dont mean to 'jack the thread, but...
I am experiencing similar probs. I am not as heavily modded as Baz, i only have a chip, intake and Eibach lowering springs (yes standard 'sports' shocks', but i am having a mare putting that power down!
I too wish to upgrade the suspension and i noticed Koni shocks mentioned. I have also been advised Bilstein b4 (?) shorten travel thingies. In addition i belive that the top bearing mounts to the shocks are knockered (clonking going round corners).
So my question, coil overs aside, what is the best shock to go with the VW/Eibach lowering springs in order to retain a reasonable ride and increase grip (part # if poss)
The top bearing mounts, are they seperate items, like the Mk2's, and can i buy uprated versions and where from?
Thanks guys and sorry for jacking the thread!
