Hellwig Products, a US based manufacturer of suspension products, has released an upgraded front and adjustable rear sway bar for the 2016 Toyota HiLux.
The HiLux is factory fitted with a front sway bar but misses out in the rear, which makes the Hellwig Product’s bars one solution for owners wanting to improve the on-road manners of their HiLux. Hellwig Products recommend their sway bars to anyone that tows or carries heavy loads, or where the stock vehicle’s centre of gravity has been altered.
According to Hellwig Products, “These upgraded sway bars increase the anti-roll stiffness of the suspension, resulting in less body roll and weight transfer while cornering, improved handling and increased safety.”
Owners who ‘wheel’ their Lux will be pleased to note that the Hellwig Product’s sway bars can be quickly disconnected, which means maximum wheel travel is available out on the tracks.
The Hellwig’s 2016 Hilux sway bars are 34.93mm diameter in the front (Part# 7729) and 19mm in the rear (Part# 7752). Both are forged from a single piece of 4140 chromoly steel that has been heat treated for added durability.
The rear bar is adjustable and features forged, three-hole ends allowing for three different roll stiffness rate settings so the driver can adjust the bar to their specific driving style, vehicle use, and load.
Installation is simple and using basic hand tools can be accomplished in a few hours. All necessary parts and hardware are included with the purchase of each bar.
Hellwig sway bars are made in the USA and come with a Lifetime Warranty on all steel parts.
Hellwig Products also offers three and five leaf Helper Springs that work together with the sway bars to improve the HiLux’s handling, level load capacity and safety.
