Just had a look at EKTA parts for rear springs. There appear to be about 16 zillion different springs for rear altea suspension (about 10 times more for Golf!)
What is the difference between them? Surely some must be the same, you don't need that many different spring rates for the Altea?
Apart from been adjustable, whats the benifits of coilover suspension?
I want to lower my Leon but cant really aford the coilovers but still want to know out of interest.
Also anyone recomend the pest Shocks& spring kit to get. Got 19"s on and want to lose that horid gap between wheel and...
Am looking to handle up my mk1 fr. Now do i go for a complete suspension kit.. ? or do i do decent springs ,underside arb , and powerflexx bushes ? .. There both about same cost wise obviously a little extra work.. But what do i do ?? i can do the springs and shocks at a later date...
Where can I get some good but reasonably cheap springs to improve the ride?Need some good value as I already have the great car but do not have lots of spare cash at the moment.
By the way well done to swiftcover.com with the way they dealt with our claim and the cheapness of the cover.
Has anyone here added just springs to the FR instead of both new dampers and springs. Does it help much with ride quality? It has been suggested on here that the springs are the biggest factor in improving ride quality and that the dampers on the FR are sufficiently good already.
Looking at getting my mum a set of lowering springs for Christmas (lol) for her 2007 Ibiza FR 130.
Has anybody got any pictures of how well these sit on just lowering springs?
If so, please post them :) and if you could let me know which springs you have that would be ace...
Not being funny but how do I know what springs I will have on my car? I am picking up an 07 later in the week and remember the 18s looking really nice. That led me to wonder if it had already had some modification made to the original suspension. Is there any obvious way for me to tell?
I have a MK1 leon 1.6 16v looking at lowering it slightly. Is it hard to change the springs? Took a wheel off today and had a look. Didnt look to bad to take the unit out. I know i will have to take it to get aligned when ive done it tho.

My new Leon FR 170 tdi in Candy white is arriving on Thursday and I am looking to lower her. Can you guys give me some suggestions as to what springs I could fit?
I also want to change the alloys so looking for suggestions on this too (sticking to 18" so I can use existing tyres).....for now...
Hi all, obviously want to lower my cupra, but dont want to waste my money on coilies and not go as low as they allow.
So.. can people with lowering dampers and springs post a pic or 2 of what their cars look like with them and also say what kit they've got and how low they are. If i want to...
I have been doing a lot of searching and found coilovers to be what i want to go for,however i had a good read over warrens coilover sticky in this section, very interesting stuff.
it brings me to question myself whether il benefit more from coilovers or shocks and springs.
im not bothered...
Just a thought, is it possible to shorten the standard springs or are they taper-ended or reduced diameter on both ends of the spring? If not poss, I'll spring :lol: for a set of Eibach Sportlines.............
