Confused about 2 different coilover

Post by Wruchamps » Thu Dec 08, 2016 12:32 am

Hi,

Im not sure on coilovers for my 6n2 polo, ive been looking at a few, but there seems to be 2 types, theres the type where all 4 coilovers are all one, e.g. The coil, bump stock, shock is all together. And the other coilovers i see have the shock on its own, then the coil and adjuster is on its own next to it? But there on the rear, just want to know if it matters which ones i get, and can i still get i really small gap between tyre and wheel arch, Sorry im not speaking very mechanical, but hope anyone can help.

Thanks in advance. :)


P.s sorry for the ramble :cry:

Whats your budget?

If cheap and cheerful, people normally go for something like AP coilovers

More expensive ones are available, but the price can vary dramatically.

I was looking at Ap coilovers, and my budget is £300-£500, so ik can get something a bit descent.
