Thread: Front and Rear Anti Roll Bars (Sway Bars) Available soon

  1. #1

    Front and Rear Anti Roll Bars (Sway Bars) Available soon

    A while back I promised Anti Roll Bar kits for the Caddy, its taken forever and a sh1t load of work to get this to fruition. Well as of today I have definate prices, I am only waiting on postage costs to myself so that I can work out the import duty etc... If all goes to plan I will also be able to supply the USA as well as Europe

    Im sure a lot of you will be interested in the REAR ARB's as these are just NOT available, Im hoping these will be available for approx £190 but this will be confirmed in the next few days

    The Specs are

    Rears 3/4" (20mm) £190 NOW £175

    Fronts 7/8" (24mm) £190
    NOW £175



    The front is substantially thicker than the OEM GTi item

    Let me know if you interested

    Question

    forgive my ignorance but are these for the mk1 shape? If so where does the rear one bolt up to? Cheers.

  3. #3
    Yeah, sorry they are MK1 ones

    They fit to the back axle (clamp) and chassis (bolt)

    The delivery times will be reduced in the near future, its just that the manufacturer is having to put these bars back into production for us

    'Back' into production? If it would not be nosey (as I could do research), who produced them the first time? Also, is this the same company producing them now?

    Again, I understand the need to keep sources under wraps if you choose. I only ask so that I can try to find old info. on said bars...


    Also, if these are bigger than the GTI up front, would that be too much bar for at least some occasions?

    Sorry to be a pester.

    Man, just spent £300 on a new welder.
    These would go great on my new Caddy (pic's to follow shortly in show off). Is this a limited supply or will I still be able to get a set of front and rear around Feb. time? What with Christmas and then snowboarding in the new year funds are getting tight. If so I have another rear axle in my garage waiting for one of your exchanges. Would you do a price for both ABRs and a flipped rear axle that’s ready for rear disc conversion?


    Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

    No these will be available hopefully for the forseable future, when your ready give us a shout and we can discuss your axle flip as well

    Do the rear bars fit happily with a flipped rear axle?
    Know of rear bars that were made by a well known firm that only fitted the conventional setup. Wondered if these were the same.
