      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!
      Just did this install this weekend. First time doing suspension with removing the whole assy via removing the axle bolt.. Job took 2 hours start to finish! I will never go back to the other method of spreading the strut clamp and fighting to get the strut out.

      So, can I just come in to order this for the same price, and I assume it is all in stock.


      Actually, can someone just pull this stuff for me and I can stop in Saturday to pick up without waiting.

      Thanks.

      I would assume to can since he said okay to the last guys asking that. Probably wouldn't hold your breath on a response from them here. I asked about the discount too, after I bought of course. Still haven't heard anything

      I believe it's already discounted. Discount code was used previously on their old site I think.

      Then these springs are $313. Quite a bit more than I have seen others pay. Think I will pass.

      are you using www.keffervwparts.com ?

      what part number are you trying to enter in?

      Are you sure you're going to the right site? Just checked and they're not $313, make sure you use the link in first post and copy the correct part# and paste in the search box - online price should come out as $235.

      Ordered No idea why I wasn't getting the discount last night. Anyway, waiting on some VMR wheels and rear sway, to install with these springs. Should level out the handling nicely

      Getting ready to order this but read on Mk6 that some people are using the s3-TT bushings as they were improved to help with noise.
      Thoughts? Suggestions?
      Do you have a "kit" part number to get the full install kit vs entering every part number?

      "Do you have a "kit" part number to get the full install kit vs entering every part number? "

      Man up and type those numbers in, like I did

      The bushings sound intriguing. I like a quiet car.

      Im sorry I have not heard of this, so I dont have any insight. Im sorry but there is no kit available. All the items must be added individually.

      Not to sound like a total douche, but if you are looking for a manual on it, I would have to say just bring it to a shop and have it done. Most places should charge between 2-300 for it.

      Again, Im not trying to sound like a jerk, just sayin...

      I installed a full suspension lift kit on my Jeep so, I am pretty confident in my skills as a mechanic. I just wanted to look at a manual before I ordered these to see what it involves. This is my first VW so I am new to this type of car, it sure isn't a Jeep.
