Which lowering springs?
« on: 15 March 2018, 12:04 »
Hello all, new to the forum. I want to put 30mm lowering springs into 2010 match. Planning to buy 18s soon.
I've been doing a lot of research but can't put my finger on the answer I need...

Eibach or H&R?? I want the car to be tight, but I don't want back issues etc! Any advice greatly appreciated.

I don’t own a Mk6 but I have had Eibach Pros on my previous car for 40k and my current Mk7 for 12k and has zero issues.

Did you have standard shocks/dampers?

The Eibach springs just edge it on comfort over the H&R springs.

I`ve used Eibach before and have always been happy with them  :smiley:

I'm looking at lowering too and have DCC, does this mean I need special springs?

Thanks, Charlie.

They are designed to work with standard shocks so I’ve never changed from stock.

Front spring load rating so you'll need to check your front axle weight.
