ECS MK5/MK6 Adjustable Sway Bar Upgrade Kit - Rear - 23mm
- Ex Tax: £189.95
- Brand: ECS TUNING
If you’re looking to improve the handling of your VW MK5/MK6 Golf, GTI, Jetta, Passat/CC, or similar model, 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.
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.

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. See ES3184747
** 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.
