hey people..new to the site and also to the leon scene. bought myself a black 1.9 tdi with cupra r kit. 2003 with fsh and mechanically sound. few little bits and pieces id like to tidy like...

-broken mudguard
-fog light needs replaced
-worn gearknob and gater
-new back box

car has been lowered by 60mil all round on springs. as soon as i saw the car it was the first thing i wanted to change. want to install coilovers/springs but unsure what to go for. looking for a comfy ride with nice look to it but not on the floor. a little lower at the front ideally for a nice stance. have around a £200 budget for this.

anyone with a tdi that has any pictures of 30/40 spring set up or 40/50 set up? please share.

thanks guys!

You won't get a comfy ride with coilovers you will get quite the opposite your best off with springs

Ok cool thanks...
What kind of dampers should I look at? Budget isn't massive as want to refresh bushes but not with Powerflex...too stiff apparently

Fair one must be 30mm then. 54 Lcr budget around £250

Need money spare to also change bushes all around

Right Damian mate sorry to be a pain but think after some advice I'm gonna go with just springs mate as only 68000 so current Oem shocks should be ok...

Any ideas on which springs with about a 50mm drop and ok for comfort...

Cheers mate Andy
