      We're pleased to announce the availability of our all-new MQB Audi A3/S3 Quattro Rear Sway Bar Upgrade! Featuring one-piece solid spring steel construction and two-way adjustability, these bars are designed to provide an excellent level of body roll reduction and improvement in handling dynamics, without sacrificing ride comfort.

      034Motorsport MQB Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar, 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro, MkVII Volkswagen Golf R

      Retail: $265.00 + Shipping


      034Motorsport is proud to offer the ultimate rear sway bar upgrade for the MkVII Volkswagen Golf R & 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro! The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar is made from a single piece of high-quality, 22.2mm thick spring steel for maximum rigidity, and is designed to combat understeer while reducing body roll under hard cornering.

      This product was tested thoroughly on the street and track on 034Motorsport's 2016 Audi S3 Development Vehicle and multiple enthusiast-owned MQB Audi/Volkswagen vehicles before release. The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar substantially reduces understeer and body roll on 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro & MkVII Volkswagen Golf R vehicles without compromising comfort on the street.

      In addition, the 034Motorsport MQB Rear Sway Bar is engineered to be used effectively with the stock front sway bar. No upgrade in the front is required. The addition of a stiffer front bar can positively affect turn-in feel, but ultimately worsens the platform's tendency to understeer. With the stock front sway bar and upgraded 034Motorsport Solid Rear Sway Bar, body roll is virtually eliminated while turn in and off throttle oversteer are greatly improved.

      Features:
      • 22.2mm Diameter
      • Solid Spring Steel Construction
      • One-Piece Design
      • 2-Way Adjustable

      What's Included:
      • 034Motorsport 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro & Volkswagen Golf R (MQB) Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar
      • Polyurethane Sway Bar Bushings
      • Billet Aluminum Sway Bar Brackets with Integrated Zerk Fittings
      • Sway Bar Bracket Installation Hardware Kit
      • Sway Bar End Link to Sway Bar Hardware Kit

      Fitment:
      • 2015 - Present Audi A3/S3 Quattro (8V - MQB)
      • 2015 - Present Volkswagen Golf R (MkVII - MQB)

      Sway Bar Rate Data:
      • 034Motorsport (Soft) - 37% Rate Increase vs. Factory Audi S3 (22mm) Hollow Rear Sway Bar
      • 034Motorsport (Stiff) - 52% Rate Increase vs. Factory Audi S3 (22mm) Hollow Rear Sway Bar

      Installation Instructions:

      Thank you for the orders! We still have a few of these Rear Sway Bars on the shelf and ready to ship.

      Mk7 Golf R Rear Sway Bar Upgrade | Reduce Body Roll & Decrease Understeer



      Here's a review of the bar from the Mk7 Golf R forum:

      Quote Originally Posted by dndodd View Post

      I used their end links too.

      Went on a short drive yesterday in using the soft setting. Much flatter and more neutral. No unusual noises.

      Will try the harder setting soon as well as their new sub frame inserts.

      I chose this sway bar because I really like their dog bone insert and they advertise that it is designed to work with the front sway bar. The last part just seemed to make allot of sense to me.

      Thank you for the continued orders! Another Audi S3 owner's review just came in over on Audizine.

      Quote Originally Posted by Nathing32 View Post
      So I have no patience and went ahead and installed the new 034 rear sway bar and 034 rear end links last night. Initial impressions are that the car corners as flat as anything I've ever driven now. I'm sure a dedicated sports car would have even less body roll but it would have no where near the ride quality and comfort of the S3. This is key for me since this is my daily driver and although I plan to track it once I've done a few more mods, I really want to maintain or enhance the daily drive-ability with each mod I do. The new sway bar does not noticeably degrade the ride quality as far as I can tell. I took the car through some twisties at 40-50 mph and the responsiveness and predictability are immediately obvious. I'm definitely much more aware of the rear end now - like the car feels much more AWD instead of FWD+. FYI - Currently I have an otherwise stock suspension/wheels/tires although I'm running the ECS flush spacer kit, the UBQ brace and my car came with mag ride.

      Install:
      The process is very straightforward and the only minor challenge you'll likely have is figuring out how to fish the passenger side end of the OEM bar out from above the exhaust and axle and around the ride height sensor brackets. I disconnected both the lower bracket that attaches to the control arm (as directed in the 034 instructions) and one of the T25 screws on the upper bracket so I could swing it out of the way. I used jackstands to support the car which gave enough clearance for fishing the old bar out but I imagine a lift would allow you to contort the bar at better angles and make removal easier. Since the S3 sway bar is not straight (like the A4/S4) it requires more manipulation to get it in and out.

      One note - make sure you have your 6mm triple square fully engaged in the OEM link end bolts before you try to loosen the nut off of them. The bolts are thin walled and surprisingly brittle. I actually cracked the end of the driver side bolt because I only had the triple square about half engaged. Amateur mistake. I removed the OEM sway bar with the driver side link still attached because of this. Luckily I had the new end links which come with a much more substantial through bolt. The links are beautiful little pieces of sculpted aluminum that make the OEM version look like they came off a riding mower. Note that if you don't buy the new links you will need to reuse the existing link to sway bar bolt and nut (the bolt I cracked) since the sway bar does not come with a new link bolt.

      I'll report back again after I've had more time with it but for now I like it a lot and it was a fun install.
