Thanks for the feedback Chas. My chassis works pretty good as it is, and probbaly don't need anymore re-enforcements. But i am always on the lookout for a new worth while part.  I think i will just keep the suspension the way it is.

WOOO WOOOO Got my professionally installed C-bar tonight, THANKS Chas!! :) Feels better, more stiff than the stock bar that came with the S4, only time will tell how big the difference is I guess. And it of course looks better than stock, all shiny new aluminum >> black steel!!  :D  Will post pics WHEN I download them from my (new) camera onto my comp, that shouldn't be too hard, I hope haha  :P

You're welcome man! I'm just so sorry that it took so long for us to hook up and get that bad boy on your car. I guess we all need to work to pay for this habit sometimes.  :cool:  :-)

Here are some pictures (if they work!) Of the C-Bar, as well as the stock bar that came with my S4.

It's a funny thing, but that S4 subframe is slightly different than either the Audi A4 or VW subframes. There was a slight depression where the bar mounts to the frame that was causing me some griff for about two minutes. Then I got it. Use longer bolts and some special spacers. Problem solved and the bar fits perfectly. The hole spacing was the same as for all the V6 cars. This car validates the need for this bar. Audi could see that something was needed on the S4, so why not for the rest of the line? Simple, it's a cost factor.  :roll:

Anyhow, thanks for the pictures Jonathan. I'm going to steal that bottom side of your S4 pic to put on my home page! Hope you don't mind.  :P  :-D

Alan's rear sway bar wasn't as difficult as we both were thinking. It actually went on quite nicely. There were only a couple of spots that gave us any real pause, but those got overcome quickly. Alan's car is one tight Mo Fo!!! Solid!!!!!!! :smile:
