Since my wife got her Passat last weekend I have decided I want one too.
My biggest problem they are to low to the ground. I do a lot of fishing and driving on dirt roads around lakes in the country. I would like a Passat wagon but I would need to lift it a couple of inches so not to scrape on every bump. I used to like the WRX wagon, but I don't like the new body style. So has any one lifted a Passat befor?

any pics?


thanks J.

Actually, VW makes a rough road suspension for the passt that raises oit some. Was sold in mainly 3rd world markets. I believe its listed as 1BB. I know you can source the euro 1BE here, so you might be able to get that.
Dunno if it can be sourced here.
Some coil overs can be raised aboive stock.
Also, if you do do this, get a skid plate from dieselgeek. You might want to improve it to better cover the tranny.
Otherwise, you'll have to go custom.

I'm having a hard time figuring out if this is a joke or not.

You might be the second person, ever, to ask about lifting a Passat. I believe that the answer is: there are no existing kits for this application.

edit: Ah, to hell with it. Once again, I am forced to remove my foot from my mouth. Can a brotha get a prybar?

why not get a TOUAREG..?

that is not an option. I would keep my Jeep befor I bought one of those.

I will look on the internet at suspension mods.
Do they make longer axles for the Passat in the after market world?
I have only lifted solid axle vehicles in the past and they are easy to lift.
I don't know much about indipendentsuspensions
this is close to the look I am looking for

With that you'd probably just dial in the 1bb alignment specs and go.
Get a skid plate though, don't wanna lose your oil pan

You could always spring for an Audi allroad quattro.
I'd rather have the Allroad 2.7T in many ways over my Passat. Increased suspension height and horsepower it's a no brainer for you.
