Honestly if you want to tuck 18's, springs aren't going to do it. They'll be close, but still .3-.5" off. My super sports sit pretty even but I can get a finger or two in between the fender and the tire. That's with 225/45/17's on the stock Classix. Won't be much different with a 225/40/18 though. Eibach has the sportlines that are also a ~2" drop (~1.3" for 08/09's), and Vogtland has 50mm springs that are about the same as the super sports and sportlines. They also offer a 60mm which is slightly lower, but still not tucking low I don't think.yeah the winter roads in calgary are garbage at best, it'll be parked in the garage for winter and i'll buy another beater (had an 89 scirocco last winter )
is there any spring/shock combos that will tuck with the 18" huffs? i just don't think 1.3" drop will satisfy me visually haha...
im not against coils, but i don't wanna spend an arm and a leg on suspension as its not being tracked.
if i could get a really good deal on coils i would pick up a set...
anyone think $800 is too much for a used set of FK silverlines (unsure of how many km's)
With a few hundred pounds in the car (4 wheels, a jack, etc. for autox), it will tuck Classix. Otherwise, as gtboost said, I have about .5" of gap as well. 18's are about the same. My buddy had the super sports I'm on right now with Huffs and it didn't tuck them. Looks good, but not tuckage.Yup....Koni's with H&R SuperSports
They go low & will tuck....I've seen it...a local guy that I sold my exhaust to had this setup :thumbsup:
:thumbsup: Though they are quite a bit stiffer than stock suspension. You'll know what I'm talking about in winter when the roads get crappy.I just installed supersports on my gti. I've got the stock 17's on right now but I still have a ~.5 inch of gap. I don't think they will settle enough to tuck. I may just eventually get coils to get a little tuck. Ride on the supersports is very good. It feels like stock but I can tell it handles a decent amount better
I'm not gonna get into an argument or a debate, but from the right angle...it looked like his Huff's were tucked (they had snow tires on them too though).....maybe I'm just wrong.BTW, FWIW, shocks don't matter when dealing with ride height. You could have super sports with no shocks (if that was possible) and it'd still be the same height. Just no damping.
Yeah those are VMR 19's (as far as I know)Lol I wasn't trying to make it an argument. I think it just comes down to what each of our definitions of tucking tire is.
Something like this is my definition of tucking tire. But yeah, it is pretty low. Are those 19's?
They're very similar (the end result/drop)Hi guys,
I want to upgrade springs on my 2008 2 door GTI with 18' Huffs. From what read on this thread if I go with Neuspeed Sport or Eibach Pro I can keep my stock shocks. I don't want to go too low, this a daily driver, just want to remove a bit of wheel gap. I have seen some shots of Neuspeed sport on GTI and I like it. Haven't seen too many on Eibach Pro yet. Which of these springs are better in my scenario? Any other advices would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
not necessarily... ive been on supersports for about 40,000 miles, and my shocks are still fine...They're very similar (the end result/drop)
Eibach Pro-Kit is probably the best setup for daily driving and using the stock shocks though
Neuspeed Sports drop it just a hair lower than the Pro-Kits...literally a hair...you can barely tell
It's almost a toss up between the two
Like CarFreak said....Sportlines are nice & don't ride harsh while giving a killer drop, but they'll kill your stock dampers & the ride will get bouncy quickly.
