1.8 mk1 suspension

Postby Azz Kiker » Tue Jun 28, 2005 7:22 am

Having a few problems with the front suspension on my 5. the driver side spring is on its way out and im starting to worry. would it be best to replace both sides at the same time? does anyone know where i can find 45mm lowering springs... im sure its been dropped that but not sure.

It is always recommended to replace shock absorbers or springs in pairs as even if the other side looks ok it will have worn or relaxed compared to a new one. :?

the shop im going to get them only sells them in sets of 4... should i just go ahead and replace the whole suspension or would that just be silly as the back is fine.
