Maybe useless in Kali, but people with snow or in areas with a lot of graveled and graded dirt roads can use another inch or so of clearance.

If you can't answer the op question, then don't post. See below (or above). It really ads no value to the thread. That's why this place is more enjoyable than VW Vortex.

and mountainous areas have rocks in the road....truck retreads....lower back issues...frost heaves in the north-east....blah blah.

And some roads in California absolutely suck. Every state has this issue. It's totally normal to want some more clearance for piece of mind. Some lowered cars look totally bad ass (read: Toeball, Nikshub, et al). But it's not for everybody.

The cost of a small lift versus buying a new vehicle is easy math. Which is why I don't own a sub-20mpg Mall-Rated Jeep. Or a Tiguan.

Uh, back on topic.
If an A6 is lifted, will it screw with traction controls? Metalnerd would not sell to 2003 and up A4 owners for fear of traction controls (ASR) being triggered prematurely, usually in a turn.

Will an A6 experience this is the question.

A friend of mine just inherited a machine shop (garage type, not full blown business) and I think I and going to ask him to help me w/ a 1" lift (just spacers) and see what happens.

Also, people are probably getting rid of Tig springs on Vortex. You need to find non-sport, not 4motion. Just front wheel drive.

So is this a CONFIRMED solution?

No. Somebody with ETKA should chime in. I am only willing to do spacers at the moment. Just need to find time to get the right measurements.

Tiggy ang MK6 Jetta/Golf share parts b/c of similar platform dimensions.

^^^want...

Now if VWoA would get their heads out of their tails and produce an All-road TDI Sportwagen, I'd be ordering it as soon as it came out.

Hey I love the idea of a AWD Jetta TDI.
Like the monster SportsWagen, that would be the Mudder of all JSW's.

All right folks, been doing some hunting but the budget is weak but for those who want to forge ahead and show us how.
Came across this please take a look and enlighten the rest of us while lifting your vehicle.
One question looms is the sports wagon of the same suspension design as the jetta?
The info I put in for the selection was Jetta as they did not have a sportswagon as an option.

I was loosely considering this, then after bottoming out my car numerous times at a remote camping and backing area I frequent I decided I must. I'll be watching to see what people come up with . I'm not sure I'm adventurous enough to be the first to try considering I have no knowledge of suspension except the basics of how they work.

+1 on the AWD sportwagen!

haha, I don't even have my Sportwagon yet and I was wondering if this is possible. I'm coming from an Outback and drive a lot into snowstorms to go skiing. I was thinking it would be nice to have a little more clearance.

I was thinking coilovers might work i put a jeep tj factory spacer under my rear coils and added airbags to keep rear from squating with bike rack and gear. Id like to lift it three inches. I to came from an outback and think clearance on stock jsw is way to low. My option raised it up over an inch in rear. What about adjudtable sus like vw toureg has.

It's too bad Subaru is holding off getting that diesel engine over here. I'd go back to them if it ever makes it to the US.

I'm working on getting a set of Tiguan springs and I'll give them a try in the spring when I'm getting back onto logging roads. I expect that I'll find the stock shocks to be limited in maximum extension and I'll have to look at whether Tig shocks will fit.

And yes, I know, I should have bought a Tiguan...and VW should have sold a Tiguan TDI.

I was thinking OK, that will work the other way too, I could put Tiguan springs on my Golf, however after looking closer, I think it would lift it TOO much, if it even worked at all.

The weight is not really a big deal as a 4 Door GOLF TDI only weighs about 379 lbs less than a 2WD Tiguan with a Petrol Motor.

I like what this guy did:


... But I don't want to go to this extent, although I REALLY Love this! Especially on the rough roads I drive, this would be awesome. Any lowered car would be demolished trying to drive on these roads.

Maybe I should just build a buggy & put a TDI engine in it.
Is there a website or URL to go with this photo ?
