Ok so I think I am going to go for the weitec gt kit, but I want to replace some parts that need to be while i do the job. Could someone make a list of wear parts that I should replace with other parts like I would get with the cup kit from potterman? I heard vr6 mounts are a good idea , but a list of everything I would need to order would be great, if you knew of any cheap places to order from that would be great too.
thanks,
chris

Re: suspension parts to replace (igneousGOlF)

Evolution Sports sells the most complete H&R Cup Kit. Their kit includes additional items like:
1) front bearings and mounts
2) rear bushings
3) rear bump stops
I believe that's all the extras you need to change.

Yes, the upgrade to VR6 mounts are highly recommended. You do have to purchase an upgrade kit, I believe, to do so. As for bearings, replacement is not absolutely necessary, but if you have (i guess) over 55,000 miles on your car do it while everything is apart. Good luck!

Re: suspension parts to replace (vwcruisn)

The 96.5-> kit will work with VR6 strut bearings. I believe the 93-96.5 (to VIN 70440 in 96) uses the late A3 suspension if you move to the VR6 strut bearings. I forget precisely what the difference is, but it has something to do with the struts and the diameter of the shaft.
It's also a good idea to change your ball joints while you're changing the suspension. It's another $35 and you don't need to worry about it for a while.
