    Adjustable sway bars

    Thanks guys for the replies, this could be the brand on the centre picture, it would appear seeing it has steps in the rear shaft section that it does not travel in and out, it just rotates so you either get a very thin flat plate, or a semi verticle blade that would offer more resistance to...
