What's up man ha, I'm gonna go with the DKM twin disk. Plenty of holding power for my future mods without being too aggressive for daily driving. It's organic disk material is like stock so minimal chatter if any and no harsh engagement like a comparable ceramic single disk

Do you mean 'For Sale', or just do we use it?

I'm running one.

Ditto... Although I just picked up Maestro so I might be looking to part ways with the JB4 in the coming weeks (just in case the question was geared towards "For Sale").

Anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get my springs installed at a decent price but still get some quality work? I can do the installation myself but wouldn't like to atm as its getting pretty cold. BTW I'm in the Raleigh area

If you're up for a little drive I do spring installs. $160, Clover SC

I've done a few dozen spring and coilover installs, aircraft mechanic for a major airline as my day job (night shift)

Hey Cuzinmk7, I mentioned in a post last month Mike Gentile from AutoResource. He is an Audi certified tech and very knowledgeable.. He is located in Cary, very near Raleigh.. He works on my Mk7 Golf and he is super

Thanks for the quick replies guys! Clover is a bit of a drive for me lol so I may try to find something local for now, but thanks for the offer! nofuiyo, thank you for the recommendation, ill try to look him up and contact him for a quote. I contacted some local popular shops and they all want $800+ which seems ridiculous to me. I did find one that quoted me at $300 but I'm a little worried about the quality since its a bit on the cheaper side.

Is it that mount or the torque arm mount insert that gets rid of the sound of the small troll hammering away at the underside of the car when a hard pull and shift happen?
