      I've done this on the MK4 2WD platform. You might want to double check your numbers instead of just guessing. The lighter 2WD platform uses a 400# spring in front and ~295# spring in the rear. ...

      The TT and the Golf/Jetta do not share the same rear end. The FWD TT shared the same rear for a year or so, I do not recall. However it is not the same length shock or spring.

      On the front the...

      To fit the TT swaybar you would need the appropriate swaybar, mounting brackets, bushings and bolts. The pertinent pieces are struts which have an endlink mounting bracket and the drop links which...

      IMO, yes. Having played with a BFB and a BRB setup, the BFB setup was much quicker and easier to handle. It also prevented the floppy front end feel. When experimenting with the BRB setup I had to...

      You're not going to find off the shelf arms. The car is a McPherson strut design, there are no upper arms.

      Were the springs in fact defectiv? Or do they just sit that low?

      Glad to hear the rear droops, was thinking that would be the case given that a 7" spring was used. There are plenty of 6" springs available. Wish there was more room in the front to fit a 7" spring...

      Seat time really makes the biggest difference. Don't treat body roll as a negative, work with it and feel it, it will communicate what the car and the tires are doing and really teach you how to...

      Thanks for sharing. Those springs are custom. Eibach does not make 2.5" springs in that length. Its not that difficult to have custom springs made in shorter lengths, just requires up front costs....

      Great, thanks for sharing! Interesting that they are using a custom short spring in the front. Given the current height, do you know approximately how many inches you could spin up, or down the...

      They don't necessarily need to be a re-badge. Eibach produces custom springs made to your specification for a fair price. Given all the details the ED lists, and information given by manufacturers,...

      Do you happen to know what the spring lengths are front and rear?

      Its not much of an assumption, not only do their marketing materials mention increased spring rates, but their posts regarding methodology directly state that they use a higher spring rate. They...

      Thanks for re-sharing, somehow I missed that. Is the filter a paper style that just needs to be vacuumed out, or is it a wash and re-oil type unit?

      Would be cool to see what it looks like inside the box too. What are the dimensions on the cone filter? Does it have a built in air ram?

      Likely way off. Eibach needs to keep the car streetable and safe. MSS is sold to a different market where more rotation is necessary.

      Although Eibach doesn't publish their numbers, if you push...

      There was one other individual that ran this setup. It was NOT ideal. They picked up a pair of ADs for a Subaru WRX and forced them to fit. The valving was off and the measurements weren't exactly...

      We may never know since both do not publish rates. Sometimes with enough persistence you can get Eibach to divulge the rates. However, just as most other off the shelf brands, the natural frequency...

      We're over complicating what is really a simple, although more expensive option available to the market. A few things to keep in mind.
