  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just ran over a big metal chuck of car part in the road this morning and destroyed my C-Bar. There may be other damage but that's another discussion. Not the worst thing because I've been wanting to get rid of it anyway. With an auto trans it's way too low. Mice in the road don't even have a...
  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Alright, ain't the first, but proud of the install so I have to do a write up: First, got the bar within 2 weeks of ordering it, so cheers to Chas. Got all the necessary tools (safety glasses, dremmel, locktight, torque wrench, etc), put the car up on the ramps, and then went to town. Total...
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My C-bar arrived this morning so I brought it to the local tire shop and asked them to do it along with rotating my tires. They were reluctant because it's not company policy and they don't want to be liable. I assured them that they just needed to give me a wrench while the car was on the...

    Well I had been alluding to it in my C-Bar thread in the Group Buys forum, but now it's done and I'm ready to show you all what I've been up to. I've been asked for as long as I have been making these bars for people to add some sort of Drive Train Stabilizer to my bars like the AWE DTS. And I...

    I received my c-bar (lower tie bar manufactured by CB5 member... see group buy forum). The c-bar looks very well made. I want to make sure that my installation does it justice. So, my questions... 1. How much ft./lbs/ torque should the bolts get? 2. Should I apply an antseize or lock tite...
  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, I installed my new C-BAR yesterday, and did a qick drive around the neighborhood to seat everthing. I got a chance to drive my daily 20 mile route today and gotta say...This is the best addition to my car to date! The car feels tight, and no more shaking over common road bumps. Thanks...

    The Lower Tie Bar (LTB) I am selling is a great addition to any B5 or B5.5 Passat, Audi A4 or S4. It improves turn in and in-line stability to both modified cars as well as unmodified suspension cars. Though the cars with modified suspensions will feel a greater turn-in ability. The LTB adds to...
