    So I have them installed. Really nice. All it needs is sway bars mainly on rear. Car lowered by 1/2" and has a better rack to it than with US stock springs. Added A4 upper strut brace as well. Big difference in handling now. I still think though this car is not super exciting to drive. Love...

    Hello all, After 65k on an Eibach/Koni FSD set up one of my rear shocks has gone bad, creating some unwanted handling issues. What is the recommended option for replacement? I can't seem to find an option for individual replacement of this particular Koni shock. If I switch the rears to a Koni...

    I would like to know if someone already upgrade their Passat b6 Sedan or Wagon with Koni FSD with OEM springs. Did you see a lot of improvement on the handling. Do you think by changing the spring as well will make a huge difference except lowering the car. I struggling to change only the...

    Installed FSD's with stock springs and been on it for the pass 4 months. Great shocks!Comfy!Steady!But a bit bouncy at uneven roads and bit noisy when hit harsh roads. Overall big improvement from stock. Body roll can still be felt though. Read about the Eibach Prokit combo with the FSD's...

    I just ran across this looking for some part numbers... $549 for a set of Koni FSDs for the B5.5 @ Koni FSD Take advantage of it while you can. I wish I could jump in on it. Apparently this is a reputable retailer well known in the TDI community.

    I want to lower my '10 B6 TDI estate and am considering a Koni FSD/spring package. I've got a set of 18" Golf R rims with 245/40's and I'm chasing a slightly lower than OEM look (-30mm). I was hoping for a ride similar to ACC in sport mode, nothing bone jarring but something that lets me feel...

    I have two questions when installing Koni FSD shocks on my 2001 B5 1.8T FWD at 96K. Question 1. Do I still need the black plastic protective cap from the stock shock? ( this is the black cap sitting tight on the shock body, not the dust cup hanging aloof on top) I am asking this because it...

    Anybody running FSD's? On stock or lowering springs. I have a 2003 varient 1.8t 5 spd. I was running koni yellows and neuspeed sports, but was too low for me. Was about 2" drop, sold to another member. Loved the ride, I was thinking of going with H&R OE's and FSD's any imput would be appreciated.
