I have a 2019 gti rabbit as well. I’m looking into getting the same lowering springs! How is it functioning so far?Hi, all!
First post here and I’d like to share some feedback on my setup. After hours of researching all of the threads I could find, looking at everything from springs to coilovers, I decided on H&R OE Sport springs for my 2019 GTI Rabbit w/ DCC.
My goal with this car is OEM-plus; An enjoyable daily driver that could see an occasional lapping day. I love the DCC adjustability from Comfort to Sport, and wanted to retain this feature.
Shoutout to @Hammersticks for your info. If it were not for you, I would not have known to order the Audi TT rear spring pads. I also ordered completely new hardware for everything else and everything came together flawlessly; No noises, no issues whatsoever.
I also just installed Neuspeed RSe10 wheels 18 x 8.5 and could not be happier with their fitment. I have some Michelin Pilot 235/40/18s on order which should tie in everything beautifully.
In terms of ride quality, as a long-time enthusiast who has driven many different cars over the years, I am most impressed with how this particular H&R spring rate comes together with the DCC dampers. Comfort mode is a little soft in rebound so the car has slightly more bounce than with factory springs but Normal mode feels nicely settled for everyday driving, and Sport mode is improved over stock in my observations.
From the factory, the car felt slightly over-dampened and under-sprung in Sport mode, whereas it now feels like the slightly stiffer spring rates with H&R OE Sport matches very well to the DCC dampers in Sport mode. The car feels very planted, with very little body roll, and does not seem to get upset over compressions and uneven roads. I am truly impressed.
This car is a DSG and still, the Audi TT rear spring pads are a must to avoid reverse rake. The car sits about dead even and the travel and functionality of the suspension is excellent for a car on lowering springs only.
I hope this helps some of you with offering some more feedback on the H&R OE Sport springs!
Do you have a link for the springs?
