      Anyone with a lifted MK2 post a pic!

      Please post suspension setup, tire size etc.


      This is not intended to be a DIY thread, but more of an "alternative" stance thread.
      However, if you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer them.


      I'll start with my winter beater:

      185-70-14 Toyo's (temporary)
      Will be running 185-75-14 Firestone Winterforce

      MK3 4cyl front suspension (direct swap)
      B3 Passat wagon rear suspension (with MK2/MK3 upper strut mount)

      ^ I spy wheel gap, that's good enough for me Oh, and very clean car BTW

      The Golf Country was something I found out about only after seeing Frankencar's TDi Golf, which was what made me want to build one of my own. If I were to do it over I would start with a Diesel 4dr Golf, and build it to be a clone of the County. syncro and body lift included

      I've thought about going with the 4x4 stance and having someone fabricate the front grill and back spare tire bit for me. It'd be kinda phony i guess but pretty fun too

      Bilstein Group B Roadrace struts front and rear with Shine Motorsports springs all around with the JOM lowering caps up front. Ride is awesome, handles great, isnt killer on the back and my daughter can ride in the back without the flares and fenders rubbing on the rear tires. In fact, I also added some 3mm spacers out back as well and there is still no rubbing. AND I STILL HAVE MY 2 FINGER GAP!! Which, as you may not be able to tell - I like. I like the clearance and I can really drive the hell out of the car. Stays flat and planted on the corners.

      i machined spacers for between the K member and the body, the front crossmember and the body, MK3 VR6 springs and shocks, custom machined spacers on top of the front struts, square street sign post in the rear in the swing arm to make the rear shocks adjustable.

      ^ Thanks for the info man, not sure if I'm willing to go that far, but it's good to know it's been done.

      Some new pictures from this weekend, took my car down an access road up at my cottage. I don't think too many cars would have made it through



      This hill was where I thought I would get stuck, after I cleared it I stopped taking pictures, I was so pumped I just wanted to clear the rest of the trail.



      I'm going back with a friend and a video camera
