Here's a strange question........
« on: 28 June 2009, 20:06 »
Ok, so I've bought my first gti, an 8v to boot, and I love it to bits...... :smiley:  I'm not out to beat anyone to anywhere, just to have fun.....and I'm having plenty of that !
             Thing is, it's been lowered on Jamex springs and shocks.....an to be honest, it's just a tad too low.
        Is there any way to raise it up slightly, say 20- 25mm, without changing the springs?
         I was thinking of making (I'm a machinist ) some nylon spacers to fit above the struts. Has anyone done this? I know most if not all queries relate to how to LOWER the car, but in my case I'm being awkward. :cool: :cool:

As above fit new springs or change to coilovers and pick the height you want.
