There was a thread a while back that outlined the difference between the two,
does anyone have a link to it?

Specifically my question is, if I have a MY 2000 B5, what perches do I have. Was it split mid year?

Saturday I'm going to be installing new struts/springs in the car. I have the grooved Bilstiens and I believe that I need to set the hight differently depending oh what perches I have for a more even drop.

I hope this made sense, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving!

either way i think you still use the stock perch. i ran into this problem when i was installing my suspension setup. just make sure that you have the correct seat that the perch sits on with the adjustable fronts.

Well if I have the late vin perches, which of the 5 notches on the struts should I set it at for the most even drop?
