Product Details

If you’re looking to improve the handling of your VW MK5/MK6 Golf, GTI or Jetta, this is the best place to start! These cars have more body roll than desired and the stock sway bar doesn't quite do enough for most owners to be satisfied. 

Larger diameter sway bars have a higher torsional spring rate which helps resist excessive body roll. By eliminating the excessive body roll and changing the stiffness of the sway bars front to rear, we can improve handling characteristics by reducing understeer and keep the tire in full contact with the ground. By upgrading to the ECS Tuning Adjustable Sway Bar, you will experience less body roll, and a massive improvement to the handling characteristics of your vehicle, with virtually no sacrifice in ride quality. 

ECS Tuning sway bars are adjustable and allow for a “softer” setting, or a “stiffer” setting, depending on your driving preferences.

 

PART DESIGN

  • FRONT
    • 25.10mm OD, solid, sprung steel tubing

    • +1.5mm larger diameter than the stock GTI front sway bar (23.6mm) 

    • Wrinkle black powder coated for great looks and corrosion resistance

    • 90A durometer polyurethane bushings - reduces flex at mount as compared to OEM rubber

    • Bushings feature internal grease channels to consistently provide lubricity for squeak-free operation 

    • Black zinc coated steel sway bar mounting brackets 

  • REAR

    • 23.4mm OD, solid, sprung steel tubing

    • +2.4mm larger diameter than the stock Golf / Jetta rear sway bar (21mm) 

    • Wrinkle black powder coated for great looks and corrosion resistance

    • 90A durometer polyurethane greaseable bushings - reduces flex at mount as compared to OEM rubber

    • Bushings feature serviceable grease fittings and internal grease channels to consistently provide lubricity for squeak-free operation 

    • Sway bar mounting brackets are precision CNC-machined from 6061 aluminum to bolt into the OEM location. They are Type II black anodized for corrosion protection and include zinc flake coated Class 12.9 alloy steel cap screws for premium performance. 

 

KIT CONTENTS

  • ECS Tuning Adjustable Sway Bar - Front & Rear Position

  • Polyurethane sway bar mounting bushings (4)

  • Front - Steel sway bar mounting brackets (2; upper & lower)

  • Rear - Billet aluminum sway bar mounting brackets with Zerk fittings (2)

  • Sway bar mounting bracket bolts (8)

  • 5mL tubes of polyurethane bushing grease (2) 

 

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

  • Reduced body roll without excessive change in dynamic F/R balance 

  • Increased cornering speed and response time

 

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

  • Our ECS Adjustable Sway Bars were developed in-house, tested and inspected by our Research & Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading-edge product development technology and methods, ensuring the necessary long term product testing was performed on multiple test vehicles in the harshest conditions available. 

 

INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT

  • Need installation tips? We put together a full installation tutorial from start to finish including how to remove your OEM parts in detail! See our Installation PDF under the INSTALLATION Tab for more information. 

  • * Although compatible with OEM sway bar end links, we recommended use with our ECS Tuning Adjustable Sway Bar End Links.

  • ** Developed specifically for Volkswagen GTI models. Similar applications will share the same fitment, however, it is up to the end user to determine sway bar diameter necessary for their intended purpose as handling characteristics will change from chassis-to-chassis. 

  • *** The front subframe will need lowered from the chassis to allow removal / installation, thus requiring all new front subframe hardware.
