At long last the wait is over we have finaly developed out Patrol front sway bar kit. Its only taken 2 years but we now have a product that we are happy with and can now offer it to the public.
Like all our swaybars they are supplied with real heims that are all double captivated. This kit was designed on and tested on a Patrol and was all made right here in Australia.
Best of all like always we offer then in 3 different rates.
Soft for the guys that like to have more feel or like to play on the rocks.
Medium for the daily driver, Weekend warior and Winch trucks.
Heavy for the short coarse or the guys that just like the rig to feel like its on rails.
And like all our other kits we have put a lot of time and money into the development of this 95% Australian designed, 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 product or slapped a sticker on it or use junkyard parts or simply make 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 will have a superior product.
We basically took a curry sway bar and upgraded everything.
Upgraded from single sheer cheap non heat treated rose joints to 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 on our common kits and premade alloy links for the Patrol front kits.
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 this extra process removes all the weak points allowing it to work harder and last longer.
Our sway bars are offered in light, medium, Heavy and can custom order a HD torsion bar strength. The light will be very simular than a Curry bar our Medium will be about 25% stiffer, the HD is 80% stiffer.
