      Since there aren't really any reviews on rear sway bars or what they do for the B6 I figured id do a little write up for you guys

      Products are posted in title
      http://www.namotorsports.net/BSH/Sus...HBSH-RSBEL-PKG

      I bought all my stuff from NAM, Ed and Josh are awesome to work with, always very helpful, and up to BS about some VW/Audi talk and even a lil Subie talk too

      Install was pretty easy, I had one buddy help me for pretty much moral support (ya know hand me my when i got thirsty). All in all took about an 1.5 hrs to do once the car was in the air.


      Great instructions from BSH
      RSB: http://www.bshspeedshop.com/bshstore...structions.pdf

      End links: http://www.bshspeedshop.com/bshstore...structions.pdf


      Special tools needed: (all tools are listed in the instructions just want to highlight these)
      -Grease gun (this was a surprise) you need to grease the fittings poly fittings that wrap around the bar
      - Tq wrench
      -M6 and M10 trip squares

      First impressions (just visually), the OEM 21mm sway bar is pretty solid, but compared to the BSH one its a puny piece. The BSH RSB weighs about 20lbs were OEM RSB was like 5lbs its much beefier





      The OEM end links i was very surprised how weak they looked.


      First drive impressions: all I can say is WOW, I installed the RSB on the stiffest settings (the BSH has 3 settings soft, med, and hard) Body roll was drastically reduced but ride quality didn't suffer. I didn't really beat on it too much but I definitely felt a huge positive change in performance


      After a month: I have has some very nice 70-80 degree days to go on some rides and really feel out the cornering., Hitting turns faster and more aggressively everything feels much more solid. Highway driving actually feels smoother, some long sweeping turns getting on the highway the car is just feels much more under control.

      Overall I'm extremely happy with the RSB and End links they're well worth the time and money. I wish I did this when I first installed my suspension!

      I been loving my Nesupeed RSB for 5 years now.. it completed the suspension work. I was looking at the endlinks.. that would be a nice upgrade too.

      The BSH ones are definitely worth the money

      Nice review. A review sticky would be cool to keep all product reviews together.

      Nice review Have been running my BSH RSB on medium (2nd) for a while now. Definitely helps with the roll.

      Did you contemplate the Neuspeed links. Just curious if BSH's are stiffer for a daily ride
      http://www.ngpracing.com/store/index...roduct_id=5684

      I saw some posts about Neuspeed links being broken.

      Can these be installed without removing the rear wheels or you have to take them off.

      Edit:

      My BSH RSB snapped on the drivers side. talked with BSH and they only warranty it for 1 year. What a bummer .
      The stock RSB one was fine when I removed it off after almost 48K miles and the new one failed in less than 13K. This can't be good. The car is a daily drive.

      you can prob leave the rear wheel on but its much easier if you remove it

      Bill6211789,
      Do you know what 27mm sway bar I can get? since BSH is out of business I think
      All I see is H&R 24mm at Awe tuning/Ecs
      or 25mm Neuspeed at ESE
      Basically everything bigger it says only for 4motion cars
