      BTW, when dealing with aftermarket brake pads, the rear brake pads are the same for all VW's with rear disc from '85 up through early '05 ('06 on GTI's) MkII, MkIII, and MkIV.

      No, the pads are not the same. The rear pads are actually smaller.. I don't know where you're buying your parts from, but anytime I've bought pads the rear were cheaper. :screwy::banghead::banghead:

      Shock absorber valving also has a lot to do with ride comfort, even with high spring rates. My MkII GTI has 400lb front springs, and 280lb rear, but the ride isn't all that bad with the Bilstein...

      Perhaps one or more of the hoses has become obstructed? The prop valves simply hold residual pressure in the line... A friend of mine had a problem on a '65 Beetle where one of the hoses was blocked...

      It's all relative.. Does one really need brakes like that? Perhaps not. But then again, better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them. This theory applies for so many...

      When it comes to electrical connectors inside the car, I like to use a little better connector than what you can get at most auto parts stores.. What I have used is actually the same thing I used to...

      From what I recall, yes, the MMP brackets are about the only ones I know of for putting 11" brakes on an A1 chassis car. Also, as far as I know, the knuckle is the same..

      Just to clarify, when I say the pad is thicker, I mean the pad material itself. The dimensions of the pads are the exact same, with the exception of the pad thickness. I believe VW did this to...

      Ok, I hope this doesn't get too confusing, but, both cars use the Girling 54 caliper. The difference is the Corrado G60 caliper has a wider opening for the pads, as the pads are thicker. To go to an...

      It's usually the second weekend, though this year the 1st of the month is on a Sunday, so we shall see... I try to go every year as it is usually quite close to my birthday ;)

      Probably need a new pedal cluster - they like to break where the little tube piece is spot welded to the base.

      Another thing to check if you've got gas in the oil is the fuel pressure regulator on the side of the fuel rail. When they go bad, the diaphragm ruptures, spewing fuel into the intake through the...

      Well, to be completely honest, I wasn't worried about you :P

      I just haven't seen the OP in here, so I hope it's just because he's busy reading through his recently purchased Bentley manual.

      Ok, I may have come off a bit harsh, so, just to clarify: My first response is really just the first step in a flow chart. If you buy the Bentley, which I HIGHLY recommend, sit down and take some...
