How It Should Have Come From The Factory.
These are the springs my VW Passat should have had all along. The ride is still comfortable...but now the handling is more in line with a sporty German sedan. Flatter cornering, quicker turn-in, and less brake dive are all welcome additions. Visually, the approximately 3/4" drop is subtle but effective. The springs themselves appear high quality and install is straightforward. AutoAnything's prices and shipping were first-rate. Very satisfied with this purchase and definitely recommend!
not what was needed
OK the tec that I talked to was very helpful and polite. But the spacer kit did nothing for me. I still had the same problem I did before ordering this kit. The problem being the the air bag bracket would not bolt to the leveling block to the rear end. It was about 1 1/2 to short. And these plastic blocks did not help solve my problem. So that is why I rated them so low.
So Far So Good
Not that hard to install. Will need TIN coated drill bits because the frame is TOUGH. Fits good and keeps S10 Xtreme pickup level when pulling trailer. Truck rides good with 10 lbs of air pressure when empty, and never had to have over 50 lbs pressure when trailer was loaded down. A good buy, and will be better with the optional compressor kit
