Whiteline Adjustable Stabilizer Bars for Nissan R35 GT-R

October 23, 2009 Comments off


Widely respected, Australian based aftermarket suspension component manufacturer Whiteline has released a range of adjustable sway bars suitable for the Nissan R35 GT-R. Three sway bars are available, one front item and a choice between two different rear options.

The front stabilizer bar is a 33mm solid 3 point adjustable item while in the rear the standard 14mm sway bars can be upgraded to a Whiteline 18mm or a larger 20mm item which also offer the 3 points of stiffness adjustability. All sway bars also ship with polyurethane bushes.

If you’ve wondered exactly why you’d need to upgrade your sway bars, Whiteline put it fairly succinctly in their literature:

A sway bars objective is to reduce sway, or body roll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral (cornering) forces. Having adjustability permits the roll stiffness to be tuned for different situations without replacing the entire bar. The stiffer the bar, the more force required to move the left and right wheels relative to each other. This increases the amount of force required to make the body roll.

Cornering loads are spread more evenly across the tyres delivering more grip and frankly, that’s what it’s all about. You also get improved tyre wear as your tyres stay flatter and more upright. Comfort improves because your car sits flatter through bends meaning less movement inside the vehicle.

If you’re attending SEMA 2009, which is coming up very quickly now, check out Whiteline at booth #20457 where the R35 GT-R parts should be on display.
