Rear anti roll bar/bushes
« on: January 22, 2015, 08:44:02 PM »
Does anyone know if there is a thicker rear arb for the galaxy? I don't know the thickness on mine but it seems it's thinner than my passats front arb. And also, are there any polyurethane bushes for the rear arb? Cheers.

Rear sway bars generally are thinner then the front as there is less weight on the rear axle. Couldn't tell you the thickness of them but there are about 6 variants depending on engines and shock loading etc - I would suspect the sharan 4mo would have the thickest but might not be fitted the same way given the extra gubbins going on back there!

Thanx again Mark. Do you which one would be a straight swap/fit? And are there any polyflex bushes for the galaxy? I've been looking on the net but none listed! Cheers.

Nope, no idea what fits - I suspect all tbh as the rear trailing arms are AFAIK all the same but you'd need to do some part number checking for that. Again not seen any upgrade bits for the sway bars,
