Depending on the bars, cost of anti-roll UR bars are RM395 for 19mm and RM295 for 16mm, the price still nego according to Ultra Racing. I think 16mm should be sufficient for our Accent.

Nope, nothing so glamour. Ultra Racing are made from hard and rigid light mount steel. Although a bit costly, but they seem to have very good response from all their customers that had installed the Ultra Racing strut bars. Anybody tried?

Stock accent handling is already quite good, why need to change? Unless you are more into even more sporty drive and hard cornering.

i've read somewhere in an australian hyundai forums that installing a bigger rear sway bar plus a front strut bar would improve the stability of Accent, on the highway as well as taking corners.

i'm currently trying to figure out why the front of my car is 'jumping around' too much on uneven road, especially at highway speed. according to the 'rear sway bar theory', upgrading the sway bar would unsettle the rear a bit.

this would put more grip on the front when encountering bad road, thus stabilizing the car. on corners, the rear would 'roll' less, and the same theory applies where more grip is put on the front.

i'll try this rear sway bar (a.k.a anti-roll bar) after i have my steering linkages & front suspension checked, and my front tires replaced. i already have the hotbits front strut bar. will be updating the forum when i'm done.

'Jumping'? Then, check your tyre pressure. Should be around 220 cold or 225 hot readings. Or change to better tyres, sure more grip one. Proven.

pressure would depend on tyres. me still on NCT5, done 48k mileage. feels better at 29 psi front and 28 psi back. won't be for long though... Wink

Hi all, new to this forum but come across this thread so would like to post some comment for the first time.

Apparently, when taking sharp corner at high speed, i realize accent tend to oversteer. That's why I have to counter the turning after the back losing grip. However accent is installed with anti roll bar (16mm if I'm not mistaken) and it shouldn't be oversteer.

Consulted my technician. Accent tend to oversteer because the rear sway bar stiffen the back of the thus. Front is soft while back is hard causing it to oversteer easily.

Then I installed strut bar (quite expensive tho) and it take care of the problem. U will feel the rigidness from the front chasis during high speed cornering and definitely improve handling.

Getting to love this bar so much. Putting a 4 point lower arm bar soon. To me this improvement is worth getting if u want to speed through corners.
