Hi there, was wandering if anyone has fitted uprated shocks with standard springs, is it worth it or go straight for a full kit, want to keep my ride height as it is but stiffen it up. :0

the 1.8t sport has the top suspension - bar the v6 which unless its a quattro it wont fit even then im sure theres differences

if your your stanard suspension may be showing age by now so fitting uprated shocks - bilstein etc - with vag springs, new top mounts and wishbones ( its easier to change the whole thing rather than the bushes ) and new bushes in the rear as well will probably make a lot of difference.

if you want stiffer springs as well im sure H&R make a short drop kit which will probably be the same as your current springs - the sports suspension sits somewhere around 10-15mm lower than the lower models

sure that will be 1/2" drop
