Ever Seen a Swaybar do This!?!??!
Heard an odd clunk going over a very small expansion joint in the road, and then there was a clanging during load changes while shifting, braking etc. Took a look when I got home, and this is what I found!

This was a 32 mm Cobb front bar. It was well used: 2 years autocrossing on an 2008 DS speed3, and 1 year on my 2010 speed3. There must have been some kind of defect that was exacerbated by all the racing. A few of my engineer friends tell me is a torsion fracture, which makes perfect sense. We were going to swap the stock bar back in anyways, so ultimately, no harm done. I have been driving the last few days without a front bar, and it's not all that bad. Corner exit grip is awesome!
