  1. 1BE bump stops with lowering springs?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey how's everyone doing today? I just got a used h&r cup kit in the classifieds and I was wondering if I should go with the 1be bump stops, since they are designed for lowered suspension. I need new bump stops anyway and I don't know if I should get the standard bump stops or the sport bump...

  6. 1BE Conversion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I've finally decided I'm doing the conversion to 1BE +Koni from my H&R Sport + Koni suspension. Troy at 1stvwparts has been really helpful, and has been able to track parts down but they'd have to be ordered from Germany (3-4 weeks delivery). I'm having some trouble deciding the actual...

  12. Bumpstops: cut, 1BE, or nothing

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I will be having some H&R sport springs and Bilstein sport shocks arriving soon and I was wondering what I should do with the bumpstops for this setup. Most of the threads about this deal with the Eibach pro-kit, and had mixed replies anyways. I don't know if the springs are designed to work...

  15. FS V6-Tip 1BE front springs.

    Sold... These are front springs only. They should fit all V6 B5/B5.5 Passats, but are made for B5 V6 Tiptronic. I had them on my wagon and they gave a .25-.5" drop. They are much firmer than stock, so handling is better with less bottoming out. B5 V6 Stick will have no drop. Suspension code...

  19. Koni FSD with 1BE springs?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is it a bad idea? I know the FSD shocks are ride-height-sensitive, but 1BE only drops it by, what, 3/4"? Is that still in the "safe zone"? I ask because if my car lasts the winter, I'm going to put new shocks on it in the spring.
