Suspension time

Just bought all the bits I need to sort out the suspension.

Ordered/stashed ready to go on......

Bilstein B16 PSS10's - had these on the Golf ED30 and they were superb.
Whiteline heavy duty droplinks - a new addition not tried before, but worthwhile as the R is heavy.
Powerflex full polybush front and rear kits - Takes the remaining slack out of the suspension and last much longer than the OEM saggy rubber ones.
Whiteline Anti-lift Kit - Help my launches a little more.
H & R Front and rear ARB's - Should help me get a little more oversteer in the car and cut out the car leaning in cornering.
THS engine mounts - will keep the engine stable under load, so no rocking engine and better transmission of power to where it should go....the wheels.

The suspension parts were fitted today so here are a few comparisons and pics of the day.....

Stock v's H&R ARB diameter - no weight saving here as they are solid


Stock v's Whiteline front droplinks - the droplinks are stiffer & lighter


The kit chosen was due to recommendations and good reviews on here and other forums....Cheers guys


Surprisingly all the Powerflex bushes were MK5 parts. Part numbers below....







Hmmm, possibly a touch lower at the front maybe?

The coilovers still had to settle in the first pic and have about another inch lowering available both front and rear.



Another pic after a little run and settling the coilovers down.

Steel Grey - slightly lighter than CSG - European color option.
