They will fit, but you have to remember the 2.8 is a heavier car. Get the ones made for the 1.8T.

if its made for a heavier car it will lower yours less... lighter car, less pushing down on the spring.

check the part numbers on the springs for each car. i think some companies dont even make different ones for the 2.8 and 1.8

Will have a different spring rating as mentioned, you won't get the same drop.

The 2.8 is a heavier motor, so you may see that the front won't drop as much as the rear.....

You just don't listen do you? It's not going to be the same.

EVIL - I just called Eibach (I'm weird that way, love to be right!) and they say that they will not fit. Even you can shove them in, the ride will be WAY TOO STIFF.

H&R sports are the same for the 2.8 and 1.8. check the part number and see. i would think that they would fit a 96 - 2001.5 also

haha i just called them aswell and talked to somone it only took 1 min. thats great customer service anyways what they said was:

the guy took the model number and all that shit he said the springs will not be any stuffer generally these springs drop the car roughly 1.5in on a 2.8q on a 1.8q it will drop it 1.25in which is fine and dandy with me. thx for all your input.
