Hey guys, was looking at getting lowering springs, but my B5.5 V6 FWD Passat has done 150,000kms (95,000 miles) now, so a lot of suspension places thought my shocks might be getting towards the end of their life too, so may as well replace them both and not double up on labor costs.

Basically, looking at dropping about 1.5 inches all round. About to buy some 19" wheels too. I know I'll lose some of the comfy ride I've got, but I still want it to be fairly good.
Any recommendations for a reasonably priced spring/shock combo? Or should I just go coil overs? I've heard good things about the Eibach pro system..?

Let me know what you think, cheers
