  1. Golf/GTI VII Parts
    Hi all, Apologies my first post about these was in the wrong place and got deleted. I sold my Mk7 R a month back and I had a few parts I never got to install and can't return. They are in the original box and packaging. I had also bought new strut hardware/hats from ECS for the install to...
  2. Scirocco
    Hello, World - Background on me, this is my 10th or so VW, but when I was younger I was never mechanically inclined - just bought/drove/sold mainly...NOW! I remember in like 2008 I needed a clutch on my 2003 GLI, dealer, $550 later - new clutch! I'm not doing that this time around, I'll try to...
  3. Golf/GTI VI
    Hi all, first post here thanks for all the help from these forums in the past. I'm looking opinions on an issue that's been dogging me for a while. When accelerating hard coming out of sharp turns, I'm getting a real nasty high pitched rubbing noise coming from the wheels (happens on both left...
  4. Jetta/GLI VI
    So I’ve got a 2017 GLI and I’ve been hearing so many mixed messages about getting lowering springs. The goal is a little lower and a little stiffer. I’ve been looking at H&Rs super sport springs, lowering about 1.5” and I’ve been told it ‘will mess up the geometry, make my car undrivable, and...
  5. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hello, so I’ve recently decided to lift my Golf, and need some help with the rear strut configuration. The rear lift is 3”, all with springs, no spacers. My issue is with the strut travel. All upward travel has been eaten up by the bigger springs. My question is this: is there another VW...

  7. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey, Looking to lower my car with coilovers. Do I need to think about changing anything else? Or can I just buy the coils and plug and play type of thing?? It's going to be driven once or twice weekly. Thank you
  8. Cabriolet
    Hi everybody. This is my first ever post on a forum like this ever, sorry if I get anything wrong... Anyways, my 1989 Cabriolet was in need of new struts as the old ones were leaky and overall just not doing their job. Not a problem, as I ordered some Bilstein struts and put them in no problem...
  9. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Has anyone lifted one of these things? I'm trying to figure out if the suspension system is from an mk4 or an mk5 or if it's something completely different. Looking at throwing a tdi engine at it and going up about 4" or so. Any pictures or links would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  10. Jetta/GLI VI
    I installed raceland ultimo coilovers on my 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE and now whenever I accelerate the peddles begin to shake violently and as I continue to accelerate the shaking gets worse Until the whole front of the cabin is shaking side to side quickly. Around 60mph if I’m cruising the shaking...
  11. Suspension Tuning
    I've got a 13 TDI with fixed rear suspension (panhard bar in the rear, not Independent Rear (IRS)) and I'm not sure what I need to do in order to switch completely to airbag suspension. I'm currently on ECS coilovers and when maxed out, my panhard bar essentially shifts the wheels to the right...

  13. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hey all, I've tried to do my best searching the threads for an answer to this question--and while I found a lot of interesting performance mods for my 1.8 T DSG SEL Jetta---I have had a hard time getting a direct solution to increasing the comfort of my ride. I'm not unfamiliar with small...
  14. Golf/GTI VII
    So I have just bought a dcc equiped 2015 Golf 7 GTI, the car came with ST Coilovers and KW DCC delete kit. The car drives fine and the ride is great, but when I corner hard it will throw an AFS Fault on the dash, sometimes followed by a suspension fault message, this annoys me because it will...
  15. Suspension Tuning
    Hey guys first time posting on this forum. I'm planning on building an offroad jetta on a budget, since that I'm a college student. I have an automatic mk6 base model jetta. I noticed that people use jeep springs/ford truck struts to suspension lift, however, they do it on mk4 jetttas. I was...
  16. CC
    Good morning to all, I'm new to the forum, excuse me, I haven't found the place to introduce myself. Let me tell you. In my house we have two Passat CC, one from 2008 and one from 2010. Both have DCC suspension. Both have the same kilometers (120,000 km) and the same engine, but one of them...

  18. Golf V & Jetta V
    I recently purchased an 09 GTI from someone who curb checked alot. It has alot of suspension issues, and the plan was to lower it a small amount anyway. So my question is, how much would i be looking at (est) for a shop to do a full suspension change for lower end performance suspension? Nothing...
  19. Golf I & Jetta I
    I don't need to lower it, I just want it to feel more like a modern car if possible. Also, would be good to know what the cheapest option is and then what my options are further on up the price range. The current suspension that I have is stock, and quite old by the looks of it. It still works...
  20. CC
    So I upgraded the suspension to a bc racing br series kit, new ball joints sway bar links, struts. After 3 days of getting it back together the cv axles aren't engaging when put in gear. I never removed them just moved them aside while changing everything. Anybody got an idea of what the issue...
