    Hello all, I had ordered Boge front shock absorbers for my 98' 1.8t. While it states on the invoice that shocks were Boge, I received Sachs. When I called the customer representative, he repeatedly told me they are the same. Elsewhere on this forum, I read that while they are the same, Sachs...

    Rumor has it that Sachs has a secret clutch kit that includes the sport clutch (higher clamping force) and a solid non-lightened flywheel. My source is getting me the info, he's ordered three of them so far with good reports from the field. This is 1.8t specific, not sure if there is any...

    Just replaced the shocks/springs on my 2003 1.8T GLS sedan with Konis and Sofsports. The car had what look to me to be the VW lowering springs "Sport Suspension Kit" (Eibachs) and stock Sachs shocks. 30K miles on each. The Eibach's lower more than the Sofsports and look good with 17" wheels...

    Is there any thing I should worry about If I get this combo? Any drawbacks, like the clutch burning out quicker?

    Has anyone used the Sachs performance suspension kit? Impressions? Is the kit the same for B5 and B5.5? The parts numbers look the same but decipering their catalog is proving difficult for me. http://www.sachsracing.com/owx_medien/media30/3097.pdf

    Is the Sach suspension kit the same as the eibach kit? I noticed that is has eibach springs. I found one of the Sachs kits cheap, but was unsure if they were any good. What is the drop on one of these kits? They claim 35mm (1.4"). How about ride? I seem to remember that the eibach is closer to...

    I have a used Sachs sport suspension kit for sale. This is a setup with Eibach springs and Sachs shocks. I was told when I was shopping for a kit that it gives a better ride than the Bilsteins but still handles very well with around a 1 1/2" drop. The wife is driving the car now and doesn't like...
