    2015 Golf TDI Highline OEM Sport Springs for Canada

    Just to add my 0.02 cents, having had the GTI front springs I wasn't very impressed with their handling on the TDI. With conversations with spring experts, my conclusion is that the GTI front springs are not meant for the weight of the TDI engine, spring ratio will be wrong. Part numbers are...

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Just to show that this setup does work for some more extreme wheel setups, here is the car riding on some 19" wheels. They are 8.5" in front and 9.5" in the rear. The tires are quite large size too. Front tires are 235/35r19 rear are 265/30r19. It only rubs a bit hitting bad bumps in the road.

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Made a crappy animated GIF showing the H&Rs vs stock GTI. It's not exact since the cars weren't in the same position but it shows that the front is a basically the same and the rear a little bit lower.

    Amazing looking car, GLWS!

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Recap: only H&R seem to make the correct springs for rear solid beam axle TDIs (North America). Don't get Eibach, DG, VWR or GTI springs to put on your TDI Golf.

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    The H&R springs are correct for the TDI whereas the VWR are incorrect, the VWR are designed for a AWD TDI Golf sitting on a IRS suspension similar to a GTI. They don't work on the North American TDIs.

    Updated with pictures of the car on h&r. Drives so much better!

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    That looks much better! I'm not surprised the ride is much better, the shocks have much more space to properly move. I also think it's great that we both have Tornado Red MK7 TDI Golfs. :)

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    I'm not sure, myself I have ordered the TT spring pads as a precaution, supposedly the VWRs are only a 1.18 drop in the rear and to my eye that would look just about perfect with a proper setup in the front.

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Did you install the H&Rs yet? If so how does it ride and how low? Did you need the TT rear pads?

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Just wanted to Post here what it looks like for quick comparison. Golf TDI on stock springs Golf TDI with DG springs (Driver Gear 1.8T springs) Golf TDI with VWR springs ( VWR31G7BA ) Golf TDI with H&R springs ( 54786-2 )

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    I checked H&R and the Golf SportWagen with beam axles uses part 54788. The Golf with beam axle uses part 54786-2 so they are indeed a different part number. I haven't see any reviews of the 54786-2 on a normal Golf. I'll take the plunge I guess and hopefully it works out. Otherwise I'll have...

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    I believe that the SW springs are a different part number than for the golf hatch. Does the SW have IRS?

    Anyone with the TDI H&Rs chime in on the ride quality?

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    I agree, what Blue Hen's car looks like is exactly what I want. I don't want coilovers but shock/spring combo, MSS makes an adjustable spring for the MK7 which might work for us TDI people too but it's $1,000 for the springs only. https://www.msskits.com/vw-streets-fully-adjustable-kit.html

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    I'm just posting up the part numbers of the Spring options I've found. If people who have them installed can post up picture of their cars, it would be great. ================================= Eibach Pro Kit: E10-15-021-04-22 (solid beam) WARNING: E10-15-021-02-22 is for a TDI with IRS Front...

    VWR on MK7 TDi = forward rake?

    Yup, here are pictures. The best visually would be DG front & VWR rear. But As I mentioned it's a little bouncy in the front. Side view with forward rake. The rear sits at stock height basically. Front wheel gap. Rear wheel gap.
