Advice on lupo gti lowering suspension

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi guys and girls,

I've recently bought a completely stock lupo gti so you can imagine I have a to do list... lol. 

First things first, it needs to be lower. As I'm new to the car scene I'm kind of clueless about what suspension to go for. 

I don't want to slam it as I live in Kirklees and the roads are horrendous, it just needs to o be a little lower, maybe an inch or so. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

thanks

Just leave it standard. You'll thank me later. Unless it's a jap import, then put it on jom's....

There's no way I can leave it man! It's riding so high, with loads of body roll. Even my mums standard Audi A3 is lower 😂

I went for KW V1's last year and can't fault them really.

Whatever you do, be sure to buy a good kit (springs and dampers) before wasting money on cheap (and bad quality) coilovers.

I ran AP coilovers for 3 years, not bad for the money but a bit harsh on our roads.

Recently changed to BC's, I run these on the softest damping setting and what a differenfe compared to the AP's! The ride and handling has improved massively.

What's your budget for the suspension?

The only option would be lowering springs or one of the budget coilover kits really.
