GTI Suspenion Q
« on: July 13, 2006, 12:04:18 AM »
Hey guys,

Does anyone know if there is a spacer some where in the front suspenion on MKIV's?  I've looked on vortex and some people after before and after pics of taking out the spacer.  Also when I put the coils on my car they came directly off the previous car and the front was noticably lower than mine once they where installed.

Here's an example:
With Spacer

Without Spacer


There's quite a few here who have either worked on MKIV suspension, so any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kev

Yes, there is.  A little aluminum spacer, perhaps a 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch.  It's in the Bentleys, in the front strut exploded view.

not all mk4s have this spacer though.  I think it was 2002 they started putting it in.

HAHA! That's YOUR GTI I see at the PNR every day...I admire it every day wondering if I know the owner...in fact, I saw  you standing at the Station about a week go or so...my bus was late.

Dude...sounds like a CL "Missed Connections" post :lol:

If your talking about the I-25 PNR yep that's me every day.  Also Jay I think I saw your Jetta yesterday sitting at a soprts bar at Monaco and Evans.

Funny enough the GTI I posted a pic of is the same color and has Flik wheels just like mine.

My GTI is an '03.
