Polaris Slingshot End Links
End links are the strong counterpart of the sway bar and are
necessary for proper functionality. When a Slingshot takes a turn, the natural
momentum causes an angulation of the tires, which reduces friction between the
tire and the road. This leads to a loss of control as more weight is displaced
onto the outer tire. To counteract this the sway bar is installed to help
redistribute this weight back onto the opposing side of the tire to keep the
wheels aligned with the road, meaning more of the tire stays in contact with
the ground. This is where the end links come in, as proper spacing between the
sway bar and control arm determines how effective a sway bar is on a
Slingshot's performance. Having durable, high quality end links is important
for anyone looking to keep their Slingshot running at its fullest potential.
This is doubly important for anyone who has raised or lowered their Slingshot,
as changing the height of the vehicle will affect how well the sway bar
synchronizes with the rest of the Slingshot.
