      sway bar is still in place,just disconnected.
      airlift xl struts do not have attachments for the sway bar, disconnected front sway bar doesn't affect much under regular daily driving.

      Are those the thule aero bars? What are your thoughts on them? Are they as quiet as they say they are?

      So clean. Gotta love it, especially with the Queensland wheels. Looks great.

      Love seeing this kind of stuff in here. Far better than the GTI front end swap threads...
