Overall photos of the completed project and information on the front would be helpful as I am very interested in replacing the springs on my 2015 Golf TDI wagon later this summer.

I thought this was a little expensive.

Hi Robert

Labor to install those springs would be $750.00. I'd also highly recommend an alignment after installing them, as changing ride height would change the alignment, which would run an additional $100.00.

Keep in mind that by changing the ride height, you're going outside of the manufacturers spec, and it might not be possible to get the alignment 100%. Our shop would get it as close as possible, but sometimes additional parts are necessary to get it perfect.

For all 4 springs.

Thanks! - Ben
Is that all 4 springs or just rear? If all 4, I don't think its that outta this world price. I'm sure you could find it cheaper. I saw a facebook live stream of a guy do a front spring change out in 15 min on a GTI on a dare.

If it was just the rear, I wouldn't even respond.

I still love how there are ZERO pictures of the rear springs installed except a fender shot, WTH??? Lets see the rake!!!

Corey, any more photos or information the front? Overall photos, including the under the car, and summary of the front lift & alignment result would sure be helpful.

LABOR to install spring? It's a 30min job that pretty much anybody can do.
Please leave your man card at the exit.

30 min job to R/R two front struts, change out springs, then go back to do the rears?

30 min for rears only if you have the car on the lift sure.

Dream on. It may be a quick job if you have the right equipment and lots of experience. It is not so quick and easy if you are working in your driveway with limited tools and experience. I once spent almost an entire day replacing springs and shocks on a car. I had to do it in my driveway which was not even level. I had to do one wheel at a time so I could keep chocks under the other three. It cost me 2 13mm Craftsman sockets (a bolt that did not want to come loose), many sore muscles, and several bloody knuckles. A 30 minute job - HA - funny joke.

Also, you can feel free to leave your insults at the exit.

Have Fun!

Don

Agreed, the rears are tough to get compressors on with the DEF tank in the way. The fronts take time too with how heavy the knuckle is. It took me almost a full day (working leisurely) to do springs the first time, then maybe only a few hours to go back and change shocks when I wasn't happy with the ride with just VWR springs on stock shocks.

What shocks did you go with? I put VWRs on my GTI and am very unhappy with the ride with stock dampers. Rides like a Radio Flyer.

Bilstein B8s, very stiff ride which is why I picked up driver gear springs to see if they'll fit, and raise/soften the ride a little. Bilstein B6 would be a softer shock as well.
