Am posting some new pics (the last post was a disaster because of the album host) of the Koni adjustables and Eibach Prokit springs that I got installed last week. The springs drop 1.2" all around. What do you think?
looks great. I like that drop, not too low especially for the roads in nj & pa. I may go with same combo. How much for the install if you dont mind me asking? Thanks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I have posted a review of the suspension (ride and handling) in the Suspension Tuning forum ... here is a link: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=229717
Any more drop and I'd be babying the car around and fearing when I would lose my oilpan ... the roads here are not exactly "carpeted" if you get my drift
lookin good man. You'll be so surprised how flush you'll look with the fenders when you go to a bigger rim even though the dimensions are the same overall. You'll understand what I mean when you hit 17's or 18's.
I personally love that drop. Not too high, not too low! Makes the tire fill the wheelwells nicely. And, it looks like you've taken great care of your car--the paint looks excellent. Keep up the good work! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
So, would you recommend the Koni shocks over the Eibach? I was going to do Eibach Pro-Kit all around, but after seeing your drop, I'm thinking about doing the same combo. What do you think?
I usually run 15mm spacers in the back ... they are out for the winter. I am planning to get the 8mm spacers for the front especially after H&R came out with the lipped ones similar to the 15mm. May go for a wider rim to get it flush with the fender wall ... am searching
Rich, the drop looks low up front probably because of the weight of the VR6 ... I did not want to risk the 1.5" H&R sports as that may require a new front sway bar and I may be risking oil pan damage. You need to come and drive this setup sometime.
