    Thread: H&R Sport Spring Question

    1. 03-14-2012 10:47 PM #1
      The specs say 1.22 inch drop on a MK VI GTI. When I climb into the car it drops almost an inch. When I load my family into the car am I gonna run into rubbing issues especially in tight turns over say a speed bump? This wont be the 1st car I dropped but it will be the 1st car I just put springs on. All others I've used coiovers and I even went lower. I'm getting a little older and don't want to bounce down the road but I'm also tired of getting nose bleeds from being in the clouds. BTW, I plan to stick with my stock 18's with the current stock offset. Even later if I change wheels I will keep offsets the same. Somebody please tell me I wont be screwing up my car and why.

      Thanks

      Wow! 75 views and not 1 comment? Not even some @$$hole saying "Use the search!" ??? I left the Vortex for a couple years while I tried on other vehicles. Once I decided that only a VW fit me well, I decided to come back to what was once the most helpful bunch of people I've ever communicated with. This place sure has changed.

      just kidding.

      i lowered mine 2", and still have stock shocks (temporary!).

      i've never rubbed, even with a full set of wheels in my back seat/trunk and my gf in the front. now i know they don't weigh as much as an entire family but i can't see you rubbing if i'm not.

      Are you running stock shocks on it?

      How much do you weigh?

      That could explain the distance that the car drops when you get in.
