    35mm H&R on Golf GT TDI Mk5.

    I have the 35mm H&Rs on my Golf at the moment, but its catching underneath so much, day to day driving has become a nightmare as its always scraping.. Ive been told that the GT/GTI has a total different set of springs from H&R which are only 30mm. Can any shed some light onto this, should i change the springs? only had the 35's on for 300 miles

    No it should be fine but it would of been best to get the specific springs for your car.
