High security armored vehicles is among the many installations and applications for Hellwig sway control products. 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 vehicle 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. The United States Diplomatic Motorcade uses armored Sport Utility Vehicles to transport some diplomats in various situations around the world. They have chosen Hellwig Sway Bars to remedy the poor handling characteristics on some of their motorcade vehicles. Hellwig sway bars have seen use on armored SUV’s in Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and the United States.
