The GTI/Golf/Jette in stock form has a tremendous amount of roll as it travels through a corner. Along with that roll under steer develops and progressively gets worse until you are forced to back-off the throttle to get more weight to the front and subsequently turn the rear. With the Hotchkis Sport Sway Bar installed turn-in is very crisp and much faster while roll is limited through the corner. The GTI/Golf/Jetta now responds very well to quick maneuvers while the outside front and rear tires gain so much grip that they feel as though they have added tire pressure. This Sport Sway Bar consists of a tubular 27mm front sway bar and a tubular 30mm rear sway bar. The front has two positions of adjustability while the rear has three. Polyurethane bushings and bushing brackets front and rear are included as well as zerk fittings for easy lubrication. The front features a hybrid adjustable rod end link while the rear includes adjustable rear links mounts and grade 8 hardware. The Sport Set is perfect for aggressive canyon carving and track day events while not being too aggressive for every day street driving. All H Sport Sway Bars are CNC formed with forged ends and all are powder coated black. This applications now fits all MK4 models equipped with 4 cyl motors and both 5spd/6spd and automatic transmissions. Rate increase over stock Front: +57% and +85% Rear Bar Stiffness in lbs/in. : Soft 237.65 lb/in. Medium 259.28 lb/in. Stiff 284.10 lb/in.
