I have ordered a set of Koni Adjustables, H&R Race kit, 25mm front swaybar, and 28mm rear sway bar. Does anyone have the same set up out there? How do you like it? Have you ran into any probles with the drop or over/understeer?
It was really tough to decide between the race and the sport kit. For all with the H&R kit please tell me which kit you went with and why? Just alittle worried that the race kit may be too much for a daily driver. Hope I am wrong

Re: Suspension upgrade, what can I expect? (Sinister)

I have Koni adjustables's and H&R Sports on my Jetta VR6, and like it alot.
I also have both front and rear sways, but haven't installed them yet. I can't
wait. Anyhow, I'm pretty happy with the ride and handling as is - I can't
imagine wanting things too much stiffer for daily driving, unless your roads
are really smooth. Just me though.
With the stock swaybar, we had to fabricate extenders for the link pins to
clear the axle in front; the same thing had to be done for the same setup
on a GTI. Having the bigger bar should make this a non-issue.
If anything, it feels a little tailhappy over the previous setup, but that may
just be me. Bear in mind this is a Jetta and not a GTI, so this may not be
such relevant information, as I imagine the balance is a bit different front to
back.
Cheers~

Re: Suspension upgrade, what can I expect? (GTI628V)

I have neuspeed Soft sports w/Koni's, and autotech sways (25F/28R both hollow), but after much trial and error, I find the car to be more neutral WITHOUT the larger front bar (stock front, 28 rear).
The ride is low and controlled, and i can say the car throttle steers very easily and predicable, with a slight hint of push. I can change the slight push to oversteer, but things happen too fast in that mode.
I took the front AT bar out because the car actually pushed more with it than with the stock.
Hope this helps.

Looking is one thing....finding is another. There are only 2 mk4 GTI's I have seen in my town and both are at stock ride height. So its a good idea, just not practicle in my case.
