View Full Version : another suspension question

03-21-2006, 08:47 PM
hey is there any way that suspension on a 2000 1.8T that has red struts is not the sport suspension if it is stock?

also when your looking for lowering springs and it says it has a drop of 1.25" is that from the fender to the wheel of sport suspension or of the stock suspension.

i plan on changing the shocks but just want to know what the drop is. thanks

the drop they specify is for non-sport, so if you have sport add another 1/2 or 1/4 inch, i forget.

and on your other question, red struts=sport suspension. All other stock suspension has black struts.

I think the sport suspension drop is about 20mm.

sport struts usually have lower spring perches than stock struts too. it's not just the springs that do the lowering.
