    Thread: MK1 Rabbit Suspension and Wheel Spec Help!

    1. 04-24-2012 11:05 PM #1
      Hey guys, i finally got everything under the hood taken care of and got my rabbit running. I have some seats being reupholstered and have been working on the interior but it is time to start stancing I live in las vegas so i can afford to go prettty low with this car so i am going to do just that. I am planning on getting some 15x8 rims for the front and 15x8.5 or 9 in the back but i need someone to point me in the right direction for a suspension set-up that will set my rabbit almost right on my wheels. This is how my rabbit sits now...

      I believe Jersey is sitting on H&R Ultralow for coils and 165/45/15 tires in that photo. That car is pretty low for the streets of Vegas.

      You misspelled dancing

      I, too, think the green car you posted (Jersey) is on Ultra Lows. They also have Ultra Ultra Lows, but from what I've read either will get you all the way down.

      165/45 is my favorite tire size Just make sure you have the correct offset when deciding on your wheels.
