Hi, I just bought my 03 vr6 gti. I really want to lower it with just springs, I have read that lowering springs screw up shocks and struts but I have receipts from the previous owner, it has brand new OEM struts/shocks, only like 10k on them. so would it be ok to do like a 2in drop?

it will kill them quicker, but you should be fine. Try searching too, there are a zillion threads on this and similar topics.

The only reason they ride worse then stock is when you slam your car to the ground and leave no suspension travel. if you're looking for a moderate drop like mine, youll be ok. Alittle more stiff but they're not as bad as people make them out to be. Racelands also releasing an adjustable set of coilovers for our cars soon from what Ive heard and seen. I have had my racelands for about 20k and love them still. Rough, yes but any coilover will be more rough than a stock suspension.
