I've noticed that most aftermarket springs manufactures for the Passat list different part numbers for the 1998-99 car and the 2000 and up. What's the difference between the two? I've always been under the impression that mechanically, all B5 cars were pretty much the same?

The front spring perch position changed about 10mm higher on the newer models.
This means the free length of the stock front spring is slightly shorter for the newer models. They're physically shaped the same otherwise.
