      Has anyone seen these or heard of this company? It looks like they make a coilover kit for the Atlas...

      Never heard of them but lately looking for a way to ground the Atlas. I won't be doing any offroading so don't care about height. Purpose of the car is completely different in my case.
      So if anyone knows proper setup for lowering it - please let me know

      Been in contact with Scale and their


      Been in contact with Scale and at this time they are the ONLY set-up specified for the ATLAS...should lower the Atlas 3+ inches and the whole setup looks quite professional. Then comes the shaky parts...not in the USA, 3-5 week delivery as each set is made as its ordered and the $1300 is paid. The pictures and WEBSITE all look very good, lets see if they can do a group deal for us through the VWVortex site, I'm in! At least it gives you the option to leave it up in the air or closer to the ground and then switch if you want, very versatile.

      Me either. This is my family vehicle, so I won't be dropping this one...just so used to knocking a few inches off my ride heights, I started searching for options.

      Kit looks really nice and professionally made. I noticed the wait time and that they weren't in the US, but I didn't find anything from usual suspects of spring companies.

      I'd assume so, I was skeptical because there were no reviews. The coilovers would be perfect on my Tourmaline blue, but lucky for my wife, we need a new fence. LOL

      Never heard of them. Would not trust the safety and handling to an unknown

      Lots of people use scale suspension on their mk6/7 cars. I spoke with h&r and they are developing springs for the atlas

      This guy is over in Europe and has the scale coilovers installed

      That looks SICK!! I don't know if I'd slam mine like that, but 2-3 inches would be sufficient for me.

      That is what I am looking for The wheels must be 22" or even 24", surely not 20" or smaller but the tires look more sedan than SUV like...make mine 45

      Did all of you not see my thread ?? Scale Suspension Coilovers on Asanti 22's.....

      Lots of info there. The drop looks sweet for the summer, but it is an issue for those of you with harsh winters. I want to raise the truck back up, but the shorter springs do not have enough height on them to bring you back to stock height. Even the Scale coilover setup is too low for my taste. I wanted to have at least 2-3 leveled fingers between the tire and wheel well edge, but the threaded adapter (hi-low) does not have enough thread on it to get me to that height. So Scale is custom making ones a little higher (+1"). That will take care of summer.

      For winter, have no clue what I am going to do. I may leave the truck dropped, or I might chat with Scale and see if they can make me some slightly taller springs that I can shove in there, to get it up higher.

      Notice that my springs are powder coated, not for the looks, but to protect them from corrosion. I am in Quebec, and our roads are de-iced with salt still. Once the salted snow and slush packs into the wheel well, it will eat away at the springs. I had 2 Eibachs snap on me while driving, very big bang and almost lost control of my previous truck. The next day I had the Eibachs taken off. I would not put Eibachs or H&R springs on any vehicle, even if you have them to me for free with install. Just does not work in harsh winters (not here anyways).

      Scale has assured me that once powder coated, those springs will last for years. We'll see about that. Was also considering to put some shock covers over the whole setup to protect the threads from grime and dirt and corrosion, but the alignment place told me that would just speed up the corrosion process as the covers would keep things humid underneath....

      From the SCALE sales rep via email:
      "We are specialized in custom suspension so we do offer various suspension setup from the street version (innovative series) to the full rally 55mm inverted 3 way suspension ( for rallycross or professional rally use) with many other configuration between these.
      We have done many lift setup mostly for Subaru with a custom long travel innovative series and haven't heard of any issues after years of use. Our products are designed to withstand excessive use at different level depending the version but our innovative series can handle street, track , off road and even used for some amateur rally drivers. So it will be good enough for your needs.

      "If your needs are to have a set that lift from 0 to approximately 3 inches and don,t want to lower the car more than the stock height, yes we can use different shock and spring length to give you the range you are looking for, it's not a problem. Maybe we need a minimum manufacturing time to calculate the right length needed and assemble the shock with the right valving for the car but few days should be good. We don't think it will need some trying and changes but yes if something need to be changed, we will give you the support to have the right setup dialed to what you are exactly looking for. Also, using coilovers will reduce the body roll on street use so it will still feel like regular even if you are higher.

      "Of course it can be an interesting way to start selling this kind of setup to VW customers too, as already have many request for lift setup on subaru after building a custom setup for a mountain bike company.

      "let us know if you have any other questions."

      Can't wait until I save up enough cash for these. Sorry kids, better get scholarships...

      I want to lift my Atlas; 12+ inches of ground clearance (with SCALE adjustable shocks and the right tires) would be spectacular!

      Not sure if you guys saw my post, probably a few months old, did the Scale coilovers sometime in May. They are very well known on the racing scene, and lucky for me, right here in my province of Quebec, Canada. I actually drove down to their shop (3 hours), and had them put on the kit. I did not want it slammed, and will probably lift it a bit next summer.

      Sadly, for those of you looking to lift it up for the winter, this is NOT possible. The rear spring is mounted seperately from the adjustable shock, which means if you want to raise the truck, you will need a different / higher spring. This is my dilemna now, whether I go through the trouble of custom making slightly higher springs, or as crazy as this sounds, put back on the OEM setup for the winter, which will of course preserve the coilovers and avoid the salt eating away at them (I had them powder coated to avoid this).

      Here are some pics…

      So am I reading it correctly that the raising spring would give a +1" lift?
