Eibach Spring help


New member
Hi guys.

Some advice needed.

I got a golf mk6 1.6tdi dsg

I put some Eibach lowering springs into my car OE Number: 5K4071677A
The fronts have lowered, but the rear doesn’t seem to have lowered the 30mm drop.

I’ve cut the bump stops on the rear and it wasn’t riding on that.

I’ve had the springs in for 3 days now, how long do they take to settle?

Anyone had these springs in before?

They’ve been seated correctly as I have checked and so has a mechanic.

Any ideas, thanks

That number is OEM, OEM sport I think. Fits 2010 - 2014 golf.
Are you saying you took these out or put them in.
Do you have the rear springs properly seated in the isolators? They sort of lock in place.
Springs settle over time but if your back is too high, it won't settle into place over time.
