen Coleman of Fredericton, New Brunswick on April 22, 1919 but didn’t become popular until the 50s.
An anti-roll/anti-sway bar is usually a torsion spring that resists body roll motions, constructed out of tubular steel, and formed into a "U" shape with sway bar linkage that connects to the vehicle’s body at two points - both the left and right side of the suspension. Each end of the bar is connected to an end link that connects to a spot near the wheel or the axle, transferring forces from a heavily loaded axle to the opposite side.
Why sway bars? Sway bars were invented to improve ride quality by reducing roll and sway.
Hellwig sway bars cost somewhere between $400.00 - $1000.00.
Does a Timbren SES upgrade do the work of a sway bar?
Hellwig has been making Hellwig sway bars since 1946 for manufacturers and the aftermarket. There’s no doubt Hellwig sway bars will work to help stabilize your truck... if that’s all you need. But if after you’ve installed a sway bar you decide to purchase a helper spring like a Timbren SES upgrade to help with ride quality and load leveling, you won’t have spent your money wisely. Timbren SES upgrades can do everything a sway bar can... and a whole lot more!
What exactly does a Timbren SES do?
Timbren SES does not do the same job as a sway bar. It does far more! That’s because it provides a long list of features and benefits. Timbren SES upgrades use Aeon® hollow rubber springs that come with two unique characteristics:
Progressive spring rate
Unlike metal springs that have a linear spring rate, Aeon® rubber springs have a progressive spring rate, a rate that increases as more weight is added to the truck.
Unlike metal springs that need shocks to absorb the energy created when they compress, Aeon® rubber springs are self-damping, able to absorb the kinetic energy by themselves.
These two unique characteristics offer some distinctive advantages:
- Their progressive spring rate means they automatically adjust to the load preventing sag and squat even with the heaviest loads
- Increased stability (reduced roll and sway) when towing or hauling super-heavy applications
- Self-damping means they act like a shock absorber providing the smoothest ride even when your truck is fully loaded
- A soft, quiet ride empty or loaded
- Prevents damage to your suspension
- Installs quickly and easily
- Reasonably priced
- Comes with a Lifetime Warranty & a 100-Day Money Back Guarantee
Which product gives you the biggest bang for your buck?
If you’ve ever bought a sway bar to increase stability and later on added a helper spring like air ride to level the load on your truck, you’ve spent more of your hard-earned money than necessary.
Let’s face it, sway bars are ‘old school’! (So are airbags!) It’s time to let go of old ideas and accept what’s new. Just like you need to ditch your old mattress for a new one that’s made with newer technology, it’s time to let go of your old, conventional equipment and upgrade to Timbren SES rubber spring technology. More doesn’t always mean better. Sometimes less is more.
Still convinced that the old ways are better? Well, when you’re looking at suspension technology, that’s not always true! Today we considered sway bars that have been around since the 1950s. And we compared them to some of the newer suspension helpers like Timbren SES.
Timbren’s Aeon® rubber spring technology come with some unique characteristics that have convinced thousands of truck owners to ditch the old, conventional ways for the advantages of Timbren SES.
Timbren SES upgrades are a reliable alternative to sway bars. Hopefully, reading this short article has helped you see (if you haven’t already done so) that you need to let go of the old and look into what’s new. Timbren SES gives you more bang for your buck!
