raceland ultimos if u dont have alot to spend , FK silverline X if u do .... ive got raceland ultimos on my mk3 vr6 and the fk's on my 1.8T GLI also id suggest investing in some motor mount spacers (euroimage tuning sells them) to raise the oilpan up offa the ground and if u wanna really be on the safe side get u a mk3 vr6 steel oilpan and toss that aluminum one on ur vr in the garage for if and when u ever bust the steel one

It’s a good idea to get a new set of suspensions. However, make sure that lowering them would not affect the overall dimensions or else you will be experiencing the same horrible ride again even with the new ones.

Uhhhhh what .... I know i just woke up n all and been on nightshift the last 2 months but what the hell does that mean .

If he gets either of the 2 sets ive mentioned and new strut mounts (front n rear) his ride will be smooth as butter , thats y i recomended them . I wrecked my gti almost two yrs ago noe and my back is still messed up from it and i wont tolerate a rough riding suspension
