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
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
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!
