    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Not only are factory sway mounts unsightly, they are also weak. Any extra play in your suspension means power that is not being transferred to the ground. Make up some of that lost input with the billet replacements for your VW. Made from billet aluminum, these mounts not only look more...
