<br>Hello, <br>We have a customer that asked if we could build a set of custom lowering springs that would lower the car ¾” to 1” while retaining the stock spring rate. We got a quote for one set and it is about $600, however if we build 5 or more sets, the price goes down to about $300 per set. So we are putting feelers out to see if anyone else is also interested in this set up. If you are, please send an e-mail to [email protected] and I’ll add you to the list. Once we get 5 people committed, we’ll place the order and production will take about 8 weeks. If we don’t get enough interest by June 1st, we’ll close the offer.<br>Thanks! <br>

I asked you that years ago <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>It should feel more or like my 850 R did with Konis, quite nice!

If I don't track down a set of H&Rs, I'm up for a 1" drop for the front only on my V70. <p>What will be the difference vs trimming off a 1/2 to full coil on a stock spring?<br>

For starters, cutting a stock spring will increase the spring rate.

Ya, if you don't cut off much it shouldn't be too bad, but it technically won't be exactly the same rate, and might even be noticeable. I just figured that's where Chris was going with the question.<p>I'm actually kicking around cutting a little off just the rears on my new V70, as I don't mind where the front is, and it's my winter car so I don't want it slammed, but the rear is significantly higher, and I'd really prefer it level. <p>Okay, maybe a half inch off the front with whatever it takes to match in the back.

It probably isn't higher, it LOOKS higher because of the differently shaped wheel wells.
