      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.

      I just went back and rechecked because you were interested, after settling the Front and Rear dropped exactly 1 1/8" -- with the rear being 1/2" higher.

      (Front 25 3/8" Rear 25 7/8")

      Thanks for clarifying. That's what I want. I'm a manual tho.. But I doubt it changes too much...

      It's been over 300 miles. My alignment is Friday although I don't feel it needs one (probably does). Pics to follow

      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

      Ok-- finally have the pictures uploaded. They are only cell phone pics, but I think they will get the job done.

      That's odd, I just measured my stock 2010 Golf TDI 4dr 6 speed manual:
      25 3/4" rear and 26" front .......
      So I'm lower in the back (stock suspension) and 5/8" higher in the front. I wonder if the DG springs will help me ....

      Paul, I am running Interlagos reps from USARim that are 18x8 et 35 with 225/40/18 DWS on my 2011 2 door TDI 6M..I know the offset only pushes the wheel out about 6 mm farther than the OEM Interlagos, but I am a still concerned about rubbing if I throw on the DG springs, what are your thoughts?
      Thanks in advance

      Seems pretty unlikely as these springs are not super agressive. Impossible for me to say no it will never happen as I havent had that setup. Although I have not heard any rubbing issues from anyone with the DG springs.

      Seems odd. I know the springs are different from DSG to Manual, but I didn't think the actual heights would be different. Or maybe a 2Dr vs 4Dr thing?

      I just ordered these. Found out about them through Vortex, but didn't realize there was a Vortex discount. Am I too late for that?

      Also, my Golf only has 125 miles on it. I know I don't need strut bearings or bushings, but do I need all the other bolts? This is practically brand new.
      Also, why would I remove the axle bolt? I see in a lot of discussions about these DG springs everyone says "IF" you remove the axle bolt.

      Thanks in advance!

      I think if you have auto there's no need to remove the axle bolt. In any case you should be fine even if you don't replace it.
