ECS Tuning Rear Upper Stress Bar Kit - Mk7 Golf


ECS Tuning Rear Upper Stress Bar Kit - Mk7 Golf

Our ECS Tuning Rear Stress Bar Kit stiffens the chassis in the rear of your Volkswagen MK7/MK7.5 Golf, GTI, Golf R in the area most prone to chassis flex during hard cornering or changes in road surfaces. Our Stress Bar helps to stiffen the rear chassis from undesired torsional flexing of the body which allows for faster turn-in speed and flatter cornering, while reducing chassis creaks and groans.

Our Rear Stress Bar Kit achieves all of these great benefits with little intrusion in the cabin, maximizing cargo area, while maintaining functionality with the rear seatbacks in all positions, with no noticeable increase in NVH. The entire assembly is easily removed in minutes and requires no permanent drilling or cutting into the body.


  • In-house designed and engineered in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility, using FARO ARM laser scanning technology for precise fitment 

  • Upper mounting brackets effectively grab the inside of the rear seat latch anchor

  • Upper mounting brackets are machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and are finished in a black anodized coating

  • Rear Stress bar is made from heavy duty 3mm wall DOM steel tubing, powdercoated in a tough wrinkle black finish and features a turnbuckle style adjustment for simple on-car tensioning

  • Heavy duty zinc-plated rod ends with LH and RH threads feature high quality bearings and locking jam nuts to secure final adjustments

  • Total kit adds only 3.2kg


  • Upper mounting brackets and hardware 

  • Upper stress bar with rod ends and jam nuts 


  • By tensioning the body together in the largest void of the vehicle, body flex is reduced. This improves the handling of the vehicle by reducing understeer, in addition to allowing faster turn-in speed all while reducing common creaks and groans.
