Replacement Rear Sway Bar Empty
PostSubject: Replacement Rear Sway Bar   Replacement Rear Sway Bar EmptyTue Nov 05, 2019 5:27 pm

Was Fluid Filming the underside of my Riv today and noticed the end of the rear sway bar is broke off on the drivers side. Not having luck finding one, anyone know of a good place to look? Not looking to put an STS bar in but would be open to it as I’ll replace the bushings and end links at the same time anyways.

The car has Moog problem solver end links front and rear, I saw albertj mentioned something about them causing the end of his sway bar to break, is that an issue with those end links? If so I’ll get different ones when I replace the sway bar and also replace the fronts with matching different ones as well.

I replaced my rear sway bar on my 98 Riv with an ADDCO solid sway bar that was much larger in diameter than stock and had made a big improvement in the overall handling of the car. I also did the front sway bar also.

Unfortunately I junked the car with all the Modification parts still installed. But, I would look up Addco to see if they still sell the bars for the Riv's. Quality stuff.

Part # 2015 sound right? Looks like that’s the number listed on Addco’s chart. Jegs has that one for $167 but doesn’t ship until 12/16.

I just found the folder that has all the info on sway bars and links that I used.
Yes, the Addco #2015 is correct and I actually ended up getting it from Summit at the time due to availability and a lower price than Addco direct.
I paid $157.90 in 2009.

Also installed heavier sway bar links and bushings. IIRC the oem links used 5/16" bolts. The Energy Suspension Sway Bar Link Kits for the rear were 3/8" bolts with poly bushings to help keep the rear more stable. I got them from my local Advance Auto Parts store.
I also bought the Energy Suspension stuff for my larger front sway bar.

Good Luck to you. Wish I had the bar to ship to you. frown

Also - word to the wise - be sure to reinforce the points that the mounts for the bar bolt onto the frame/subrframe. Even if it's just epoxying on some big washers.
