      The H&R sway bars are much stiffer than the OEM ones and put additional stresses on the end links that they were not designed to handle.
      The ECS links have pretty bad reviews and seem to be failure...

      How much would we be looking at if we could get the group buy together? I know you said to PM, but that will be everyones first question so you might as well spill the beans :)

      How flush would...

      B14's are popular with Porsche owners, and I have ridden in many cars with the suspension. It's a very nice suspension which will give a good compromise between ride quality and performance, but it...

      I think you will find either the B12 or the B14 setup will be significantly stiffer than the OEM springs and dampers.
      At 9 years old the shocks are probably due for replacement anyways, so you might...

      If the springs are seated correctly I would want to double check the part numbers for the springs first.
      Is there a PN on the springs you removed so you can make sure the dealer sold you the right...

      I would recommend the Bilstein PSS (B14) system. It gives you a matched set of shocks/springs and is tuned for your vehicle. You get threaded adjustments for height, but don't have the rebound...

      I don't think I have ever seen your particular bracket, but I get what this job entails.
      The OEM bracket is probably 2 pieces, but spot welded together to keep the bushing captured when not bolted...

      Please give us a little more insight into what you want to do with this car.
      Are you going to autocross? Big tracks? Street racing (please don't!)? Drag Racing?
      Are you going to be removing a...

      It could be that there is a certain frequency of excitation that your car just doesn't like, and you happen to have found it with that certain walkway that you describe. It could also be a...

      If you want to get an idea of where your toe is, you can do the following.
      Park the car on a flat spot with the steering wheel and tires straight.
      Get some straight 2x4’s or something similar.
      Put...

      If your R is still under warranty I would definitely bring it in to have it checked out.

      The electric steering racks are very sensitive to having clean ground connections. I would check your...

      Toe in is when the tires are pointed towards the center of the car. Think of someone who is pigeon toed. Toe Out is when the tires face away from the car. Think of someone who is duckfooted.

      There are so many different types of steel and aluminum used in automotive manufacturing that it can be quite difficult to determine what the "best" material will be for each application. Terms like...

      It depends on the quality of the repair.
      I cracked a Bathurst wheel. I prepped the crack myself and the welder at my shop (very good welder!) performed the weld.
      50k miles later no issues. The...

      I am looking for the same thing.
      Have you looked at Motegi MR131 tracklights?

      What width are you looking for? I have found very very few options wider than a 17x8

      squelchy451,

      I am thinking this has a bit to do with tires and alignment settings as well, although steering rack precision also is a factor.
      From the factory a lot of cars come with a decent...

      Love Baja... but have never lifted a VW. I used to have a pre-runner Cherokee that we would thrash out in Ocotillo and Borrego, but it didn't have enough power to be fun in Glamis :)

      IceCruncher,

      I think you went way off topic here :) The OP specifically asked about how to tell the difference between overdamped or underdamped suspension.
      Body roll, understeer and suspension...

      OP,

      How big of a bump do you have to hit to make the suspension "crash"?
      I would suspect a bad bushing (like maybe the upper shock mounts?) somewhere. While springs certainly can fatigue and...
