Has anyone ever tried regular struts/shocks from the MK3s? I know the rears in the MK3s use a "coil over" shock design, so I'm wondering if they'd work.
I'm looking for adjustable shocks, with a low rate spring, and good travel. I don't want to lower it a single MM, though.
if you use just the shock, and no perch, it would work. As the factory set up the spring and perch is too big to be up there (but i am sure you personally are talking about just the shocks, posting that as you cannot use a vw cup kit) i also used bilsteins off a 99 mustang on mine, but they are @ 4" shorter than stock. But that was paired us with h&r springs with one cut coil.. and also need sleeve spacers on the lower mounting bolt.
Hunter, they are done. And i am 99% sure they would work with factory struts as well for a end link upgrade. but the spacing might need changed (add/remover washers and/or longer bolts?)
