anyone fitted an anti lift kit to their car?

did you fit it yourself and if so did you get the geometry re set afterwards?

cheers

I have one I am just waiting to get my Coil overs to install it.  Whiteline said to have the tracking done after the install so that is in my intentions.

yeah everyone seems to say get the alignment done at the same time.

my local 'proper' alignment centre charge about £65 for 4 wheel alignment. might as well let them fit the WALK kit if I'm paying that for alignment.

once its on the ramp it can't take much more than 30-60 minutes to fit? looks straight forward.

Again, SteveP fitted a WALK kit to his mk6 GTI. In fact he fitted most of the bolt on goodies such as ARBs, intakes, exhaust etc etc.
It has been a popular mod with mk5 owners for quite some time.

I've got the Whiteline Anti Lift kit fitted,
it is a must to get the geometry checked afterwards, as half the cars that come from the factory are wrong  :sad:

also did you fit the anti bump steer kit while you were one?

it says on their website most cars have 2mm flex but the golf has 8mm due to poor positioning of the track rod end.
