Lowering Springs

Recommended Posts

HI all,

Im looking to lower my 2000 sport to give a better look and better handling. Can anyone give any sugestions as to which springs to buy, cost, and whether tracking etc will need to be done after?

Thanks in advance, your all very helpful

Eibach springs (30mm drop) are pretty popular in the club as a cheaper lowering option than coilovers. Can get them from TDI - see link at top of page. Got mine fitted by a local garage for about £150. You should get tracking done about 500 miles after fitting.

Was going for H&Rs too but the place I was getting them fitted was struggling to source some cause of a manufacturing problem at the time. In the end got some Eibachs myself for them to fit.

For better handling, go for the TTE antiroll bar upgrade.

A good set of springs will last between 4/5 years

I think anything up to 30 or 35mm is OK with the standard shocks, anything more than that and you may run into trouble
