<br>Quick question. Are the springs that come factory on a R model any different ride high from normal N/A springs? If they are lower do you know by how much? Also I think they are about 10% stiffer than normal springs, does this sound right?<br>

Why don't you call a dealership? Their parts department could tell you very quickly.

All they go by is your chassis number then order the correct springs for your car.

Re: Question about 850 R springs (JRL)

Oh, um...no I wasn't kidding you. Lest I didn't know you worked at a dealership, you didn't mention that part, sarcasm aside.<p>Try IPD then. If anyone can tell you they can, otherwise I guess you're sol. : <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If you would rather not have sarcastic responses try not to give the same in answers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
