umm, my Eibach are 40mms lower and personnally I think that is low enough, however....... I have heard from a couple of Club Audi people that the Weitec are good quality.
IIRC Koni used to do them, or maybe just a complete kit, but no longer available according to Koni UK!

I emailed Motorsport world last month twice and never got no reply. So I rang them and asked them about the Weitec's for type 81. They told me that they are available but will take 4-5 weeks to arrive.

I had to wait about 4 weeks for my Koni's to arrive from them.
Don't think they keep them on the shelves so it maybe that they are made to order?

Default Making your own coilovers???

Has anyone tried making their own coilovers using the kits from Demon tweeks, if so how do you know what springs to use?? Also seeing as the idea is to lower the car potentially 60 -100mm do you need to use shorter inserts? and if that is the case - which inserts and what do I ask for??
I have the skills to convert them I am just missing the understanding, can someone help??

Also while I'm doing my homework - I'm starting to look at upgrading the brakes on my early GT5S. The rear has drum brakes either side of the beam, I'm sure I read somewhere on here MK2 Golf GTI disk brakes with 4x100 stud pattern will fit my beam - Is this true?? Please can someone help with this matter too??

Hi

I have been thinking about doing this, yes you will need shorter inserts.
Have a look on venom motorsports web site, they list all sorts of suspension from different manufactures.

Springs are tricky, I think I read somewhere 8" to 10" for the length, the rates are the hardest bit I think to work out, maybe 280lbs/in to 350lbs/in for road/track day cars, might be worth asking Demon Tweeks for advice as I may be out.

Compbrake also supply coilover kits and top mounts.
