Audi modified the suspension parts and settings along with the adding the spoiler and ASR (later ESP) after early TT crashes early in its release, the 1999 Euro models. Originals had problems swapping ends when drivers would lift at high speed, the ducktail eliminates the lift created by the downward curve of the hatchlid. Lifting causes the rear end to float, somewhat because of weight distribution, mostly because of bad aerodynamics, and occurs when the engine is no longer propelling the car under throttle. The steering/suspension was changed because it was "sensitive," though I personally think that issue was overblown, as the TT lost road feel as a result. This may also be the reason rear camber cannot be properly adjusted on the rear OEM control arms.
Audi TT mk1 FAQ ███ TT is officially on the ground but awaiting a new master cylinder setup, the Forester needs a little love but dailys well...
The FAQ states that the TT and MKIV Golf share the same chassis. I thought that was the case, but today I was told by KermaTDI that the front struts are different for the TT than the Golf.
Are they the same? Does it matter if it is a FWD or AWD?

I miss my GTI....
Noob here but have been posting since 2001 on other TT boards.
1. Clarifiaction - 2001 (and thereafter) baseball interior was only offered on roadsters.
2. Clarification - 2001 (and thereafter) 180 roadster was FWD only.
3. Error - 2002 was the last year for the 180 manual 5-speed, not 2003 as implied in the FAQ. I am 100% certain of this and can be found in several sources.
Both of my Mk I roadsters were 180s.
