I autocross my scirocco 16V. I've had Shine Racing's springs & rear bar w/ 205/50-15 Yokohama AD08s for about 2 full autox seasons.
At a recent event I noticed the rear tires had started rubbing against the springs. Nothing was obviously amiss, but when the alignment was checked, the left rear camber was -0.9 and toe was -1.50 and right rear camber was -1.6 and toe -0.43. I had a new axle installed and during that process the mechanics found this:
The rear axle was replaced and the SCCH Rear Beam Toe Stabilizer kit was installed, but for now I only have a stock rear sway bar. I'm concerned the Shine bar broke the rear axle, since the break seems to be around the mounting point for it. I would really appreciate some advice on what to do for a rear sway bar. With the toe kit installed, would it be safe to put the shine bar back on? What caused this?
