As above I wouldnt have spax springs on my car again. It was like having four scaffolding poles at each corner of the car with them on (PeteG40's words). I swapped the springs and it was loads better. If you were going to pay £309 for the spax I believe the H&R is only about £350 online. Cant remember where though, get googling!

Again, I bought a Spax kit many moons ago and wasn't happy with it. Took a bit of effort but I managed to get a refund from Halfords for the springs as they were too hard and too low, I kept the adjustable dampers and bought some Eibach springs instead. Much better, the suspension actually worked then!

Been looking at the suspension also.

Are these ok or are they a bit of an unknown make.

im just trying to stick to a budget but without being cheap, and do they come as a complete unit with the hub/bearing housing at the bottom.

Hi
I am also looking for a new set of coil-overs. The 4 mentioned above all state a 30% increase in stiffness, this is for a standard Polo. As the G40 is already 20% stiffer would these kits just increase 10%. Doesn't really seem worth it to me.
Thanks Duncan
