Also to know is, does changing sway bar links affect alignment?

Does changing the sway bar end links affect the alignment of the car? They have nothing to do with alignment. When the car is level they should have no tension on them. They only work when one wheel moves up/down relative to the other wheel.

Additionally, what are the symptoms of a bad sway bar link? Some of the common symptoms of a bad sway bar bushing or sway bar links going bad are:

  • clunking noise,
  • rattling noise,
  • knocking uneven noise road,
  • lack of stability when driving and noise going over speed bumps.
  • poor handling during turns.

Keeping this in view, do you need an alignment after sway bar?

An alignment isn't necessary after any sway bar install. Unless you touch something like the LCA, strut, etc, an alignment isn't necessary. Removing the sway bar, and replacing it would not require an alignment, unless something that I mentioned above had to be moved to access the sway bar.

Can Swaybar links cause vibration?

It is also known as anti-roll bar, sway bar and anti-sway bar. The stabilizer bar should be checked for stiffness. This causes side to side motion in the car which affects steering and handling of the vehicle, which may cause shaking or unstable driving conditions.
