      yes, but not sure if the suspension makes any difference since the gti and golf use different shocks

      Koni STR.T shocks and struts are the same part number for both, so maybe going to aftermarket strut changes a couple things. O well just thought I'd throw that out there if any golf owners had experience with gti springs...

      anyway, I'll get my golf on here when I get my cupkit all together. I would love to see some more SS or race springs with staggerd wheels on springs.

      No offense but these seem like DG springs with a cooler name. Maybe I just haven't read enough about them. Otherwise

      No offense taken, I can't compare to the DG springs as I don't have a set. Several people have said that these look a little lower in the rear than the DG springs, but according to VWR, the spring rates are different than DG. It doesn't really matter as these are the springs I have and I am happy with them. I am also sure that I would probably be happy with DG springs as well.

      Do you mean h&r Super Sports? If so, how do you like the ride with the KONI Orange STR.T shocks? I was leaning toward yellow shocks but have been hearing more and more about the STR.t that they ride very nice and still carry lifetime warranty.

      I was wondering how they ride compared to stock shocks, when paired with the super sport springs.

      looks great, thanks!

      thanks for info!....I have spoke to a couple others now with SUperSports and Koni Strt shock/combo and they both say they ride awesome. Apparently not quite as stiff as the koni yellows. I think for the typical driver they are perfect. I guess thats why they call them "street"

      can you clarify which setup you went with? cupkit or sportlines/STR.T

      thanks!

      ummmm... Yes? i didn't know sportlines/str.t didn't mean cupkit


      BrokenTT; i love the omanyts. im considering those for my golf as well

      So after putting about 1,000 miles on my new suspension, needless to say, it was exactly what i wanted. The car is a bit stiffer than stock, and hardly bouncey, which im glad i purchased the Konis for becasue putting the GTI sportlines (different part number than the golf's) on the golf shocks probably would have been uncomfortable for my 80+ mile commute to work. I have about a 2 finger gap with the 15" wheels in, and when i get some bigger wheels, i think they will fill in prefectly. on with some more pics.

      Hi,

      I'm just trying to figure out if I'm going to rub or not. I'm about to install an H&R Touring Cup Kit and I'm running 18x8 et40 wheels with 225/40 tires. Just trying to figure out if i'm gonna need a fender roll or not and if anyone else is running a similar setup.

      Hmm.. Ok. So the screw mod is a definite and i guess rolling the fenders probably wouldn't be a bad idea either. Thanks for the insight!!!

      All of these pictures of the H&R super sport springs are making my decision between coil overs and springs a hard one.

      For those of you with the super sports: is there more gap in the front than in the rear?

      This thread made my decision about H&R Super Sport springs an easy one. I just got them installed last week

      Before






      After ( less than a week after install so they probably need to settle a little bit more )

      Thanks! They are just a BBS LM replica. I am not sure what brand, but they look pretty close to the BBS wheel.

      Wow! Do you rub? Did you have to roll fenders? I have 10mm spacers on all four and am thinking of doing super sports.

      On that setup the rears rubbed with no roll. I rolled the fenders and removed the screw up front and it never rubbed again.

      I was thinking about getting coil overs to give my new car a nicer look until I saw what the h&r sport springs do on stock shocks. Thanks for the eye candy and this post
