Ok, I know this has been covered many times before, but I can't find any pertinent info with a search of the old forums. So what are you all running for shocks and springs on your A2 GTI's? Bilstein group ? ?, coil overs or no?, spring rates? Where can you purchase said equipment and how much $(approx.) DMS is too much $$ for a poor Canuck. Thanks.

Well, I am no expert but I am using a koni strut with 2.5" coilovers. The secret to keeping the koni's from destoying themselves is to use a long snubber (3-4 inch) The benifit from konis is the price, plus you may even be able to pick up a used set from a road racer. I have heard of people running everything from 350lb Front - 280lb Rear to 225lb Front - 325lb Rear, so I guess set up really depends on how you like your car to feel.

250 front.....175 rear is a good place to start. I like my bilsteins. Id also check into H&R's dune buggy kit, but you might save money in the long run by getting DMS to start with.
