With spacers and stock suspension my rear has 3 finger gap. Front 3 1/2.
what is your rear and front finger gap with B8’s, DG’s, TT’s?
I got weird Hankook 225/35-18 with stock suspension at 2.5" gap, switched to DG springs and MPS4S 235/40-18 --> 1.5" gap.

After first installing the new suspension it was similar to stock, but about 3 in front and 3 1/2 in rear. This is in the universal fingers measurement, not inches.

Just checked now while I was giving it a wash, it's 2 in front and 2 1/2 in the rear. Have to remember it's only ~5/8" drop approx.

So you got 5/8” drop after they settled?

My shop wasn’t able to do my suspension due to our differing time tables. So now I am having VW do it. Everyone agrees that I should DEFINITELY switch to B8’s paired with DG’s over stock struts and shocks + DG’s correct?

you got 15mm front & 20mm rear spacers with those tires?

I need to replace my rear tires and really don't want bad rubbing on the fender with 235 tires. Heard the 4S run kinda big..

no, 10 and 15.
4S is wider than most but you won't rub in the rear period.
