I would always question putting on susension onto a car that is cheaper than the OEM setup! You have to ask yourself about the quality ofthe ride etc! I'm sure many of these cheap kits are fine for slamming your car... But what are the ride?? I'm getting some weitec gt on mine.. 500quid so should be a quality bit of kit!!

i know they're cheap but hottuning seems be well used on mkivs so im thinking of trying them, i don't mind a hard ride as i use alot of dual carriage ways and bypass's so not many potholes or speed bumps. Do i need any other bits i.e roll bar drop links or anything? Did look at a few more sets but there half price to most so gotta be worth a shot?

i was thinking go as low as possible on the rear and investigate the fronts probably go as low as i dare and see where it sits with the arb maybe get drop links and leave the arb standard see where it sits though first?

double price though as far as i know? i think ill give them a try as they are a big saving and can report back on ride/handling! i need them asap so i gotta look cheap as not got alot of spare cash atm, should have enough at the end of the month to buy them and drop links so i think thats the way i need to go will have a look around for the weitec ones though as may find a bargain!

There's a thread at the Moment Gav over on mkivs of a guy with a mk4 that is fed up of the harsh ride of weitec. Think he was going to try to improve it by changing to anni bump stops...

i was reading that this morning, thats the reason i dont want to spend a fortune on coilies, as if i dont like the ride of a cheap set i can just bin them whereas if ive spent 5-800£ on them its a bigger sacrifice if you cant sell them on!! hopefully order them end of the month so will be working on getting him down a bit more on price lol apparantly i can use my own tops off the standard shocks?
