Suspension Adjustment (ie. post-lowering)
« on: February 22, 2005, 11:26:39 AM »
Lower Control Arms:
- Loosen and retighten the inner suspension joints with the car resting on it's suspension (ie not on jacks).

Upper Control Arms:
- Set the arms to a specific angle (calculated at the new ride height from the Bentley manual) since it is difficult to get at the inner nuts with the car sitting on the ground.

About the Bentley Manual specified angle..

what is the formula? I will be lowering my 98 1.8T Wagon this early springs and don't want to crap out any other suspension components early. I'm @ nearly 105Gs and want another 145.

Most likely will be going with Nuespeed springs and eithe Koni or Bilsteins for shocks (The CB5 GBs by S_Klass)

Thanks!

Stephen, I don't know. I just posted straight from post I found from Jesse.
I'd just work it out...you have three of the measurements to get the fourth. (My math is so weak). Stock ride height (or very close to it), stock spec and new ride height. I'd build a ratio calculation or whatever it's called. If anyone has any insightful information, please insert here.
