Then suggest to them look at VW's official accessories catalogue...Went to Inchcape Telford (Big mistake I know) to ask about lowering springs for my Bora.
The reply was that VW never have and never will do lowered springs for any of its models
i was interested to know about the vw suspension as im still undecided whether i want to lower it 30mm, and the 15mm would have been a good halfway point. however, upon reading that it would appear 30mm eibachs would be the better route to take. ideally i dont want to change the shocks, but if i do i dont want hard sporty ones. just a shock (the cheaper the better) which will work well along side the eibachs.Been watching this, I have a couple of questions:
Why do you want a VW lowering kit?
Is it warranty, price or staying OEM for insurance?
I have a suggestion and that's ebay. Find some Anni springs and shocks and use those, they're the best stuff fitted to any 2wd MkIV.
The VW lowering springs don't have the best reputation and are only worth fitting if you put matched shocks on. The reason for this is that when sports suspension was specified as factory fit VW put specific sports shocks on and the car handled OK. When it was specified as dealer fit it was just springs and as we all know standard shocks can't cope with lowered shocks, the car wallows and generally feels soggy.
If you decide OEM is not that imp[ortant after all then you can lower and improve your car much cheaper by fitting some good aftermarket stuff such as Eibach, Koni, H&R, Bilstein etc.
fear not, from richards earlier posts, ive now convinced myself to get shocks too. will go for the bilstein b4's and eibach 30mm springs. selling my wheels so will definitely be able to fund it!Do the shocks as well and on no account skimp on them, they are possibly the most important part of your suspension and it doesn't work without them, once you have the whole system upgraded your car will not only drive better, but safer. More confident handling and shorter stopping distance.
