    another suspension question!

    just a quickie! I want a new setup for my 1.8t sport, will a mk4 setup work? I'm sure it'll fit but will the spring and damping rates be right?


    Cheers

    nothing to complain yet.

    the adjustable dampers are excellent and the settings on them do make a difference

    The original statement is correct the FWD mk4 golf suspension will fit a FWD A3.

    The FWD mk4 golf will NOT fit an A3 Quattro or an S3

    The 4Motion mk4 golf will fit an A3 Quattro but will NOT fit a FWD A3
