I should also note I'm currently running 10mm spacers up front and 15mm in the rears.

Don't want any rubbing, hence going with dsg springs for my dsg gti. Not too worries about rake, just want a planted lower setup

Still have not installed my dg springs, but just ordered some koni yellows. Might as well do it right the first time , even though im at 28k with stock shocks.

Total will be $476 after koni rebate.

Do the DGs come with new bump stops?

Not sure if trimming them will be necessary or not? My VWR springs came with shorter bump stops, so maybe they don't drop enough to need trimming. If you're putting all new parts in, you might as well put new bump stops in.

Will be getting new bump stops just not sure to go with the oem US spec (70mm-133mm) ones or shorter euros specd ones. (55mm-118mm)

I will probably also replace the front endlinks and the rear shock mounts aswell

Just dont know if its really necessary on a car that has 28k miles

So think I'm going to start saving up for some Bilstein B8s to pair with my VWR springs. I think they are just to stiff for the stock dampers. Tired of the squeaking majority of the time and the crash ride. Lesson learned! I even had the shock mount and bearing replaced on one side because I thought it was a bad bearing.

Just making sure the Bilstein sport (B8) pairs better than the B6 (HD)?

So i got my dg springs and koni yellow's installed. Went with 1 full turn from soft in the front and 3/4 in the rear. Stopped by the shop, drove the car for a bit definitely firmer but a nice firm. Will pick up the car in the morning. Think it will be a fun drive to work

Only thing the mechanic was not happy with is the negative camber on the front right its at -1.59.
He offered to slot the strut tower but i told him ill wait and put some miles 4-5k and then we will look at the front right tire wear.

He didn't put as much negative camber in the rear to offset the front. So technically its out of vw spec at the moment.

And i don't have a before specs ,he forgot to measure it.

Do you guys think that much negative camber in the front right will be bad? Car drives fine , doesn't pull goes straight .

Pics
Before


After ( Car also needs a wash lol)


And to add to the comparison spotted this MK7 GTI today, i swear the wheel gap is worse than the stock mk6 suspension. But a nice car either way.
