Hey saved up enough to get some springs for my B5. I have Bilstein sport shocks ready to go, just waitin on what springs to get for them.

I've narrowed it down to H&R race springs, and Neuspeed Race springs.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any pictures of both set ups.

NS race drop, 2" front and back
H&R race drop, 1.9" front and 1.5" back

I will be running stock rims and stock sized rubber, so no rubbing issues. Just wondering on what springs would work better with my shocks. BTW they are not grooved.

Here you go bro, it's on Bilstein sport and Neuspeed race. If you have stockers you should be good to go [up]

Thanks, that looks so nice slammed like that. I was just wondering how much they lower the car (the numbers that neuspeed supplies) compared to the numbers that H&R claims for their race.

Just a little concerned about getting them on mine that the front and back will be uneven. The H&R ones are staggered, so I figure that's for a reason, possibly to keep it looking level. I just don't want the back to be sagging or hiding more tire than the front.

It's different for your car :(

neuspeed says their race spring lower your car 1.25 front and back and H&R says their springs lower it 1.7 front and 1.6 back. Not sure how the H&R's could be that low considering how low yours is.

C'mon B5 owners, HELP lol
