Suspension bits are H&R springs and Bilstein shocks with step-adjustable height. The shock bodies have five different grooves to accept a circlip ring to set the height for the spring perch. I've got 'em one up from lowest. Dropped it about 1.5-1.75" from factory. IMO it looks 'proper' now. Especially with 17" wheels instead of the stock 15"s. With the stock quattro 'rally' ride height and the 15s... ugh.

My ride is a little bit stiffer, but that's mostly the shocks. The springs are same length as factory, and are a progessive wind. I only notice the decrease in ride quality on the roughest roads. Or really bad expansion joints.


In other news, stopped by and picked up the ScanGauge tonight. Hooked it up and just got back from ~100 miles of playing around with it. (that, and I was in the mood for a drive anyway)
