Newbie question:

I am installing the VW lowering springs (~1") as well as 15mm wheel spacers. The shop who is installing these for me warned about axle vibration (I believe?) and to research/check with other owners who have done the same.

Volkswagen Sport Springs:

ECS Wheel Spacer & Bolt Kit - 15mm With Ball Seat Bolts:
https://www.ecstuning.com/ES250727/

Any help appreciated.

First, I'd try to use a shop that specializes in tuning VW. Maybe ask around in your regional section here:

Also, since this is suspension specific maybe ask here:

I just installed these on my 13 GTI with Laguna wheels and they are a perfect fit for me. Definitely gave me the look I was looking for, I also went with the 10.5mm in the front. Definitely get the longer bolts for a proper hold. Ive had zero vibrations with these.

It looks like one of your spring is flipped and put on upside down.

Hey guys, last weekend I installed the unitronic intake. Crazy sounds but I did notice during wide open throttle at 4k+ rpms it makes an awful whining noise.

So I've been told it does this due to the diverter valve.

Those who have had this issue what have you done to remedy it?

Unitronic has a DV relocation kit that solves this issue.

OEM or aftermarket? If aftermarket, go with Ed, he's in Canadia too. He is doing a group buy now I think.
