Euro Sport Upper Front Stress Bar - VW Mk1SKU: 18040
Stress bars are an important bolt on for all water-cooled VW 's, whether it's for street or competition use. The triangulated* design of our upper-front stress bars help to eliminate the roll and twist of the front sheet metal frame. Construction consists of heavy wall 7/8" and 3/4" diameter steel tubing and is welded to 1/4" thick steel mounting plates. Finished in gloss black powder coat.
Euro Sport upper-front stress bars require no cutting of the firewall or body modifications. Unlike some of our competitor's bars, ours are true bolt-ons! Our stress bars are designed and manufactured to fit properly!
Hardware and installation instructions are included.

Hi, I received my order in sturdy carton box with no damages very quickly here in Japan. This is my first time ordering from Eurosport and am very impressed with their prompt service after processing my order. I haven’t installed the part yet as I am waiting to do a front end rebuild first. However, I am happy with my purchased strut tower brace for my 1993 VW Golf MK1 cabriolet! I highly recommend this company!
No problems, shipped quick and easy to install. I'm happy with things overall.
Very easy to install, perfect fit. I recommend putting in new strut mounts first because they do often wear out anyways as you might aswell replace them while your working with those bolts anyways. My car has a whole lot less front end roll to it and it gives me a more ridgit, sturdy controlled turning. Great for your mk1 and it looks super awesome. Eurosport for the win.
fits on a mk1 with a g60 swap.
I purchased the strut tower brace and the lower front chassis brace after speaking with one of the techs at euro sport and got the information I needed. The braces themselves are well made and confidence inspiring in design. They were easy to install with included instructions and they look great!
This upper stress bar really stiffens up the chassis. Definitely a must do on any MK1.
Fit was great.....no hassle!
Fit and finish was excellent. Highly recommend this stress. At on any MK1
I have 3 A01 MK1's and have tried other upper front stress bars as they were cheaper, I ended up selling those and ordering this because of the difference in quality, these fit great! I will tell any of my friends about and recommend your products.
Thanks for your feedback Danny :-)
