Default show me your lowered wagons

Love my GSW, except for the 4x4 look. Show me your lowered wagons and what setup you have. and most important, how's the ride?

I'll bite. Maybe not shot at the best angle, but here is mine on H&R Sport springs and the recently installed SEL wheels. The H&R site said the Sport springs were 20% stiffer than stock and that feels perfect to me. It handles much better and the ride is firmer without being harsh. Lowered ~1.5".

I kept the stock shocks. They seem to deal with the increased spring rate just fine. I thought about swapping for some Bilsteins at the same time, but decided to try without first. Maybe when the stock shocks wear out.

Here's a before and after with the original wheels. These two photos show the actual drop a little better:

Before H&R:


After H&R:

After lowering, I've had to raise my bi-xenon lights quite a bit. Something like 4 full turns on the adjustment screw to get it correct.

And, not a GSW, but here's my Golf on VWR springs w/ Bilstein B8s. Too low for me, and the ride is just a bit too stiff for daily driving so I'm going to try out the H & Rs in hopes that the slightly added travel gives a bit more comfort. The car is ultra responsive though, just too much for daily driving.

Not my GSW but my first Mk7 TDI. Lowered on ST Coilovers. Best riding coilovers I’ve ever felt.
