i must be search retarded because i tried looking up threads of people with a 2" drop... i cant find one so what im asking is, anyone in here running Neuspeed Race springs im thinking about doing it but i want to see pictures of peoples rides with a 2" drop, i dont want to be stupid low where my car wont be practical anymore, ive been there with my MK3 jetta im not doing that again, if it helps im gonna be running 18" rims so will a 2" drop be to much for the wheel size?

if you want practical dont go 2" cause they will bed after a while . eibach actually makes a modest drop that looks great and they dont sag to much with time.

I wouldn't do it with 18"s... Fender rubbing is very annoying after a while.

You also lose alot of drivability.

If anything, get Race springs and then get the "grooved" Bilsteins, that allow you to raise it and lower it each 1/4"... That way you would be just above 2" and it would still look good...

I have grooved Bislteins, and I'm about to do that...

the key words i put in were "dropped" "2" drop" and "neuspeed race springs" i didnt get what i wanted to i just posted up my own to see if anyone in here could help me, as for the grooved bilstiens that might be an option
