    Thread: RAISING a Sportwagen?

    1. 01-18-2012 01:16 AM #1
      Anyone here, like me, would like to have variable ride height, and RAISE my ground clearance when needed?

      Anyone have any idea on how I can go about doing it? Everyone here seems in a race to zero clearance.. and I'm worrying about getting down rutted back roads..

      My research into air kits all seem to be lowering.. Any help or ideas is appreciated!

      Thanks in advance...

      From personal experience I can say that spring from MKV Jetta GLI, will raise your car about 3/4-1" higher than stock. Installed it on our 2010 JSW TDI.
      It was not an intended outcome, so they came out pretty quick.

      cant air ride also raise you car too. i know alot of people with air and then they have the bag fully filled their car have alot of clearance

      so you could drive with normal height and then raise the car up when needed just my thought
