I just purchased my second Passat. This one is a 2004 GLX with all the bells and whistles (except for 4 motion). The mounts on the struts are rusting out and the ride is getting harsh. I am looking for a soft, comfortable ride with about .5" of drop if at all (i live in upstate new york, i killed my VR6 on a pot hole ).

I was thinking the 1BE kit from ECSTuning with stock springs. The complete control arm kit would go in at the same time (just hit 100,000 miles). 19" B7 RS4 rims are further down the to do list.
Oh, and no I am not slamming it. "Moar low" isn't helpful. I need this to last.
