Today, I removed the rear, bottom spring hats for the KW coilovers, and I got dropped another .5 inch. So, I would like others to post measurements, and engine, transmission, 4WD/2WD so we can compare suspension components. For measureing, measure from the center of your wheel to the center, top portion of your wheel opening.

Engine: 1.8T
Transmission: 5 Spd M
4WD/2WD: 2WD
Suspension: KW V1's

Front Measurement: 12.50"
Rear Measurement: 12.75"

TIA,
Steve

So you removed that rubber disc insulation from the adjustable seat... very nice drop... which way is your adjustable facing , is underneath the spring or on top...

nice work buddy

I'll have to take some photos for you. I'm running V2s with the rear adjuster on the top and the rubber disc removed on top as well. I think it's a 1.5 finger gap in front with 1 finger in back. The rear springs seem to have settled a little bit.

I was at a fist... after suspension i was at one and a half fingers. Now becuase the springs settled, I am at not even a finger now :nervous:
I am running the FK cup kit and there is no way to adjust the hieght, unless i put a spacer.. but i love the slammed look, so forget that.
I am getting about a 4.5 inch clearance.
