Euro Sport 4-Point Lower Front Stress Bar - VW Mk1SKU: 18035
Designed and tested on our 1975 Yellow Rabbit 1.8-20V project car. The ultimate stress bar choice for the VW Mk1 is our unique four-point subframe, which mounts to the front and rear of the control arms. This bar has two cross sections that connect the front to the rear, thus giving maximum stability and rigidity. Legal for SCCA IMPROVED TOURING class. Its like adding a subframe to your MK1 VW. Manufactured from 14 guage heavy duty steel tubing. The front tube is 1" diameter and all other tubes are .75" diameter. Finished in gloss black powder coat. Our lower stress bars are designed to fit vehicles with manual transmission only.

I hit a curb at 40 mph nearly head on and this stress bar is so well made and strong, my driveshaft would’ve gone clean though the lower control arm mount if I didn’t have it, but instead it only put a dent in the mount, the stress bar was almost unharmed, but it did flex one of the mounts pretty badly. I’m so satisfied with it that I’m buying another one.
Hi Ryon, We are glad our product held up to the severe impact and thank you very much for sharing this info.
Made a big difference in handling. Steering response is way better and less body roll.
Car felt a lot more composed under hard cornering on the track. Made it easier to choose and stay with your line.
Arrived promptly... fits perfectly.
Thank you Gregory :-)
I installed this on my 1981 VW Rabbit Diesel Pickup and it was a perfect fit and made it handle and drive like a new truck. Very crisp response.
