Product Description is proud to release our new adjustable rear tie bars for the VW MK5/MK6/MK7 and Audi A3 8P and TT MK2 chassis!

Replaces OEM P/N 1K0-501-529F (1K0501529F) and 1K0-501-530C (1K0501530C) or equivalent. builds these adjustable tie rods the way they should be – right here in Atlanta under close supervision in our state of the art machining center.  Suspension components are far too critical to settle for Chinese made garbage with cobbled together hardware.  Read how we manufacture ours below.

These tie rods are the result of our experience designing and developing suspension components used in race environments.  These are sold in sets of 2 (enough for 1 vehicle) and feature precision milled 4340 steel alloy center sections which are powder coated in Bilstein jazz blue or gloss black.  They are rated at over 200 ksi ultimate tensile strength.  Each center body has distinct adjustment flats which are positioned for easy access allowing you to lengthen or shorten the bar while installed on the vehicle.

On the inboard end we install a custom FORGED zinc plated steel poly end with specially formulated racing poly bushings.  These are not cut rate tubes welded onto threaded studs that will break in short order.  Our custom forged poly ends also feature screw in grease fittings (NOT press in), and zinc plated steel sleeves with outer protective hat area to protect the poly bushing.  The threads on our forged fittings are also ROLLED as opposed to lower strength cut threads. If you are looking for a poly end, this one is the ULTIMATE

Outboard, we install GENUINE FK JMX Series zero deflection high radial load PTFE lined spherical joints with protective dust boots preinstalled over specially machined bushings. The fit of the boot over the spherical joint and bushings is nearly water tight. This set up is preferred by racers or those who are looking for the highest level of performance.

For those wanting a spherical inboard joint too, we’ll install the same premium FK JMX series joint as we put on the outboard end – just specify from the dropdown menu during checkout.  Please note using spherical ends on both sides will produce zero deflection and the best handling, but will result in more noise, vibration, and harshness.  It is our suggestion to stick with the poly/spherical set up for all but dedicated racers.

Please compare these aspects when considering upgrading your non-adjustable tie rod ends to adjustable versions.  Flaky vendors who build their parts in China will sell you cut-rate parts that are CRITICAL to your safety and to the safety of others around you!  Don’t make the mistake of skimping out on suspension components - do your homework and compare the components used in these tie rods to ANY other competitor !

Product Reviews

  1. Another amazing product from Gruven 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2016

    I was surprised in my research when I found that no one was making a viable solution for the MK5/6 suspension platform and then I came across Gruven Parts. These are a no compromise solution to a needed part for VW/Audi chassis when lowering! Solid as they come and well thought out!
