So still early days. Just hit 24hrs old. What I can say is that the setup I picked rides quite well. Certainly no worse than stock r-line "sport" suspension. I'm still dialing in the dampening and ride height to be honest. There is a lot of camber in the rear at this height so I haven't settled on a height yet. But even at the height its at, I have over an inch in the coils left for lowering. If anything I'd go higher by 10mm but thats just my preference. The body control is where the biggest gains have been. It corners flat now. Very impressive for a 4900+lb vehicle. Also the dive and squat under braking and acceleration are all but gone. I will give more of an update in a bit. Have a trip coming up so we'll see how it behaves. I will have to dial out the rear camber though and no I haven't done an alignment yet. Still tracks true so toe hasn't really changed. If anyone has questions either post them here or DM me.Nice! How does it ride
I believe they were roughly $1800. But you can go cheaper. My specific setup had some extras like dual springs etc. And it will take at minimum a month to get them. It took 19 days to build them to my spec.holly ****, this is what I want!!!
if you don't mind, how much were they? I am in Canada too (Montreal, QC)
thanks a lot. So Sport valving, sport low ride height & dual springs (front and back?).I believe they were roughly $1800. But you can go cheaper. My specific setup had some extras like dual springs etc. And it will take at minimum a month to get them. It took 19 days to build them to my spec.
Ok so I went back over the email to make sure what I specced. The valving was sport. The ride height was actually extra low, the front springs are 16kg and the rears 12kg. Dual springs front and rear. No upper mounts (pillow ball). Ordered 2 remote knobs in the 327mm length. I would change then to the shortest 227mm length. Mine are too long and I may change them also I may order a 3rd for the passenger side as it sits under the fuel filter but buyer beware I haven't confirmed it would fit there yet. Its height limited under the filter housing. I may have to get custom and add spacers to the housing.thanks a lot. So Sport valving, sport low ride height & dual springs (front and back?).
Following your thread with GREAT interest, our ride are very similar (TDI, R-line, white) and I am aiming for similar height.
great looking wheels BTW
I had 95mm gap up front and 100mm rear. Now I'm roughly 28-30mm gap fender to wheel top.keep us updated, I am very very interested indeed.
How much lower over stock is it now?
Well, that came out of nowhere. Keep your thread updated!OMG my B12 kit should be here tomorrow or so! I'll get new rear top plate as well. The front don't have bearings, only some kind of spacers that can be re-used.
+- 3in drop. NICE. I measured a 4.25in wheel to fender gap on mine. unfortunately I'll stick to OEMish look with my setup.I had 95mm gap up front and 100mm rear. Now I'm roughly 28-30mm gap fender to wheel top.
