Look under your MINI Cooper. See that little sway bar down there? Replace it with an ALTA Performance sway bar and we promise better cornering, reduced body role and greater control over your suspension. ALTA Performance Sway Bars are bigger in diameter and come with multiple end-link attachments, giving you more possible configurations than any other swaybar.
An important step to making your car turn better comes from replacement of the rear sway bar. By increasing the diameter and leverage, more cornering force is applied to the outside wheels. Thus forcing the car to "turn-in" better. Additionally reducing sway also increases the contact patch of the rear tires.
The Alta Performance rear sway bar goes one step further than simply making the bar bigger. Although size is increased, Alta has added the flexibility of changing the bars leverage with 3 different end link attachment points. This allows the end user to custom tailor the way his or her car handles.
The street enthusiast will enjoy a 19mm upgrade to improve cornering in ordinary driving conditions, others thinking of something a little more extreme, should look at the 22mm.

ALTA Performance was founded in 1996 when owner Adam Taft, began to sell important performance parts from his parents’ architectural business in Beaverton, Oregon. Two years later, Adam rented space in a small retail store in an industrial part. It was at this point that ALTA Performance hired employees and began supplying inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports, it became the premier Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the Portland, Oregon area.
In 2002, ALTA Performance started offering aftermarket Subaru products because the Honda market became oversaturated. The Subaru products were so popular that the company dropped all its other ones. Jeff Perrin joined the ALTA staff as an installer and tech; at this time, ALTA began manufacturing some Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name. PERRIN and ALTA parts were selling like hotcakes and the company was forced to move once again to a larger warehouse. ALTA Performance added new vehicle lines to its portfolio like the EVO and Scion.
In 2007, ALTA Performance purchased a 25,000 square-foot facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. With room to grow, the brand could now add more production and office staff. For the first time since ALTA started manufacturing auto parts, it had a real showroom for local customers to visit and an in-house dyno for testing and tuning. Today, ALTA Performance continues to grow and has come a long way since its inception in 1996, where all of its inventory literally fit on a baker’s rack.
