Tuned specifically to your Volvo C30, the ELEVATE Rear
Anti-Sway Bar will keep your vehicle flat in the corners and increase
vehicle control. Tire contact patch is maximized when you are at the
limits. Stock factory rear sway bars range from 19mm to 21.5mm in
diameter depending on vehicle options. We have created a strong, 25.4mm
(1") diameter bar to greatly increase the cornering ability of your
Volvo. Our testing has shown that a replacement front anti-sway bar is
not necessary to achieve the driving characteristics desired, so we
focused our efforts on optimizing the design of our Rear Anti-Sway Bar.
You will experience quicker turn in and more neutral handling with your
vehicle having the ability to rotate better under heavy cornering.
Installation is very easy and will take the novice about one half hour
to remove the stock bar and replace it with the upgraded ELEVATE bar.
The ELEVATE Rear Anti-Sway Bar is manufactured of solid chrome moly with
thick, welded end links and finished with a durable powder coated
finish for many years of use. Your factory end links are retained, and
high quality greaseable polyurethane bushings with ELEVATE specific
metal brackets and grease are included.
Depending on the year and options of your Volvo C30, there are three
styles of rear sway bars installed by the factory. You will need to
determine which is correct for your vehicle before ordering. When
viewing your factory rear sway bar from under the rear of your vehicle,
locate the sway bar end link. Your end link will attach to the sway bar
in one of two ways:
Horizontal Tab: The mounting tab on the sway bar is horizontal /
parallel to the ground. The end link is straight and passes straight
down through the sway bar. The retaining nut is facing the ground.
Vertical Tab: The mounting tab on the sway bar is vertical /
perpendicular to the ground. The end link is a 90 degree right angle
which passes through the bar. The left and right side retaining nuts
are facing each other. If your C30 has Vertical Tabs, there are two
variants based on the spacing between the sway bar bushings which attach
the sway bar to the rear subframe. Measure the space between the
insides of the sway bar bushings to determine if the spacing is 17.5"
(44.4cm) or 19" (48.2cm). When ordering, be sure to select the bar with
the correct spacing for your application.
