I am looking at getting the H/R coilover setup for my FWD 98 1.8T and was wondering what type of drop to expect. Can anyone who has this setup post pics. Also what type of ride quality do the H/R coilovers give?
Thanks[drive]

All coils drops are about the same, just most people dont use the bottom half of the threads. H&R ride fine, but they rust out (Fl or NY?) and they've been known to bend struts. I'd say check out some other companies.

some kw's would be a good bet. v1's, v2's, or v3's.

They come with a corrosive preventer. But I think anything that is used up north will rust, even if it's aluminum [:D]

My wife has the H&R's and loves them. I wish it had adj damper. But, I think it ride 200% better then the lowering springs.

Wish I took some pics of the car before I ripped the motor out.

I have a set of H&R and love them. I will post a pic or two when my car gets back on the ground. just like 98a4 said you problably wont use the bottom half of the threads.

i have them on mine. they ride nice, i have no fender gap at all and i could go lower if i wanted. it would be nice to have damper adj but they are great. on a downside, i already have a blown front left strut, only after two years. not sure on the warranty, thats what im checking into now.

Thanks for the comments everyone. My old roommate infinkc also had H&R C/Os, you can search for him on audiworld for pics if you really want to see other setups.
