Question for the more suspension-oriented folks, does anyone know if the rear anti-sway bar upgrade for the GSW/Mk7/A3 is compatible with the Taos FWD rear torsion beam? Seems like it could be a solid upgrade for handling feel and is reasonably priced.

Edit: I just noticed that it now lists the Taos as compatible, I don't remember seeing that before. Has anyone installed it yet to see how it feels?

Actually a better question now would be, which would be a better upgrade from a daily driver perspective, the torsion bar upgrade, or upgrading to Bilstein B6s in the back?

If you are looking for handling in a daily driver, in this order:

Wheels/tires
Sport springs
Shocks/struts
Torsion/sway bars
I should clarify that my ultimate goal would be to reduce the amount of body roll in corners and stiffen up the damping- the suspension on the Taos is generally tuned well but the rear is just a bit underdamped imo. Both of those should also help accomplish the goal of improving stability for towing. That's why I'm looking at the torsion bar and shocks first.

Did anyone end up trying this? I'm super curious as well. For almost any FWD car I have owned, I've always installed upgraded sway bars before. And it was best bang for bucks in terms of handling mod.
