Aftermarket suspension upgrades can dramatically enhance your car’s looks and cornering ability. Combined with upgraded anti-roll bars, you will see and feel an impressive reduction in body roll which will help you preserve the perfect suspension geometry for maximum grip.
With sports springs your comfort-oriented driving pleasure is the main focus. The vehicle’s center of gravity is lowered, reducing body roll for better dynamics, whilst maintaining the ride quality and comfort of your car. Meanwhile, the car’s appearance is transformed. The springs lower the sports models (GTI, R, S3 etc) by 20-30 mm in order to get rid of those nasty wheel arch gaps whilst preserving the wheel travel needed for dynamic ride & handling.
Go lower or stiffer than Racingline’s springs and your car can bounce and crash as the dampers are mismatched to spring-rate, and the springs themselves run out of travel. Racingline’s progressive-rate spring construction means the spring rate in the middle of travel is very similar to standard. It’s only towards the end of the spring’s travel (so, when braking or cornering hard) that Racingline have engineered the spring to stiffen up. It’s this progressive-rate spring design that gives such good ride quality.
