Chapter 46, Problem 1RQ
To determine

The working of stabilizer bar.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 1RQ

The working of the stability bar is to provide directional stability by reducing the body roll as it runs between the opposite control arms in the suspension system

Explanation of Solution

The stability bar, also known as sway bar, is a metal rod and present in nearly all suspension systems and runs between the opposite lower or upper control arms in the system. It provides directional stability by reducing the body roll.

Further, it looks like U and is connected to the control arms. It helps in transferring the movement between wheels i.e. if one suspension reacts to road surface, the bar transfers it on the other wheel with same movement. Now, at the time of jounce, if both the wheels are in jounce then, the stability bar rolls in its bushings but if only one wheel is in jounce then, the bar twists to lift the frame and the suspension of opposite side which leads to reduction in body roll.

Conclusion:

Thus, the above is the working of stability bar in the suspension system.
