    I recently put on some 18 x 8 rs6 reps on my 2004 passat. I'm trying to figure out which springs will give me the lowest drop, or I should say close the "suv gap" the most. I cant afford coilovers right now so that would be out of the question. I hear neuspeed gives you 2"? thanks in advance!

    Anyone know what the stock ride height on a 2000 B5 1.8T would be? I'm trying to figure out how much of a drop I currently have. Thanks in advance,

    Well, mine will be here before the end of the week, and I'd like some info from present V-Maxx coilover owners. I'd like to get them adjusted as close to where I want them while they are being installed. Here is a pic of my car with the Neuspeed springs, and for me the height is just about...

    I have searched and cannot find a DIY about control arms that includes setting the car at ride height before tightening everything up. I apologize if I missed it. The upper CA's are set at 43mm from the top strut housing correct? And the lowers I guess you just set the car on ramps to...

    I just put them on last night after having additional grooves cut on my Koni yellows to lower it more. I put them on and instead of a 2.5 finger wheel gap, I have a 1 finger gap now. Which is OK, but the tops of the wheels tilt way in and the control arm is like 1/8" of an inch from my tires...

    Hello to all, just discovered this forum and think it's great! I have a 2001(B5) wagon GLS V6 that I am thinking about lowering and putting wheels on. What do you guys think is the perfect ride height that is practical? I was thinking of going with 18" wheels and lowering it 1.5" to keep it from...

    Hey everyone, I recently installed neuspeed sport springs on my 05 1.8T and Today I noticed that my front passenger side ride height is about .4'' lower than the drivers side? What do you all think could be the problem? I called Neuspeed and they said it was most likely a bumpstop issue, but...

    I'm getting kwv1s in the mail soon as well as new wheels. They're 18x8" with a et35 and I'll be running 8mm spacers up front and 15mm spacers in the rear. I know I'm getting 215s cus I want a slight stretch, but my question is should I get a 35 or a 40 sidewall? I'm going LOW so if any of you...

    I know there's a ton of susp threads, but here's one more. I've read through oodles of suspension posts, but can't find what I want. I'd like to keep stock height but have a bit stiffer springs. Closest I've seen is H&R OE Sports, I believe, but they do drop an inch or so. Is there another...

    I know there is a thousand threads on suspension, but I am just trying to see which spring strut combo you think will give the height on the audi a4's.
