I'm assuming these act to preload the spring a bit and/or to account for a shorter spring free length (so the spring doesn't un-seat when in full rebound)??
Anyone installed aftermarket lowering springs or even just replaced the factory springs with ones from a sport package (GLI/337/20AE, etc...) and left out the spacer? What's the outcome?

cheers

Re: Strut spacers on factory MKIV sport suspension... (gehr)

No need to worry... I had already left them in... Just curious if people remove them and what results were.... QUITE stoked with the ride & handling improvements with the Eibach kit http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Strut spacers on factory MKIV sport suspension... (MI_canuck)

and FWIW... my car sits no lower than what a European Bora with factory sport suspension or even VR6 jetta for that matter...
the Eibach kit does not "slam" the car down... from my factory height (had sport package), front came down about 3/8" (10mm), and rear about 7/8" (23mm)

cheers
