      We have had a lot of questions about the driver gear springs and what part number fits what application. Here is a list so we can try to make it as easy as possible.


      2 door 2.5 auto and manual, TDI manual5K3-071-677-A
      2 door TDI auto5K3-071-677-B
      4 door 2.5 auto and manual, TDI manual5K4-071-677-A
      4 door TDI auto5K4-071-677-B

      These are items commonly replaced when replacing your suspension



      N-106-107-02--- quantity required 2--- Bolt(low rear shocks to control arm)
      WHT-002-795--- quantity required 2--- Outer axle bolt
      N-909-548-02--- quantity required 2--- Pinch bolt(holding strut in knuckle)
      N-910-216-01--- quantity required 2--- Nut (for upper strut mount)

      I was checking your site and 1K0-412-331-C doesn't return any parts.

      Can you double check the number or your site and see if something is up?

      Also, about the kit-- is anything else needed with the springs? Like suspension limiters or bumpstops or anything like that?

      Will there be new alignment specs with this kit or will it align to factory specs? Can I expect to have tracking issues or any problems or will it drive straight?

      I'm pricing things out and considering options.

      There is not limiters required with this kit. An alignment is always required after taking apart your suspension, but there will be no issues with making the vehicle align within spec. Part number corrected 1K0-412-331-B

      Paul, my local dealer told me that the DG springs are not appropriate for a GTI "because they won't lower it any". Photos of MkVI GTI's I've seen with them installed clearly demonstrate that it will sit at least 0.5" lower if not more once settled with the DG springs. I like the idea of running a spring that (likely) won't make VW freak out that I've modified the car with non-OEM parts, and I like the idea of dropping it about that much to remove just a bit of fender gap.

      Thoughts/input?

      Got mine in and they are great. Final drop on my TDI is about 1.2 all around, car sits almost level, just a hair higher in the back.

      Anyone have a before and after on a 4dr GTi (preferably a DSG)? Thoughts on ride quality? I want to go a tad lower without making the ride any more firm.

      Some hardware is considered one time use items, so hardware needs would be based on what was dis assembled to install. You should not need strut bearings.

      Paul @ Keffer Volkswagen,

      Re: DCC + VW DG Sport Springs

      1. Are the VW Driver Gear Sport Springs compatible with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) suspension on the MK6 Golf GTI?

      2. My GTI with DCC has 30,000km (20,000 miles) - Is it prudent to install the VW DG springs with this mileage re: life of DCC dampers & suitability?

      3. Does Volkswagen offer any other Driver Gear Accessories Sport aftermarket type DCC compatible damper over & above the OE DCC standard Sachs damper I.e. VW branded Koni or Bilstein equivalent by DG?

      Cheers.
      WJ
