    MK 5 Coilovers?

    Who is running coilovers on their Mk 5?

    If so what ones, how much were they and where did you get them from?

    Also any good or bad points to them as well please.

    Cheers.

    ive been looking at some too, i know a few van owners that are running kw's 2, and have rated them very highy! but are also a tad pricey! the spax ones are much cheaper and my dads bought these for his mk4 and the build quality is spot on, so its more down to how much you spend! lmf seem to have the best selection, and also ebay is quite cheap for them!

    Paul makes sure that you THOUROUGHLY grease the threads on those coilovers as they're galvanised. That zinc will chew through in no time and render them shagged if no properly treated
