New sway bar debuts to improve handling in Sprinters

Hellwig Products has debuted an upgraded rear sway bar for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500. The device is said to improve handling dynamics and driver control.

The new product offers a reduction in body roll and lateral sway when entering a corner. This is especially ideal for RV conversions which, in addition to heavier loads, have a higher center of gravity.

This improved control “allows the driver to feel more confident when towing,” the company said in a press release.

This rear sway bar fits the 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with dual-rear wheels in both rear- and 4-wheel drive configurations but will not fit front-wheel drive applications. The larger diameter Hellwig rear sway bar replaces the factory bar, reuses factory end-links, and comes with heavy-duty polyurethane bushings for additional durability.

Installed in a few hours with basic hand tools, the Hellwig rear sway bar (P/N 7777) for Sprinter 3500 is forged from solid 1 1/2-inch diameter, heat treated 4140 Chromoly steel bar stock and finished in Hellwig’s signature “Hammertone” powder coat to prevent corrosion and wear under even the toughest conditions.

The article is based on a press release from Hellwig.
