Armored Vehicles

Among the many installations and applications for Hellwig sway control products is their use on up-fitted high security armored vehicles. Hellwig Products has developed a full line of heavy duty sway bars for medium and large sport utility vehicles which are converted for this use. Because armored vehicles are highly modified to protect their occupants these vehicles become much heavier. The center of gravity is also increased. As a result of these changes the original suspension provided is underrated. Handling characteristics become sluggish with increased body roll which could lead to unsafe driving in an emergency. Hellwig sway bars virtually eliminate the poor handling derived from the added weight of body and window armor.
