I have an H&R Cup kit and I'm about to convert the front strut bearings on my Jetta to the VR6 ones. Can I do a similar conversion to the rear? I heard the fronts raise the car a bit. I would also like the rear raised just as much.
If not, is there any other way to raise the rear?

Re: vr6 strut bearings on rear? (mk2.slow)

Yes there is ... I have a set of sleeves that go over the shock body and raise the spring seat by an amount you want. I have a set to raise it by an 1.5" ... i will need it though so it's not for sale.
I know my mechanic got that made at a CNC shop or something like that. You have to make sure that it's the exact dimensions as you don't want to risk the sleeve sliding all the way down the shock because then you'll have more damage than necessary.

Do you have a pic of this? I'm having trouble visualizing where they sit.
