Which SUV from VW do you all prefer? I would like to tow a small trailer and go on dirt roads to go fishing.

I have reached out to APR in the past. They said 0.028” and I’m only high torque 93 Stage 1 w/ CAI.

Yeah for towing I’d go TDI (if you need to tow heavy stuff). If you don’t want to have to mess with diesel get one with a V6. If you don’t need to tow more then 2-3k pounds then I think the 4 cylinder will do it.

The older Gen Toureag is smaller then the newer one if you don’t need to carry a lot of people.

Mabey I'm running to big of a gap at 0.032" which I think is the stock (VW factory) gap. I am APR stage 2 should I regap them all?

How do I assemble this shit. (Rear shock mount)

basically how does it all fit together with the shock?
Those are NOT MK6 rear shock dust boots or bump stops

I don't know why they include those....I'm pretty sure those are older/MK4 parts

You can reuse what you have though (the bump stop is attached to the rear plastic boot that slides up into the OEM rear shock mount), or buy new ones:

I mean here’s the parts list right from Eibach.
Says 2010 GTI but I assume it’s all the same for MK6s

guess I shoulda mentioned these came from a Eibach pro kit. Doing a Koni and Eibach cup kit.
