I am getting ready to buy some springs for my mk1 rocco, and i just don't think a 1.25-1.5 inch drop will be enough to take away the 4x4 look. I was thinking 2" would be perfect, but some pics with different springs and heights would be cool, and any suggestions.

Re: 1.5" drop not enough!! (sinister4g63)

More than a 1.5 inch drop, and you'll have rubbing issues unless you have rims with more offset on the front. Also, coilovers are really the only way to succesfully drop over 1.5 inches, and they start at around $700 for four.

yes a spring that says a 1.5in drop will get rid of the look. and they will settle in over time. for our cars design 2 in and lower will only make it look "cool" not make it handle any better...unless the spring rate was way way high.

Re: 1.5" drop not enough!! (roccostud)

well i found a pair of 60/40mm springs, and was wondering if anyone knew what kind of offset I would have to get for 15' wheels and what the biggest tires I could use are.
