      Seems like something you can fabricate yourself at a friends shop.

      As low as I will go around here. (Some military bases have HUGE speed bumps) Not to mention the Syncro rear subframe sits MUCH lower than a normal Golf.



      Destroyed my first oil pan back in November (and broke all the engine mounts in the process...)

      1" spacers between the mounts and the brackets. only works on cable shift (o2a, o2j) cars.

      the unibody is notched to clear the tie rods, and the axles.



      sub 20"

      old mk2 5 years ago no real issues at this height patech coilovers


      4 years ago 13x8 steels. h and r ultra lows (hooks were bent flat. self notched axels and tie rods both sides .. never busted a pan tho. just some leaky drainplugs and scraped holes thru a few pans. Perfect example of y u dont need a skidplate on a 8v.. only stops you from going low



      new mk2.. 16v lip folded under car. couldnt find a 8v lip. 15x6 and 7 165/45's the small ass tires put this car about the height of my old gli on 13's. subframe would drag on any roads that were not flat. H and r ultra lows




      and current on staggard et 14x8 steels. ultra lows all the way down as with the dails. 195/45/t1r's very drivable at this height. no issues on undercarrage with a little care. (this pic was before the settled) but still id like to take the fronts down 3/4 of a inch but id have to pull my helpers and would be close the the phone dial height

      Old Coupe on VMAXX coils wound almost all the way down. Rode like crap but I still miss that car. Front mud flaps were always scraping on the gound.

      Current Carat, not nearly as low as the coupe, Koni coils with about an inch of thread in the front and rear.
