Got a question about the 1.8T springs. Are they any different than the regular MK4 springs on say a 2.0L?
Do they drop the car at all?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
I tried the search but couldn't get anything...

My understanding was that the 2.0 and the 1.8T suspesnsions were the same for MOST cars. Some 1.8T models have the OEM sport suspension pre-installed, however, which includes stiffer springs and thicker sway bars.

IIRC the 337 and 20AE come standard with the 'upgraded' springs offered in the VW DriverGear catalog.... they sit lower than GTI's with the OEM Sport Supension... not sure about the shocks...

What???? The VW DriverGear springs are European Eibach ProKits. The 337 and 20AE do not come with European ProKits.

I think 1.8T GTI and Jetta Wolfsburg have stiffer springs but not much lower if any. When I was going to ask for a price of my stock springs, they couldn't tell by my model, wanted to know the color code on the spring (mine's brown/green).
