      Droollll!!!! I took a sneak peak in your flickr account. I want it! Can you post exact model/part no.? Thanks!

    15. 10-20-2011 01:37 PM #115
      WOW!! Looks outstanding!!

      A few questions:
      1) What exact part number did you use, and what was the fitment for (B6 3.6 I am assuming)
      2) How long did the rear take?
      3) How long did the front take?
      4) Did you have to pull the axles in the front to swap?
      5) Does the entire coilover assemply drop right in?


      So jealous right now!!

      Any idea if the TDI has the exact same suspension as the VR6?

      Looks sweet! How is the ride quality compared to stock? I want to lower mine but I kinda like the "being on a boat" suspension

      Yes its all the same just that the TDI will have a different spring rate because the VR6 engine is heavy.

      No idea yet.... haven’t had a chance to drive it yet... Kind of busy at work and the shop is still working on it. Alignment and height adjustments are in the works...
