    hi guys,
    this is the 2nd time it caught my attention along traffic about the "rear strut bar?!" in the crosswind e.g. xuv's.
    my question is the main purpose of it and where to find that shop or store..

    thanks guys

    Wala yatang rear strut ang Crosswind. Live axle yun, eh.

    Do you mean rear stabilizer bar/anti-roll bar po?

    your probably right sir otep,these stabilizers i think it was connected at the rear shocks.
    what does it do exactly?
    is this fabricated or after market?
    very curious about that..
    thanks

    A rear anti-sway bar does just that. It stops the rear from swaying from side to side by rigidly linking the left and right rear suspension.

    A good example of this is the Fortuner, which has very stiff anti-sway bars. Thus, even though the springs are soft and the Fortuner dives a bit under braking, it doesn't roll to the side if you take a corner sharply.

    If there is an aftermarket anti-sway bar for our boat... este... Crosswind, I'd like very much to know where you can buy one.

    I know that most shops like that can fabricate strut-bars, but anti-roll? Hmmm... sabagay, madaling mag-fabricate para sa Civic if you kow the mounting points... baka puwede din... pero mahirap yata mag-"tune" ng anti-roll bar... too stiff and you run the risk of snap-oversteer. Kaya thinner na yung anti-sway bar sa likod ng 2006 City, to prevent this.

    Pero it might be worth your while to try it. But for me, modified shocks first.
