For those of you who are using these springs or for anyone who knows, do you need to get different shocks or are the stock ones ok to use. Also is the drop truely 1". I have a 2000 B5 if that helps. Please post some pics of the drop if you have them. Thanks

See if I can find another shot of my former 01 GLX. I had the OEs and Bilstein Sports... About 3/4-1" front & 3/4" rear.

i had them on my 2000 passat, and would advise against using the stock shocks. mine were fine for a while but got bouncy -- get bilsteins or something to go with them.

The drop on mine was 1" in the rear and 1/2 up front because of the high VIN crap. adjustable bilsteins will take care of that (I think that is what VWGUY did).

here is mine with OEs and stock shocks:
