EDIT: I wasn't clear in the title. I'm wondering about '11 GTI springs on an '09 Rabbit
There's a local guy selling some springs off his 2011 GTI for a good price. They're not driver gear springs, just the stock GTI ones.
My understanding is that they'll fit my 09 Rabbit, true? If so how much of drop will I see between stock '11 springs and stock '09 rabbit springs?
Please spare me the "save for coilovers" speech. I'm going with springs for sure. I just want to see if its even worth considering these.

When I first read the title I thought he was comparing an '11 GTi to an '09 GTi,
which I agree, are the same.
Are the GTi and Rabbit the same stock ride height stock too?
I would not be surprised if they are, the stock GTi seems plenty high to me.
BTW 2006 GTi on stock 2009 GTi springs, 2k miles of settling,
