hey everyone whats going on ?? i am new to the VW scene and have been researching alot lately however there are so many mixed reviews about coil-overs ?? obviously i have a MK4 R32 at first i was debating Air suspenion but think i will have problems in the long run ... all my buddies are saying coil-overs but i dont know what to choose ?? the reason why i am having this problem is because i want to do it right and not jump at the first company i see and make a mistake ... so i come upon the forums and ask for help ... pictures comments on installations anything ??? Thank you ... my budget is no more then $1500 thats the most ... then i need rims and tires ooo boy STRESSED OUT !!!! lol
None, that'll save you $1,500 at least and the car will handle excellent...........

Im going track for next year, so this winter I'm picking up a set of PSS9s for my R and OZ ultraleggeras and doing a rear seat delete when i hit track
H&R Street Performance Coilovers. These go decently low, but retain comfort for daily driving and are progressive springs which provide minimal body roll during spirited driving. I took these to the tail of the dragon R32 meet and frankly, reduced body roll but wasnt as stiff rebound/compression wise as my H&R Rss Clubsports.
H&R Clubsports feature a helper spring infront, tougher, heavier spring rating and minimal body roll, minimal front dip when u slam the brakes, a lot more stiff for a track use and is daily drivable but not nearly as comfortable as street coilovers.
I just sold my Street Performance setup to go back to the RSS i had now that im not daily driving the R32. I have had H&R products on my car for over 50k miles collectively between the RSS ( 34k) and the reaming 16k on the streets.
I Love H&R products and the only other coilover i think id consider would be the KW V2/V3
MOAR PICS haha
