      First off a big thanks to DubCreations for getting this done

      Im sure most ple know u can find these plates for mk3's but i couldnt find any for my passat. If u dont know this already, the style plate is different for a mk3 then it is for a b4.
      This was the most annoying thing to me because I couldnt set the rear height that i wanted otherwise i would rub. Driving with ple in the back seats was just as annoying because the rubbing was unbearable.

      The plates bolts up just as the mason tech products would to center the rear wheel when the suspension is lowered. It took a lot of time/ test fitting and cutting but the end result was worth it.

      If anyone is interested or has questions feel free to ask and ill post pics when my rims are mounted.

      Here are pics of the plates and when installed:

      great idea. are these necessary with a mild 1.5 to 1.75" drop on lowering springs? or this is rather oriented for some serious lowering via coil overs?

      pictures please?
      also any group buy to lower the costs?...

      Dont think a 1.5" drop would need this but would depend on the spec rim/tire ur running.
      IF there's enough interest sure

      I'm not very handy, but I can jack up, bolt and unbolt. If these go into production I'm in.
