DFI Sway Bar [ Length of Bar: 32; Arm Length: 18"; Thickness of Bar: Light 20.5mm; Onroad or Offroad: Onroad; Upgrade: Basic One Mount Heim Plate ]
We have put a lot of time and money into the development of a 95% Australian designed, Australian manufactured and using Australian Alloy/Steel Sway bar. The only part that is not made here in Australia is the heim joints and that is only because there isn’t a company here in Australia that currently manufacture them.
Unlike most of our competitors we have not simply renamed a Curry Sway bar or simply made arms to suit a Curry bar. We have completely redesigned the entire product. We tracked down a custom sway bar manufacturer here in Australia. The company has over 35 years’ experience in manufacturing torsion bars and sway bars for Rally cars, Sprint cars and drag cars. Using published information, testing and information gathered by inspecting broken sway bars combined with their experience I believe DFI have a superior product.
We basically took a curry sway bar and upgraded everything. Upgraded from 19mm thick Alloy arm to a 26mm thick alloy arm.
Upgraded from single sheer cheap non heat treated rose joints to 5/8" or optional 3/4” heat treated cromoly heim joint that will be double sheer at both ends of the link.
Our link material is CDS tube not a threaded rod.
The torsion bar of the sway bar are slowly heat treated not flash heated doing this creates a longer lasting tension that is less likely to develop a memory. After heat treating they are machined again to produce a smooth surface. This extra process removes all the weak points allowing it to work harder and last longer.
Our sway bars are offered in a light medium and a HD torsion bar strength. The standard will be slightly stiffer than a Curry bar our Medium will be about 25% stiffer, the HD is 80% stiffer.
The On road setup is designed for vehicles with up to 14" of travel and our off road setup is for vehicles with more than 14" of travel.
Ones again thank you all for the support
