If your going for 1.5 I'd go with lowering springs, I owned a 2005.5 Jetta before I had my GTI and I was satisfied with the drop that I got from just springs. If you want to go really low and you have the money I'd then suggest buying coils.
so i am stupid, i dont have trouble admitting it lol and have a hard time navigating thru vwvortexs forum still. so i have a mk5 jetta, and i just want to lower it like 1.5, i know nothing about this topic, but will learn, do i have to buy coil overs? or can i just buy lowering springs? any help and suggestions would be appreciated.
For a 1.5" drop lowering springs are all you'll need. The bug will hit you and you'll want to go lower though. So I'd suggest getting a quality set of coilovers right from the start
