Disagree. The Touareg fares higher in the figure 8 and skidpad rating than many sports cars do - they also fare extremely well in the canadian moose test.Hey Dapinitial,
Is that kit for air suspension? I've only installed a kit for springs so can only comment on that. On-road was no change in comfort that I noticed. I'm sure there was an impact in handling with the higher centre of gravity but I never drove my car hard around corners as it's no sports car.
The main problem I had was that there was no small subframe drop when I bought my kit, so the CV's would creak, click and moan when steering at full lock or when the suspension was extended. The axles went from being level before the lift, to about 6 degrees after the lift when resting on flat ground. This means the CV's are wearing slowly every single revolution they make. I place reliability above all else, and I was too worried that my CV's might give way somewhere remote so I took the kit off. Very bummed as I loved the lift.
I'll give the 2.5" kit a crack one day, with the 1" subframe drop just to get the axles level. With some 32" wheels will still get some decent clearance.
