      I'm not sure if this is a serious post or not...

      let me start with this. You own a VW, it was "autobahn ready" from the factory.
      20" wheels will make your car slower, not faster. You can run...

      If you read around online there are various reviews on the Godspeed products ranging from great to terrible. How abusive you are on your suspension will likely make a huge difference. If you aren't...

      H&R Sports are fantastic springs, that what I have used on all of my VW/Audi vehicles. Despite the relatively small drop, they are relatively heavy springs and are well suited for Bilstein Sport...

      What is it that you want to upgrade? Stiffer, softer, more travel?

      It’s hard to go wrong with Bilstein.
      Koni is also very good, but I would steer away from their STR.T cheap line.

      Just wanted to add a bit to this conversation because I am bored at work.

      I don't understand the point of people installing complex adjustable suspension kits on their cars when they don't know...

      Forks? Are you working on a motorcycle?

      Also, what are your performance goals. Shock tuning is different for a drag car vs a street car vs a road course build.

      There are lots of good books on...

      That's the sway bar mount, not the lower control arm mount.

      As Brake Weight mentioned you should be able to use a crescent wrench to get the tab pointing straight out.
      If you can smash the tab in...

      The H&R Sport springs will work okay with the stock shocks/struts for a while.
      I had the same setup on my MK6 TDI and now my A3.
      The Super Sports are too stiff for the factory shocks, the system...

      Was 4motion a Passat option in 2015 in the US?

      If the swaybars were interchangeable I would expect at least 1 company to advertise them as such. It's not like there is a marketing advantage to...

      In the VW world most manufactures are pretty good about keeping the same PN if the parts fit multiple vehicles.
      The MK6 GTI and the B7 Passat are completely different platforms, I would be very...

      If the rear height is adjustable your kit will come with an adjustable hockey puck looking thing in the rear that installs along with the spring.
      To raise the car you extend the hockey puck, if you...

      The springs will be fine. It's pretty normal for them to lose a little bit of paint.
      When your suspension "bottoms out" its not because the springs are over-compressed, its usually the struts or...

      Just to clarify: Is the car pulling to the right, or is the steering wheel just not straight?

      In other words:
      If you take your hands off the wheel when you are driving straight do you change...

      Unless you have dynamic suspension there is always going to be a trade-off between firmness and comfort.

      I can tell you that the Bilstein B-12 Pro-Kit is an excellent system and is one of the most...

      I would NOT recommend the STR.T shocks from Koni, which are their "budget shocks".

      I ran them on my MK5 Jetta TDI and they are/were absolutely awful. The 10 year old OEM shocks with 100,000 miles...

      Did you check with Bilstein USA in Poway? I thought they still supported maintenance of the PSS9's.

      You can think of a shock absorber as a hydraulic cylinder with a hole in the main piston, since that is essentially what it is.

      During the compression stroke the cylinder shaft enters the oil...

      Thy_Harrowing,

      That's great! I didn't think of removing the dog-bone :facepalm: That probably would have done the trick on my MK6 Jetta with much less hassle.

      OP, I hope you got the bolts out...

      I have run into this as well. The bolt holding the front of the control arm is really long and hits stuff on the way out.

      Dropping the subframe is probably the easiest thing you can do. It's...

      I think your intuition is correct.
      H&R Sports or Eibach springs with Koni yellows are proven combos that works well together. As I am sure you already know, either of those will be significantly...
