But they provide better control than a factory strut I assume? I'm after a good daily strut that provides better control of the VWR spring behavior than a factory strut.
Yeah, I like my VWR setup less every day. It feels like the factory struts/shocks are almost gone after 15k miles. Following, as I may be interested in B8s as well.How do you like them and how has the ride improved from factory struts? I am on VWR springs and the struts/shocks are not keeping up. Looking to correct that and want some feedback on B8s.
Dudes, don't get me wrong here, but I said from the beginning, Racingline/VWR springs
are too short for the stock strut/dampers. I was beaten for this again and again, as
nobody wanted to hear that, though I'm quite used to it, no complains.
I'm rather certain the car will feel noticeably better when you pair these springs with
proper dampers such as Bilstein B6, B8, Koni Str.t or Yellows, but the remaining wheel
travel will remain on the scarce side. The feeling of being 'underdamped' will disappear
with uprated dampers, so you're fine under normal use. Just be careful when you have
four people in your car and the boot loaded on weak roads, as that's where some wheel
travel is required. Drive a little slower and again, you're still fine with a lowered car.
Thanks!Internally on the front struts. So yes, they do come with them.
If I remember correctly the rear dampers also come with bump
stops, but not certain on this. If not, just keep the stock ones,
ideally shorten them by 15 % or so.
In any case, don't remove the oil/grease film on the piston rod
or on the sliding body of the front strut respectively. This area
requires some lubrication.
