Again its no comment from me  :lipsrsealed:

Why not  :smiley:

I am not keen on the idea, to me Polo ones are designed to work with a lower kurb weight so I cannot see them lasting long on a Golf.

lol The modifications i suggest seem to go wrong for "the Dave"  :laugh:

Also so people can comment, 10mm should level this out nicely do we think?



It's on a Jamex kit shocks and springs, about 45mm, but custom rear springs which are probably around a 50mm drop... so hoping 10mm at the front will just close the front arch gap a little better :)

Looks ok to me, if you drop another 10mm on the front I can see you getting rubbing issues.

Will find somewhere that sells them in a mo, limited on my phone lol

Didn't notice them being any harsher and definitely noticed them dropping the front end down
