    I've just bought an '03 plate 2.0 TDi Sport.

    Want to bring the ride height down a bit.

    I've come from a 106 GTi which use front shocks and springs and just a rear torsion bar.

    I'm looking to drop it a mere 30mm (unless anyone can advise more of a drop). But i want a proper setup.

    I was really looking for education on the setup of the suspension and where and what to get.

    Thanks.

    Your Sport will be slightly lower then standard anyway so if your wanting around a 30mm drop you'll need to go for about a 40mm+ kit. Any good springs and shocks kit will do you fine or if your wanting to spend abit less and if your shocks are still low mileage then a good spring kit is also a choice. Here's a few springs and shocks kit options below..
