Complete Eibach Pro-System for 1.8T Passat Sedans (excluding the new 1.8T 4Motion).

System was on a 2003 1.8T Sedan for about five months / 5,500 miles. Rode silky smooth and was just as comfortable as stock, but no more "pitch & roll" when accelerating/decelrating/turning. Lowers 1.3 inches all the way around. I will even ship it in the Eibach Pro-System box. The only part "missing" is the Eibach spring seats for the front struts. I have been told purchasers of this system can either re-use the stock spring seats or purchase the "low-vin" springs seats that came on 1998-early 2000 Passats for an additional 10mm of lowering in the front.

System goes for $600 new, asking $412 shipped.

Damn, if this post was 1-2 months form now they would be sold, i'll be needing these about that time for my 17's. I'll just have to be touareg style a little longer :( :cry: :cry: :( :cry:

Bump for a good deal :thumbup:

im guessing the springs are already mounted on the shocks so all the installation will require is a wheel alignment, right? if so i will go ahead and get them for my 1.8t will it work on the 98 models?

Yes,it will work. Expect an extra .3" drop with the V6. Trans will also
make a difference.

Wooohoooo, this will be mine soon! Can't wait to install them. I loved my H&R OE sports, but I really wanted something a tad lower.
Thanks,
Lelo :thumbup:
