PIC REQUEST - GTI'S on Eibach Sportline springs

Post by mboyle4 » Fri Mar 26, 2010 10:25 pm

I have recently purchased a set of eibach sportline lowering springs (50/35) and was hoping to see a few pics of gti's with these springs on. I was also hoping to use these springs with the original shocks or is that a bad idea? Anyone running standard shocks with these springs.

Thanks

What's the drop on that? And I'm guessing their 15's right?

Umm lets see. No they are not. They are 16x7 BBS RX2s from a Golf mate. How about you dont tell me what I have fitted to my car!?

Compare to this, which is 15s, its visibly different:

Standard Shocks or Uprated? Sorry for the questions but this is next on my list :)

.. and also the ride quality.. I imagine it's not much that much harder than standard...

Dont think standard shocks will be a problem unless lowering a lot i.e more than 60mm, im going to run my standard shocks for a while and see how it goes, obviously if moneys no object you would change shocks and springs :)

Both pictures are standard shocks. Id run it as is it for now and see what you think. The only reason I changed was because I had a damaged shock thread that needed to be sorted out!

16" RXIIs are 6.5 wide dude! Same as the 5X100 version. The 16" RXs are 7.

Indeed. When did you own RXs dude?

Always had a soft spot for those wheels.
