If you had camber in the rear without shims you have a bent rear beam.
I'm new to forums well not actually new, I've been searching on here but not as a registered member. I have a 2002 Golf GTI and what I need help figuring out is what can be causing my car to be fish tailing in the rain or like when I hit a bump with one of my rear tires the car will throw its rear end out in the opposite direction. I wish I could have been introducing myself on better terms but this has been bothering me for a while now. I forgot to mention that the rear end had really bad toeing and cambering, which I had to shim.
whats troll??? well anyways here is my car. sorry for the bad pics but my car has been boxed in all day and no one wanted to move their car so i can get mine out. but as soon as I can I'll put up better ones.
These pictures are after I shimmed the rear wheels..

Looks like there is more to it than a rear beam.
Bumper does not fit.
Hatch doesnt seem to fit properly against 3/4 panel.
Pass Tail light looks like it sticks out.
Car sits higher on driver side.
Its fairly common for the bushings in the rear beam to fall apart and it will cause excessive movement in the beam. You can also "bend" the beam in various situations.
I have a beam that I can sell you, but at a weight of ~80lbs shipping would be intense.
Ok so ive been looking for a rear beam and nothing....i was wondering if yhe jetta rear beam is the same as the gti???
and for the person who om here afford me to sell me his how much would it cost for everything to get it to me??? So if I dont make sense im writing all this from my phone and thanks everyone for your feedback
