Hellwig Rear Sway Bar for 2019 Silverado 1500

New rear sway bar crafted from solid steel bolts on to give 2019 Silverado tighter driving dynamics.

You just got the keys to your new 2019 Silverado 1500, ready to hit the town in total luxury, then off to the lumberyard to pick up a few bits of fine wood for your deck project before hitting the road for a weekend of camping and fishing.

Of course, if you’re towing or hauling loads in the bed, you might notice something off about how your new Silverado travels down the road. That something is the lack of a rear sway bar from the factory. No worries, though, for Hellwig tipped us off on their latest solution to tie everything all together out back.

Handmade in the good ol’ U.S.A. and crafted from 1 1/8-inch piece of solid chromoly steel that’s been heat-treated, Hellwig’s rear sway bar (also available for the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500) complements the various powerplants available for the Silverado, as well as its robust chassis, by providing a tighter driving dynamic and tons of control for the driver, especially when hauling or pulling those heavy loads.

For those who’ve already lifted their Silverados, Hellwig has a rear sway bar for trucks with two- to four-inch lifts, as well. Either way, the bars have polyurethane bushings for a squeak-free ride, and can be bolted right in like it came out of the factory that way.

The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
