Linear Eibachs for GTI

From what I have read most people say the Euro Eibachs are linear while the US ones are progressive, and on Amazon they are listed as progressive, even though in pictures they look linear. This seems to be the part number: E10-15-021-02-22. Can anyone clear this up for me?

Ah, they certainly do look progressive here. What options exist for linear then, DG and Neuspeed?

Thought Neuspeeds were progressive too. That's why I didn't jump on them while on sale.

My understanding is DG and VWR are the only linear springs for the MK7. DG if you want a barely noticeable drop, VWR if you want a bit lower (1.2-1.5").

Can't go wrong with VWR imo, they are a nice drop without getting stupid. Wouldn't want to go any lower.

http://www.racingline-performance.com/vwr-sport-springs says progressive, but yes they look linear.

I think you are right about Neuspeed. They don't show it on their website, but you can see it on ECS.

Emmanuele Design and DG are linear.

a lot of places use a stock photo to sell common things like springs, the eibach pro kit is def progressive. Those look linear in the pics.

Neuspeeds are progressive. Doesn’t mean they are bad though. Loved them with B8’s.

I contacted Eibach UK sales and they stated the E10-15-021-02-22 euro pro kit are indeed linear front and back.

Depends on what they say the drop is. I don't want to replace the OE dampers so I don't want too much drop. If the drop is 1" or less and I can do it myself, I will.

with that part number for the Mk7 golf Gti I would expect lowering of around 15mm

it lwoers the standard around 25-30mm front and 15-20mm rear being the Gti they're already lower then the standard chassis which this is measured off so take that measuement to get your approx drop.


Best Regards

Sales
So basically like the DG, but it looks like little chance of reverse rake. Not sure if reverse rake if a known DG issue.

Thank you Torito, that may have sold me. Any chance you could take a fender to ground measurement? TIA

I did a bunch of research on this as well demi9od, the euro spec Eibach's are definitely linear. Not sure why the US has only the progressive option. Anyways, you can get the linear ones on ebay through international sellers. Another option is to go with the Bilstein B12 Pro cup kit which is available in the US. This consists of B8 dampers paired with the linear version of Eibach's Pro springs. You can find a review of the cup kit here

Is there a source for the Eibach Euro Pro in linear in the US?
