My MK4 R32 is due to go in for new brakes, pads upgraded lines and calipers as well as a complete service.
I know from the last time it was on a lift that it would need at least one shock absorber and two springs, I'm guessing it still has the original shocks that came with the car so I'm thinking about replacing all of them.
With the cost to replace all the shocks and springs with new OEM replacements I was wondering if there is a better option?
For most people coilovers would be the obvious choice, the problem is I don't want to lower the car as I use it daily and currently struggle to get over the speed bumps where I live plus am also worried about making the ride too crashey for daily driving. Also from what I have read online in regards to coilovers options for the MK4 even with the coilovers in the highest setting the car would still be sitting lower than stock? So to me I can't see the value in the coilovers.
Really my question comes down to, replacing the OEM springs and shocks with new OEM parts will give me what I think I want from the suspension but am I missing out? Given what I would spend is there an aftermarket option I should consider that would give me the same ride height and comfort as OEM but would be better option because it's more durable, lighter or for some other reason?
Thanks in advance.
