      Not here to stir up ****, but as an ex owner of a couple cars on ST's they do not ride like stock. No coil rides like "stock". IMO the ST's on the mkvi are too soft making the rub more and bouncier than others (ie B&G and H&R). They are a great budget coil but are NOT a coil setup for performance OR going really low. No way you can get 23ftg on the front with ST's unless your removing stuff and cutting. Im at 23 FTG right now on B&G's and my ST's werent anywhere NEAR that.

      Actually speaking of which the closest suspension I have driven on to "stock" was actually bags haha. Thus why I ordered them. I will have had three suspensions on my MKVI in less than a year. Had two different coils on my MKV (VMAXX and Ksport both of which sucked). Had FK's on my MKIV (liked those other than they clunked). And had ST's on my MKII (liked those on there, much better ride than the MKVI on ST's).

      My bags feel just like stock. Unless aired all the way up it feels like terrible coils. Even with y sway disconnected it still feels JUST like stock.

      that isn't true...patrick went 11.73 when he was stage 3(dsg car) and then 11.53 with 3+

      Holy hell did this thread go to ****
      I would have to agree that the ST's ride very well. I guess I only have cars on springs and a bunch of different suspensions on mk4's to compare them to, but they are the best thing I have rode on. Have never been in a car on bags...after thinking about it I heard about how many people blew lines driving at the "tail of the dragon" last week and it changed my mind. Also every person on them is always fixing leaks. **** that, I just want to drive.

      Car looks pretty good either way
