Title: Lowering Spring Selection
Post by: Hughbugger on November 18, 2020, 10:51:21 pm
Hi guys. I'm currently on the hunt for some springs for my mk5. Ride quality is a large factor but I'm mainly after less body roll + aesthetics.

What are peoples opinions on the different manufactures? At the moment Jamex is the cheapest @ $300. Other higher end options such as H&R, ST, Eibach are ~$500. Is the money worth it for the high end stuff (If so whats the difference between them) or should I try support NZ made and take the cheaper option?  Thanks, looking forward to hearing your opinions.

Jamex springs are trash. Look into ST, Eibach and Vogtland. H&R is a little harsher than those but that is the decision for you to make

Well you get what you pay for as always. Definitely won't be getting Jamex after the response. No surprises as their main marketing point was their superlow ride height. Anyone had experience with AP ? I had a cup kit on my MK3 GTI and it was great. Does the same apply for the Mk5 springs ? Thanks for the advice
