With an R, I'd trim 1/2in. If not, you're going to get a very harsh ride over bigger bumps. The rake will decrease understeer and increase front traction on acceleration. Just walked to the garage and measured from pinch welds. the rake is 3/4" now, so it's settled a bit. Like I said, the one side of the rear sat really high until I got some miles on the car.Huge thanks for that information... I do have an R so that does change things up a little- I was going to go with VWR, Eibach or 034 (Emmanuals are cool to but read that they sag after driving awhile). Read that VWR seemed to be to harsh across the board for most... and Eibach felt a hair softer to some over stock springs based on the thousands of reviews I read into = )
034 vs APR seemed to be the best two options when sticking with stock shocks etc. (I did read that 034 was lower and 0 rake) I prefer not as low since the R is already low. So went APR-
Hoping since DSG I won't have the rake as bad... as that would make me want to go 034 for sure. Also, wondering if I will still need to trim the bumpstops as I haven't seen anyone do that on ours or in the instructions etc.
Thanks for your input!
