what is the best way to lower a 1998 V70R awd?<br>i just installed a set of front Bilstein Touring struts and it appears that the ride height increased approx. .5 to 1 inch in the front. i thought about lowering the front only with lowering springs and keeping the rear suspension stock to save cost. what is your opinion? i do not race nor do i take the R to the track. it's basically a hauler for my track bikes. so far the self leveling rear nivomats are doing the job so i'm in no need of replacing these expensive shox.<br>will lowering the front only, work? <br>thanks <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: lowering springs? (jabooty)

I don't know what there is if anything for an AW but Bilstains ALWAYS RAISE <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> these cars about 1/2". If you use a mild drop spring <B>in front only</B> you will wind up with a total of maybe a 3/4" drop in front. <br>I have done this setup before (twice) and like it
