VW models have a very low ride height from the factory. Lifting them 1-2 inches can prevent a lot of road debris damage. We outline lift spring options below.
- Stronger springs on OE suspensions can have varying results. We recommend upgraded shocks and struts for any lift spring setup.
- Always get the car aligned after putting in new springs or suspension.
Below is a list of spring substitutions you can use to raise your TDI. Usually these substitutions will raise your car about an inch unless otherwise specified.
Mk. IV Jetta Sedan Springs (front and rear)
Wagon VR6 Front Springs (add 10mm spacers for front springs)
Tiguan Front Springs & OE Sportwagen Rear Springs
1.5″ front lift, 2″+ rear lift.
We recommend the Tiguan FWD springs for the Golf VI as it gives a ride height increase without causing the rear shocks to top out.
While the Tiguan set above will fit, we haven’t yet had enough miles on our Jetta Sedan installation to make a recommendation.
