I love them. I had them on my B5 Audi A4 and they rode and handled great. So I stuck with what I knew best and have no regrets using them on my GTI.

Do they handle better than stock though? i have heard they are nice and comfortable, but as a result, don't drive well.

I have never auto crossed my cars but have always like to test the limits of my suspension on curves I have encountered and loved how it handles. I have my dampening set halfway mainly because its my daily driver still.

Nice build thread Rec1. I think it looks fanfrickintastic with the Koni's and the Detroits.


Have you managed to get the pendulum spacer above installed yet? I'd like to hear how that works out for you as I'm interested in the crisper shifts and lessened wheel hop it is supposed to give. And I'm curious how much it winds up costing to get it installed.
