We Also Recommend
034Motorsport is proud to offer the ultimate rear sway bar upgrade for the front-wheel drive MkV/MkVI Volkswagen Golf/GTI/Jetta/GLI/Rabbit & 8J/8P Audi TT/A3! The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar is made from high-quality spring steel for maximum rigidity, and is designed to combat understeer while reducing body roll under hard cornering.
This product was tested thoroughly on the street and track on our shop MkVI development car before release. The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar substantially reduces understeer and body roll on MkV/MkVI Volkswagen Golf/GTI/Jetta/GLI/Rabbit & 8J/8P Audi TT/A3 vehicles without compromising comfort on the street.
In addition, this 034Motorsport Rear Sway Bar is engineered to be used effectively with the stock front sway bar. No upgrade in the front is needed or required. The addition of a stiffer front bar introduces even more push, requiring an even bigger bar in the back. With the stock front sway bar and upgraded 034Motorsport Solid Rear Sway Bar, body roll is virtually eliminated while turn in and off throttle oversteer are greatly improved.
Please Note: We recommend runnning the latest revision of the factory rear end links, or upgrading to our Adjustable Spherical Rear End Links when using this sway bar on the "Stiff" setting.
The installation of your 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar Upgrade for the MkV/MkVI Volkswagen Golf/GTI/Rabbit/Jetta/GLI & 8J/8P Audi TT/A3 FWD is a relatively simple process that will take approximately two hours to complete.

For the price point, this is one of my favorite mods to date. It really helps keep my GLI more neutral in the corners, which has the added benefit of making it feel more like a GTI does. And with over 1000 miles logged so far, I have experienced zero clunks, creaks, or squeaks which speaks to the quality of the components.
10/10 would recommend to everyone as a cost effective upgrade.
Purchased and installed this product on a 2014 Tiguan S with six speed manual. Prior to installing this product, the Tiguan exhibited significant roll in corners and clover leafs. After installation of this 034 bar on the nominal setting, roll has been greatly reduced. Corners and clover leafs can be navigated at much higher speeds and stability, as well as with greater confidence and predictability. Bar is a solid piece of engineering. Great price point for a product of this quality.
I purchased this for my MKVI Sportwagen. It's only a 2.5 so I needed to make it more fun in the corners. Installation was easy, it took me 30 minutes with the car on ramps in my driveway. The hardware is excellent, and the fit and finish is great. I needed to add grease via the Zerk fittings after installation because it developed a squeak over speed humps.
Chassis response is amazing now, the turn in is immediately better, I only have it on the soft setting and it is worlds different. The stock bar is smaller than the one on the GTI and there is more heft in the back.
In some track testing in the rain the car will actually make the tires squeal before they slide, the capability of these cars stock with this bar is very impressive. a rear stress bar and this thing should be amazing!
A beautiful quality product at a superior cost to performance value. This is also the only bar I have found on the market with Zerk fittings for easy maintenance!
I was on the fence about adding a rear sway, but decided to purchase one from 034 based on what I had heard about their quality and customer service.
The product itself is truly a work of art. It is about 2 times as thick and 3 times as heavy as the stock bar. The installation was simple when I found instructions online. I rated this 4/5 due to the lack of instructions, but overall it is a must have for anyone with a GLI.
The car is much more secure, and responds immediately around corners without any 'roll delay' that I experienced with the stock bar. Can't wait for a front sway from 034 if they decide to manufacture one.
The install was pretty straight forward. The build quality was superior. I really like the billet mounts w/ the zerk fittings. Mounted the sway bar and end-links, cleaned up, and took the CC for a test run thru some roundabouts at speed. I'm impressed. Quality product 034!!
Good quality product. Much heavier than the stock bar which lets me know how much stronger it will be. The billet mounts are a great addition. Only giving a 4 because of a few minor set backs. Lack of instructions made me searching online for other rear sway bar installation reviews. The nuts and bolts for the rear end links were mismatched. Meaning it was a minor nuisance trying to figure out which size of sockets to use. One of the nuts was even American and not metric. Also, not a big deal since it sits under the car but the 034 Motorsport logo was just a sticker that was slapped on poorly. Not painted on like it looks in e pic.
Moving on it definitely has made a difference to my GTI Mk6. The rear feels more connected and I got less noise it seems. It seems to actually follow e front of the car through uh turns and feels more in control. Even going over the speed bumps seems less dramatic in the rear. Very happy with the performance of the product. Just took a lot longer to install with a good set of instructions.
I installed this bar on my GLI MKV, the improving was definitely noticeable but I already had and upgraded suspension with Eibach sportline and Eibach sport shocks, car felt a little more stable on the curves and ride comfort is the same as it was before with the stock bar, I specially liked the price and the aluminum brackets and all the hardware included, one thing that would be nice is to include directions and torques for the install and more lubricant for the bushings. I'm very satisfied with this bar and I think it is great product.
