15.5110 | Rear Sway Bar Bushings - 20.7mm | VW Passat 2009-2016
20.7mm Rear Sway Bar Bushings 2006-2013 Audi A3 + Volkswagen Models
When you take a hard turn in your Volkswagen Passat or Audi A3 you expect that precision engineering to make you feel like you're on rails. So when your rear tires let go of the pavement and your back end slides out you're probably wondering "what the heck happened?" and the answer could be the rubber bushings holding your rear sway bar to the frame.
Over time the elements and continual flexing will wear down this rubber and leave you with a hollowed out bushing. When this happens the rear sway bar will shift when you turn and your car will experience body roll. This means your rear tires can lose traction and allow the rear of your car to drift into the outside during a turn.
More Bang for your Buck
You can replace those bushings with more rubber, but if you're looking for a more durable option you should check out Energy Suspension's 20.7mm polyurethane Rear Sway Bar Bushings. Polyurethane doesn't flex or bend like rubber and will continue to provide a secure grip on the rear sway bar, keeping those rear tires on the ground long after rubber bushings would have allowed them to let go.
These bushings not only replace inconsistent rubber bushings but it will also make the stock sway bar on your Audi or Volkswagen perform like a more expensive aftermarket sway bar, all for a fraction of the price of a larger bar. Energy Suspension's sway bar bushings are split for an easy install and simply slip over the bar before being held firmly in place by the bracket, making this one of the easiest DIY suspension projects you can take on.
The Durable Solution
Wear is not the only circumstance that can cause those rubber bushings to fail. Heat, road grime, and auto chemicals can cause rubber to degrade to the point of falling right off of your car, while polyurethane is unaffected by these elements.
After installing these bushings you will notice a significant reduction in body roll from your Audi or Volkswagen, especially during hard turns or if your vehicle has a lot of miles. Energy Suspension's polyurethane bushings will outlast rubber everytime and DST will back them up with a lifetime warranty.
