    Coilovers and shortened drop links?

    I'm looking at getting a set of coilies for my 2005 2.0tdi dsg. Are shortened drop links necessary? Also, any recommendations for the best place to buy them?

    Thanks in advance!

    I had FK coilovers in my 2004 TDI and my drop links rubbed off the drive shafts on full lock.

    Some coil companies supply their on links but FK, at the time, didn't so I would suggest adjustable ones from the likes of whiteline if the company you go for do not supply their own DL's.
