1.5" is three times .5 so a 1.5" drop is quite a bit more than .5
About to have to replace my stock struts/shocks/springs
Right now I just have a neuspeed 28mm RSB as far as suspension.
I've heard people say that .5" drop is ideal. really?
Is the Eibach Sportline + Koni Str.t setup MJM is promoting a good combo?
I've read the Koni oranges can handle a 1.5" lowering spring.. is that extra .3" ok on those shocks?

the best suspension for handling for a DD is..... Shine Racing Real Street Suspension.
most on the MKIV forum do not like the reverse rake Shine gave you.
http://www.kermatdi.com/servlet/the-...ng-Real/Detail --- springs: Custom wound springs, iirc, 225 lb front (iirc 250 for VR6) & 180 lb rear... no preload needed with these springs.
Then they were combined with Bilstein Sports & Shine's rear bar.
Option 2: Stock springs with Bilstein HD or Koni Sport. Start refreshing suspension bushings

Yeah I've read a lot of good things about shine.
Think it's a .5 lift up front and a .5 drop in the back.
kind of tempted by WRD's kit.
and this article makes me want the neuspeed pro kit..warranty..numbers..etc..
For off the shelf handling, the minimal lowering springs from H&R (OE Sport) and Neuspeed (SofSport) are a close second to the SRS kit.
The OE Sports are said to have more of a linear feel, with more precise turn-in, etc. The SofSports supposedly ride a tad better.
Either can be paired with Bilstein HDs (sharper handling, bit more harsh) or Koni Yellows for a really, really nice package.
I've got the OE Sport/Koni combo and have posted detailed impressions in other threads - wish I had gone with it sooner.
