Ok i know i might get slated but i'm all new to this lol

Basically i want to lower my Mk7 Polo, not to sure by how much but i'm just looking for some advice. Is it worth buying new shocks and springs? Or do i just get the springs? I'm not looking to spend loads, probly 200-250 but then again i don't really know what i'm looking for lol

Any help much appreciated, thanks Smile

venom do some budget kits - i can recomend the venom own brand shocks and springs through expereince 190 - but the also have supersport which are even cheaper 150..

at venom you will get discount if you say you belong to some online clubs - best to find out which as 10% is after all 10%

u shud just get a coilpoverset, u cant go wrong 4 200 quid, theyr all the same 30% stiifer springs, 30% stiffer dampers adjustable from 20-120 mm nd then happy days , just mke sure u get um thts rust proof


and the difference betwween jom nd koni is
1. the price
2.adjustsable rebound and dapening (only necessary for track useage )

Yeh cheapest so far is 375 on Venom by Supersport, but i'll keep looking. Would probly work out better just to spend a little more and get coilovers.

ye, best to get adjustable coilovers, cus u might not be happy with the ride height when u get set springs,, i gt 35 on my mk4 befre it it was simply nt enough,

plus with adjustables wen u take it to a show u can have the weels suspended in the air (figure of speach lol )

Got a lot to do and learn before i'm anywhere near a show lol

http://www.venommotorsport.com/manufacturer_product.php?manufacturer=Supersport&category=suspension&product=Coilovers&make=VW&model=Polo%20Mk%207

Lookin at them, seem pretty good to me. Only other ones that looked appealing were 40 quid dearer but had a 2 year warranty. Not sure if there rustproof or not but i might give um a ring see if i can get any type of discount Smile

they wont be "rust-proof" but will have an eleco plate prob js500 which is nickle...

you can buy stainless ones for mega bucks - id personally just cover any plated steel bodies in waxoyl as soon as you get them...

for 300 budget id be looking at medium to high end shocks and springs as opposed to low end coilovers as you do get what you pay for.....

if your tight as i say above the 55mm kit from venom for the mk2 was ideal and lasted ages.

Yeh only problem with gettin fixed shocks and springs is i'm not sure how low i want to go so that's why the coilovers seem like a good option atm, i'll have to think about it
