Those who used to, or still, own the older gen MINIs know how much of an improvement they get from a larger Rear Anti Sway Bar. It is essentially the best body roll management you can ever do to your MINI. The handling characteristic and steering input are so well enhanced it is almost as good, if not better, compared to installing lowering springs or coilovers.
Fits the following models:
2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door
Front wheel drive cars naturally understeer from the factory, even the MINIs. The NM Engineering Solid 22mm Rear Anti Sway Bar improves your F-chassis MINI by enducing more oversteer and increasing the car handling predictability.
NM Eng Anti Sway Bar features:
- mandrel bent solid chromoly bar providing consistent diameter through out for precise torsioning motion
- forged ends (not cheaply welded plate) with two adjustment mounting holes
- graphite impregnated urethane bushing
- glossy blue powder coat finish
See NM Rear Sway Bar installation instructions here.
When ordering this sway bar, we STRONGLY recommend the G3NMS2105 Adjustable Drop Links (End Links) since the factory drop links are made from plastic and may not be up to the task with this performance sway bar upgrade.
Another option is the G3NMS2110 22mm Billet Sway Bar Brackets which are much more durable AND includes a zerk fitting to allow lubricating.
We at Mini Mania believe the rear anti-sway bar should be the first suspension upgrade on your MINI. Of course, we also recommend that you drive your MINI in a drivers education event to truly learn the characteristics of this fabulous car. Then you can appreciate the improvements you get from each of these upgrades.
