I know for a fact they are hollow.. Removed them off a friends car and as light as they are there is no way they are solid.

Though i didn't cut them open to find out for sure..

Are the Whiteline bars solid as well?

Yes Whiteline's are solid. The only aftermarket ones that are hollow are Tanabe (Chromoly) and TRD. I do not know if TRD made them for the Mk3 though. (I'm making a sway bar portion of a suspension faq). Dr. Jones has been so kind as to agree to measure the stock sway bars off one of the many parts cars he has, so I'll know the diameter later on.

I'm currently trying to calculate how much stiffer each of the bars are compared to stock (very fun stuff). Joe @ horsepowerfreaks once said the Whitelines are 50% and 30% stiffer (f/r) and I'm trying to get a best estimation for the other solid bars based on his quote.

Please do. And if it isn't too much trouble, could you measure the wall thickness of the front and back sway bars? ;)

Thanks
