Achtuning is pleased to present the Racingline range of parts developed by Volkswagen Racing UK and distributed exclusively through APR’s global dealer network! Upgrade your factory front suspension with the VWR Adjustable Drop Links. These were developed for APR’s race cars to allow them to lower the ride height yet keep the pre-load on the anti roll bar even. Additionally, by removing the soft rubber bushing from the factory links, cornering responses are sharpened.
This is an ideal upgrade for all cars running lowered suspension and/or up-rated anti-roll bars. A true race-car part, but with no compromise in daily driving.
Left / Right threaded ends make for easy length adjustment to eliminate pre-load and adjust the link length when changing between adjustment holes on your adjustable anti roll bar. Solid aerospace-quality rose joint ends replace the rubber bushing in the factory joint, so there is no compliance giving a direct connection to the anti roll bar. This can be felt through sharper turn in.
The VWR Adjustable Drop Links are a very universal product as they are fully compatible with any suspension and any anti roll bar products, not just the H&R and VWR upgrades we offer.

What is a Drop Link?
A drop link is a long bar that is used to attach the front anti roll bar ends to the brackets on the front shock absorber on most modern cars. On a lowered car, these fixed-length factory links push the anti roll bar ends down, and force the link to sit at a sharper angle.
Performance drop-links such as the VWR links utilize heavy duty steel ball joint ends that adjust & rotate to any angular combination. The light weight aluminium bodies (made from CNC Machined 7075 Aluminum) are finished in a beautiful anodised grey-blue coating.
The links provide 30mm center to center length adjustment. The link lengths are 300mm – 330mm (stock is 330mm).
The ball joint ends are the highest quality motorsport-specification heat treated nickel-plated steel, with high polish finish stainless steel inserts. The joints themselves have a PTFE liner bonded to the inner surface with hardened and hard chrome-plated maintenance free roller ball bearings. The links themselves have LH and RH thread at alternate ends.
For serious track use, the adjustment is used to fine tune the anti roll bar preload once the car is corner-weighted.

Our VWR Intake has arrived from APR…
We’ve just added the intake to our online catalog and will be installing this one on the Achtuning Golf R immediately. Should have a decent impression of what we “feel” this will do for the R at the track this weekend. Click the image to view product details about the VWR intake.
