I used one inch, course threaded nuts and a few 7/8 washers to lift my front struts. That was all my cheapo spring compressor would allow. I can just about crawl under my car now.

This is the only car forum I have ever seen where people are talking about lifting cars...

A wagon with some BFG's, General Grabbers, or other aggressive tread patters would look pretty awesome. All you would need to do then would be to transplant the Audi AWD kit...hmmm, a true rally edition TDI?? I think I'm on to something here.

As was mentioned earlier, raising the suspension will make the OEM jack useless. You might consider a vintage, used scissor jack, like the ones I've seen on E-bay Motors where I recently purchased mine. It's actually from an Audi and has a larger base than the OEM jack. Seems to have more lift, but I have yet to try it. Stay away from the local auto parts stores.

I scrape my 01 stock jetta all the time using it for work purposes. I think i will be doing this as well. Actually ripped off the front fairing. The mk4s have very limited ground clearance.

I'm rocking a 2" lift, regular size tires, no difference in mileage. moog beef springs and 1.5" metalnerd spacers to remove the forward rake.
