Yup that's exactly what I was trying to confirm. I bought the 5G4071 677 E kit from someone. The kit number is listed on the box, but I just wanted to make sure that the Mubea numbers printed on the actual springs were legit. Can't be too careful buying things from strangers. Plus I was a little concerned over the 890kg vs 950kg spec for the MUB 071 676 C springs not matching up properly. But I eventually found out that this is a ROW vs NA thing?? Is that correct?

Anyway, thanks for the confirmation.

Well had you said that earlier...

Good discussion though.

Figgy, to be honest I'm wondering about your confusion. If I remember correctly we
had the exact same discussion some time ago. Didn't you already try 'IRS springs'
on your 'torsion beam Golf'? Didn't you already experience an odd rake due to these
wrong springs? Didn't I already tell you which kit would have been the right one at
that time? Obviously there are dedicated springs existent for your Golf because it is
no less than mandatory to use the correct ones, since torsion beam axle Golfs need
shorter springs than 'IRS Golfs':




Yeah I hear you loud and clear trust me breaking badly. I'm gonna call the service dept to see if they can tell me what the actual MUB part numbers are on the spring kits before I purchase. If they can guarantee the correct PNs as per TUV spec sheet then I should be good to go. Thanks again for all your help.

Some of yall may have seen my name hop everywhere in the forums asking about springs, but tonight I finally pulled the trigger and confidently ordered some DG Springs after much debate. Should be in this week and will install them end of next week.

Can you keep us updated once they are installed please? I am looking to lower my mk7 Golf TDI and of course need a comfy ride. Pics would be appreciated once complete.

On a side note, NA spec Golf TDI = torsion beam rear axle.
From what I remember DGs for torsion beam are hard to obtain in the US.

^^ This. There's only one part number in the US and it's not for TDI

I saw some pictures from MK6 and saw that the DG for those models look lower. Would you say that's true or that they're relatively the same?

Got so sick of trying to figure out the riddle of correct DG springs with all the different PNs so I went with Eibach Pro kit springs. Thanks to breaking badly for all his help and advice. Seriously appreciated. Im absolutely delighted with them. Perfect 35mm drop back and front no rake issues and handling is perfect. No VWR jarring hard. VWRs might be great if you got the roads highways motorways for them but very careful if you are going to be using rough pot holed filled roads. This is my 3rd set of springs DGs then VWRs now Eibachs. Happy its all sorted out now. It was a rough ride pardon the pun

What is the PN for the Eibachs you chose? Also are they Linear or Progressive?

PN is E10-15-021-04-22 for Golf 1.6TDI with torsion beam axle. I found https://suspension-shop.com/ to be extremely helpful for getting correct PN’s for different models. These are progressive springs. Hope this helps

Euro Eibach Pro springs are linear, even though they're advertised as progressive.

And that's a good thing.
