Hi there,

I have a mkv r32 2008 5 door.
I'm considering lowering my car and don't know what's better/cheaper.
Where I live, there are some stupid speed bumps so I don't want the car too low, just to sit nicely.
I'm keeping the stock 18" too as I kinda like them.
The main outcome that I want though is improved comfort!!!
So a little drop will be good but the main thing is comfort comfort comfort.

Springs I've heard h&r? Eibach sport line? And tein h/s tech?

Not sure about coil overs?

Also I'm not sure what things are needed altogether?

With coil overs do you get everything in one package.
And springs you have to buy shocks dampers etc as well?

I'm not sure on all this :s

Cambers? Struts, shocks, Roll bars etc?

Please help!

Thanks Andy

I would go for lowering springs as they are the cheapest, handling will pretty much stay the same and it wont be too low to go over speed bumps. If you want to stiffen up the handling a bit go for coilovers but will cost more if you get a decent brand and you can set the ride height how u want. Just depends what your after really
