Description

If you’re looking to improve the handling of your Audi B9, this is the best place to start! These cars have a lot more body roll than desired, and the stock sway bars don't quite do enough for most owners to be satisfied. Engineered, designed, and tested in-house at ECS Tuning, you know these sway bars are built to last with the highest quality.

Larger diameter sway bars have a higher torsional spring rate which helps resist excessive body roll. By eliminating the excessive body roll and changing the stiffness of the sway bars front to rear, we can improve handling characteristics by reducing understeer and keep the tire in full contact with the ground.  By upgrading to the ECS Tuning Adjustable Front Sway Bar, you will experience less body roll, and a massive improvement to the handling characteristics of your vehicle, with virtually no sacrifice in ride quality. 

In our testing with both bars installed, we found up to a 1.5° reduction in body roll!  Testing shows a significant and consistent increase in slalom speed of approximately 2 mph. On average there was a gain of ~0.5 seconds through the ~4.5 second total slalom run time. The slalom testing consisted of 5 gates spread 50’ apart. The increased stiffness gives the car a much more stable feel and allows the driver to stay consistent and in control:

The sway bars are also adjustable, and allow for a “softer” setting, or a “stiffer” setting, depending on your driving preferences.
