TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 Fig.  7  Front Sway Bar Fig.  8.  Rear Sway Bar Legend for Fig.  8 Key Description 1 NUT 2 WASHER 3 BUSHING 4 BRACKET 5 SPACER 6 LINK, Sway Bar 7 RETAINER, Cushion 8 CUSHION 9 NUT 10 SWAY BAR 11 BRACKET 12 BUSHING 13 BRACKET Sway bars are available for both front (Fig.  7) and rear (Fig.  8) suspension applications. Simple  in  construction,  these  bars  perform  their stabilizing   effect   by   twisting   when   spring   height   at opposite  wheels  becomes  unequal.  For  example,  if  the wheel on one side drops into a chuck hole, the spring on that same side expands.  At the same time the sway bar tends  to  expand  the  opposite  spring  and  lift  the  truck. Failing to do this, the bar twists and lessens the shock of the wheel dropping. In  like  manner,  if  the  wheel  on  one  side  hits  an obstacle, the spring on that side compresses.  The sway bar tends to compress the opposite spring and hold the truck  down.  Failing  to  do  this,  the  sway  bar  twists  and lessens  the  shock.    This  resistance  to  twisting  in  the sway  bar  is  particularly  useful  in  limiting  sway  or  roll when the truck is rounding a curve or when it suddenly encounters a strong cross wind. No  service  is  necessary  on  the  sway  bar  other than  a  periodic  inspection  to  see  that  mounting  parts remain  secure.    Rubber  bushings  should  be  replaced when they become deteriorated or permit metal to metal contact.  Keep mounting bolts tight.
