what i did was weld mk1 lower mounts on to the chapman strut, i know its a passat, but the mk1 mount is most similar to the syncro

and my rear goes pretty damn low, this is at about 20psi, the rear control arm sits on the pinch weld

Re: The Easter Bunny MK1 Build (Full Collapse)

after doing some research on the air forums i decided to only do 4 valves. Im basically just looking to go up and down no need to go side to. Its also the most cost efficient for my build.
So i went ahead and ordered the hot rod economy kit from AAC.
Besides what is included in the kit what else do i need besides a water trap as far as management?
heres the kits info.


3/8" 150 PSI Hot Rod Economy Front/Back Kit $499.99

I'd suggest getting a fitting to drain air out of the tank if you need to. It makes things a lot simpler imo.

if you just want to drain air, then you can open the watertrap and let the air come out...if there is a significant amount of water in the tank, then a drain on it would be good to have
