Stock FTG measurements....

I completely forgot to take some measurements before installing my PSS10's and am curious to know how much the car was lowered.

If anyone could help, that'd be great. Probably better if it was someone from Canada or US, as the Euro version is apparently lower that the NA version.

Thanks.

Mine is 26 1/4" Front and 26 1/2" Rear. 2DR for the sake of being thorough.

Thanks Brett.

I should have mentioned that mine is 4DR, but I think that's standard here in Canada anyways.

IIRC the euro spec R is 25mm lower and the NA spec is about 13mm lower.

My gti was pretty much dead on 26" ftg when it was stock. MT Gti's sit about .5" lower than DSG's.

here's one:



and a few more here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/54939802@N07/

I swapped the PSS10's from my GTI to my R, you can see more in my MKVI GTI photos as well, however, the R is a tad lower on them.

These are my first set of coilovers and I've got no complaints whatsoever. $$$ well spent.
