    Sway Bars

    I am looking at getting front and rear sway bars for my mk4 hatch. Have seen some whiteline ones. Front 22mm and rear at 24mm.

    Would anyone recommend these?

    Also, how much of a pain in the arse are they to fit?

    Cheers in advance!

    Whiteline are excellent.

    Most just fit the rears though ... faily easy to fit, you need to drill through the bottom of the spring holder to enlarge the hole already there, apart from that quick bolt on job

    Great upgrade unless (like me) you have a stupidly low car resulting in the mounting parts touching the tarmac!

    Will probs fit one when I get coilys tho.

    As Coo says - most tend to fit the rears only and from what Ive heard they are one of the best mods u can do to improve the handling.

    The rear is highly recommended.

    Not many fit the front one as it requires you to to drop the subframe IIRC.

    Perhaps on obvious question for those that know, but what exact handling changes would a rear one of these alter?
