Title: Mk4 r32 golf
Post by: woodywoodchucked on June 02, 2017, 06:03:01 pm
Hey guys,

Jus in a need of a bit of help.. I've jus been for my first wof and the car seems to be quite low, talking 86mm. Went back to the dealer who said the installer is at fault. Installer suggested putting spacers in to lift it..  little did they know they already installed spacers (dumbasses) so got a new set of springs to only lower 25mm.. still not so good news as its only moved to 95mm. Installer is also saying the shocks are still good

Any suggestions on how I can raise it the 5mm to the 100mm legal limit or ideas would be appreciated

Cheers
Wazza

Are they measuring from the right point on the car? What brand were installed before and what has been put in now? Are they R32 specific springs? Who did the install out of interest?

What tyre pressure you running? Raising to 45psi might come close to 5mm.

Or even slightly wider tyres will give you a bit more height.
