034 Motorsport Adjustable MQB Solid Rear Sway Bar Upgrade, Mk7 Volkswagen Golf/GTI, GLI, 8V Audi A3 FWD
034Motorsport is proud to offer the ultimate rear sway bar upgrade for the Mk7 / Mk7.5 Volkswagen Golf/GTI, GLI and 8V Audi A3 FWD!
The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar is made from a single piece of high-quality, 25.4mm thick spring steel for maximum rigidity, and is designed to combat understeer while reducing body roll under hard cornering.
034Motorsport's Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar Upgrade for the Mk7 Volkswagen Golf/GTI and 8V Audi A3 FWD is engineered to improve the handling dynamics and balance of MQB-platform vehicles.
Designed to be a bolt-in replacement for the hollow factory rear sway bar, this upgrade will drastically reduce body roll and understeer without sacrificing ride quality. Manufactured from a single piece of solid spring steel, this bar is over 50% stiffer than the factory unit, resulting in a much more balanced and agile car, which corners flatter and can be coaxed into oversteer as desired when driving through curves on the street or track.
This product was tested thoroughly on the street and track on 034Motorsport's 2015 Volkswagen GTI Development Vehicle and multiple enthusiast-owned MQB Audi/Volkswagen vehicles before release. The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar substantially reduces understeer and body roll on 8V Audi A3 FWD and Volkswagen Golf/GTI vehicles without compromising comfort on the street.
In addition, the 034Motorsport MQB Rear Sway Bar is engineered to be used effectively with the stock front sway bar. No upgrade in the front is required. The addition of a stiffer front bar can positively affect turn-in feel, but ultimately worsens the platform's tendency to understeer. With the stock front sway bar and upgraded 034Motorsport Solid Rear Sway Bar, body roll is virtually eliminated while turn in and off throttle oversteer are greatly improved.

Upgraded End Links
Why not get the most out of your new performance sway bar? 034Motorsport end links are much more direct in transferring suspension weight than the factory end links. Their adjustability also means that you can reduce the amount of pre-load on your new sway bar.
034Motorsport sway bar end links are available in either Motorsport or Dynamic+ versions. The Dynamic+ end links utilize a sealed ball joint design for smooth, maintenance free operation and are great for use on the street or track. The Motorsport version use spherical bushings for the ultimate in stiffness. Unfortunately this means that we cannot recommend using them on the street.
Please Note: For maximum effectiveness, NGP recommends upgrading the Rear Sway Bar End Links when installing this rear sway bar.
