it also is not
Still good progress!
You and those damn race lands.. And I did too but they were out of round, and brought with them a hellish vibration above 70. In New York it doesn't matter but out here in Kansas the highways come with 75 mph limits.
As far as lowering goes, I'm always cruising the forums for good used suspension. I had race lands on my jetta and the gti, but this time I want something good.
Yep, I chose (with wisdom from some helpful dudes) not to waste my money on that. I bought a dual action polisher and will eventually get around to learning paint correction. Now that I have a garage I'll be able to fix the paint for real.
No fucking racelands and no plastic dip. I like where your heads at. Keep it up
Buy nice or buy twice I always say (as of recently haha.)
Fuck the haters haha. I had racelands on my scirocco that was brutally raped daily and they were fine. Ride well handled well
People who hate them is because they are expecting 3000$ coils for 400$
Just bag it

I mean, I had my racelands for a few years and I never had any issues
I had no problems with the race lands on my jetta, but my goal with this car isn't to be low. I want a functional, comfortable ride. I'll probably go with some koni fsd's and sport springs.
The lower you go the more she likes it!
Replaced the k&n panel filter with a Mann oe filter, replaced my cabin filter, replaced my jbwelded sjp with a new OEM one. Later today I'll be installing an 034 trans mount and 034 rear diff carrier inserts.
Installed the 034 mounts and inserts today, being an 03 it was kind of a pita, but not too bad. The inserts were harder to get than the mount.
Gotta love parts cleaners!^^
034 makes it sound like getting those in is soooo easy. It's not! Liars.
They made a good difference, but also made it apparent how loose the suspension is. Pretty much every single bushing is cracked or super worn. Struts/ springs probably have 181k on them. Very tired.
Stern control arms
Or just bag it, yes, do that.
Bags just aren't practical for me. If I'm gunna bag a car it'll be a car that's worth something. This will just be a comfortable, low maintenance daily when all is said and done.
St, fk's or solowerks coilovers will get the job done nicely since you dont want to deal with raceland. I still say racelands are the best bang for the buck. They are $369 and makes sense if you wanna keep cost low. I had mk4 and B5 racelands and honestly the b5 racelands rode alot better. Im sure it was because of the double wishbone control arms that Audi has. I vote for racelands since the car has 180k already. Just my opinion.
My next car will be either a b6 or b7 s4, so I want something I can just transfer over to that. Koni fsd can be had for 599 shipped, and then springs can be found used for cheap. Then I can use the stock S4 springs and koni fsd when I move into that.
I would reconsider that decision. Jason talked me out of this a couple of times.
The b6/b7 s4's have timing chain issues. Get a b5 s4 as they are more solid and can be faster than a b6/b7 with just a tune.
I know that a lot of them do, but also a lot of them don't. I have a soft spot for b5s4's, but I have a softer spot for an awd v8 avant. At the end of the day it'll come to what's available when I'm looking to buy. There's actually been a few really clean b5s4's for sale in my area recently.
