      I installed the rear 24mm H&R sway bar this AM. What a difference, I can apply throttle through the corners, WooHoo!

      The suspension has been ordered, now I'm searching for wheels/tires.

      Absolutely upgrading my rear sway bar! Thanks for all of the feedback and updates from the group.

      Curious, did any of you who installed this who has lowering springs, did you need to get new end links?
      OR
      Could you just use what was stock on the car before?

      I think I know the answer, just making sure as I have my B7 on Konis and H+R lowering springs.

      Thanks!

      OP I covet thy sway bar, and also thine rims. What are those? They look too good to be stock

      I wonder how much they weigh? It'll be a tough call between these and some OZ's I've been eyeing on Tire Rack.

      Look at them - Most likely they are 27-30lbs lead weights.

      Wow - Looks like keeping the car looking OEM will be difficult. Lightest 19" I've seen are the Pretoria's from the newer golf R

      I know - the lightest 19's on Tire Rack are OZ Leggera's, 20.0 lbs each.

      Check out the TSW Bathurst. Within one lb and a lot less $$$.
