Alright guys...its time for suspension. Theirs not much available for the Jetta Wagon, but this is what is..
1. Neuspeed Sport Spring / shock combo
2. H&R Sport Spring / shock combo
3. FK Cup Kit 40mm
4. H&R Cup Kit
5. VW/Eibach springs (or Pro-Kit)

Can't be too stiff. I have a kid on the way, ride comfort is my main concern and I would like to know which of the above setups would be better for the daily family driver. I had the KW coilovers on the old MK3 but that would be way too harsh of a ride....Any pics or experience would be awesome.
THANKS

I'm probly going to go w/ the VW/Eibach suspension. Not too much of a drop. Just get a good set of shocks that have adjustable dampining and you can have it stiff when you want and soft for the wife and kid

Bilstein Sport struts with H&R Sport springs... we have been selling this setup for a LONG time and everone who has done it has loved it. Its not to stiff but it gives you much improved handiling and a 1.5" drop.
Cheers

Autotech ClubSport Kit. Excellent combination of improved handling and near stock ride quality.

I think around 1.3"
The Eibach Pro Kit springs for the Wagon are model # 8577.140
Most places won't have them in stock until end of May. Many people told me that these springs ride smooth as butter. Personally, I'd probably match them with a softer shock then Bilstein for people with families, like Boge Pro Gas. Many people don't realize these work well with a mild drop. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
http://www.SHOX.com can package Boge shocks and Eibach springs with a vwvortex member discount.
