Extremely easy to install. Very noticeable on curves taking tight turns.
It's ok. No real driving upgrade. The front sway bar is much more noticeable mod for the R. My biggest complaint of this bar is that I've owned it for 2 weeks and had to check the bolts 4 times. Is 22 foot pounds right? Every couple of days the inner bolt on both sides is always loose. I've yet to check it and that bolt be properly secured.
Thanks for your feedback Kelly. The front stress bar is not comparable to a sway bar since they do two different things. Yes, 22 pounds is the correct torque for the top bolts and that is what Volkswagen recommends. I am hoping you are using a torque wrench for the bolts. Thanks again
One small imperfection on the coating, on the back side of the bar, that's going to be covered up by the rain tray. No points of articulation to create noise or deflection, very solid piece. Highly recommend!
Thanks for your feedback Brian :-)
