Re: is it common for springs not to fit? H&R race springs are too small at the top. (GTI2.0T)

hmmm....sounds like you got a later style spring or it's the same as the gti spring. Which may be the case. Just get a later style GTI spring cap and it will work fine. The cap on the Corrados has a bit bigger diameter, expcept for like the 94's which have the same size as the gti.

H&R screwed up by sending me the wrong springs once too. I didn't figure it out until my buddy showed up to pick his car up and I dropped it down off the jack stands- the jack was stuck under the car and we had to lift the car off the jack! I contacted H&R and they were jerks about it telling me I must have done something wrong because they sent the right springs and that they were the proper numbers. I ordered Neuspeed springs and returned the H&Rs. Problem solved.
If you do get spring caps you might want to get the lowering caps to give you an added drop.

My springs had the right numbers on the wrong springs. I ordered H&R sport springs- the ones that are only supposed to lower the car a max of .5". The ones I was sent dropped the car so far that most of the tires on a 17" rim was tucked. After telling H&R this they still insisted that I had the right spring because of the number. Thats when I ordered the Nuespeeds instead. When the Nuespeed springs came in I removed the H&Rs and returned them.
