      Right. That all checks out the way it's supposed to. Front and rear. Thought that was all pretty clear.

      I'll second that. Have this on mine. 26mm, on the stiffer setting. Great addition. Their proprietary bushings are key. Had H&R bars on the Y2K GTI for 9 years and on the MkIV R32 for 8... never so...

      Here’s another approach, for the more hard-core tinkerers among us. Had this arrangement on an earlier VW. It approximates those bigger center caps that unscrew or those with a slot that allows you...

      These guys manufacture two-piece bolts (and locks!) in various lengths. Cone and ball.

      They were super nice with me (twice) about selling me locks in two different lengths but with the same key,...

      Hmm.

      Well, this is why I've gone on the way I have, trying to be all sorts of descriptive. Because -- if I'm understanding things correctly, and it sounds like I am -- what I've got going on...

      aha

      Thanks, Chaos. You've mentioned some of the very things I've thought of, in fact.

      Certain frequency of excitation, yep. Maybe: just a fluke of the underlying dynamics of a 4Motion Tiguan...

      Thanks for weighing in, all.

      I phrased my original post the way I did because sometimes things are more easily gotten to if you don't ask directly. Like make it more open-ended I suppose. But:...

      Under or Over?

      Can someone explain to me what an underdamped suspension feels like? As in, if I'm understanding things correctly, shocks/struts are essentially too soft for their springs. (Or is it that the springs...

      You might have a clearance problem up front with the underside of the spring perch. I have 245/50 on 18x8.5" wheels (et 45 w/5mm spacers so et 40) and it's awfully close right there. But it's not...

      Ouch. That certainly blows. I guess anyone in your situation is now simply supposed to buy a whole new seat/s. Figures.

      Stinky

      So it's that time of year: first few uses of the A/C.

      But of course those are the smelly ones, since the compressor et al. have not gotten much use since fall. I'm one who makes it a point to run...
