Re: bumpstops, lowering and the MK4 (bugged)

I don't know about that on the MKIV's H&R actually suggests that you DON'T cut the bumpstops. take a look at the top of your spring it may be hitting the car's underbody this has happened to me before and I had to actually grind down some excess welding that was getting hit.

quote:[HR][/HR]what part of the underbody might my spring hit? It fits into a little space at the top and bottom that holds the 1st coil's worth---wouldnt it only occupy/touch that part of the car?
I think my rears might be too tight (light in the back, very stiff). I may wait a week. Then loosen the rears, and if that's still not enough, I may go to the GT kit. The noise makes me crazy~![HR][/HR]​
Try to get under the car while its on the ground and look at the springs, you'll see that they come VERY close to a point on the underbody thats where I'm talking about you'll want to keep an eye on that location if your getting a knocking in the rear.
