    So we know Brembo 17z's can be adapted to the front of a b5.5, but will they work on the rear? I'm not taking about front 17z fitting on the back. I'm talking about the rear calipers (whatever model they are) off a Touareg fitting on the rear of a b5.5. The only donor Touareg in my area has the...

    The rears on my B5 sedan have much more wear than the fronts. I never had any tire wear issues with this car. Never drove under-inflated. Only inflated to 34 psi a couple of times when the trunk was loaded up with car camping gear. More detail on the two worn tires. Got 4 new tires...

    2004 GLX 5sp FWD For those of you who have installed PSS9's on all 4 corners, how does the metal threaded adjustment piece fit on the lower spring perch? Does this the metal piece sit metal to metal on the spring perch? And what the hell is the bolt in the center for? I assume it's to secure the...

    I'll be getting an rs6 front bumper soon and I'm looking to complete the kit with sides and a rear valance. Would prefer if it was votex but I'm open to other models depending on looks and condition of the pieces. Looking to keep the cost approx. $300-$350 for everything. If anyone still has...

    I just had my cup kit installed on my b6 Wagon (1.3" Front, 1.25" Rear). When I eyeball it, and do the finger test the rears are a bit higher by about half an inch. I would have expected the fronts to be a little higher, since it's higher with the stock suspension and the difference in drop...

    Do I need to reuse the rubber spring bushing at the top? I have ST coilovers and the ST adjustment piece seems to fit nicer without.

    Title says it. I'm just trying to decide whether to rotate my tires one more time or let it be. I have bit more tread on fronts than rears, so I expect I should leave them that way. 1.8T, FWD. I've only rotated them twice in 40k miles, and have about 12-15k miles of tread left.

    As the title says, I replaced my rear door 6.5s today and afterward my sub was not working. The sub is a kenwood with a built in amp. The sub's fuse is good and none of the wiring has come loose. Any ideas?

    Thanks to Forum Sponsor Mike at importrp for hooking me up. While I await the arrival of the PBR/Axxis Metal Master pads from the other side of the country, I wanted to find out what you guys reccommend to paint/coat the center hub portion of the rotor to prevent it from rusting. Is there a...

    I just got an audison amp and some hertz energy series comps for the front of the car. Does anybody run the fronts from and amp and rears from the deck? I am told that it will sound much better than if I tried to run all from the deck and I can adjust the amp to get the right balance. I have...

    I know Dub-on-Dubs had a set on his Wagon. I think he was running 235-30 w/tire stretched out. Anyone know if a 245-30 will fit with the car dropped? I looked for some old pics of his car but all i can see are red boxes?
