Tubular Front Cross Bar – VW MK2 | Corrado

The Fabless Tubular Front Cross Bar is a direct replacement for the factory MK2 Golf/Jetta front cross member.

The frame rail mounting holes are slotted on the bar for easier installation and washers are provided for use between the Tubular Front Cross Bar and the frame rails for proper fitment.

Our Tubular Front Cross Bar is stronger, stiffer and lighter than the factory front support. The integrated front engine mount decreases engine movement resulting in more power transferred where you want it. The cross bar itself weighs 5.6kg and the front engine mount with bushing weighs just under 1kg (the mount weight fluctuates slightly based on engine selection). 

Made from mild steel, beautifully TIG Welded and coated with black powder coat for durability.
