I've just discovered that my rear offside spring has snapped on my Mk4
VW have quoted £500+ to replace both the rears (they won't do one at a time, they suggested).
Looks like I can get one of the more well known VAG specialists to do a full set of four Eibach springs for £395 fitted.
Having not lowered before, I've got a few questions before I take the plunge, if anyone is able to help?
- Will I find the drop causes issues on speed bumps etc?
- Will I see the shocks take any extra wear for being lowered?
- Would lowering it affect the handling of the car much?
- and can I expect uneven tyre wear, even with proper alignment?
As a total newbie to suspension troubles, presumably coilovers are going to be massively more expensive, so I've ruled those out, unless there's a really good reason not to?
