They are not easy to find here, but I have a set of Sachs 996573 springs on the rear of our wagon. They are basically the VW "5 Green Towing" springs. I went with the Moog front springs. It did raise the ride height a bit but I like it and the handling is as good or maybe better than the old springs. Don't get me wrong, its not a Mini, but then what else is? What I really like is you can load 200+ pounds in the back and it still rides well, very little sag. They cost quite a bit more than the Moog springs, but may be worth it if you carry heavy loads. You can see my car here: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=366639Rock Auto lists the MOOGs for a wagon, so I trusted it. The old springs were sold to another TDI club member for his Golf. I am keeping my eye open for options. If you see anything, let me know.
On my VR6 Kit (MGR1003-B) the Part Numbers are as follows:
Strut Accessory Kit Front (Sealed Box): MG11212
Shock Accessory Kit Rear (Sealed Box): MG21901
My kit came with the Rear Shock Upper Mounts but not the Four Stretch bolts for the Upper Mounts. If you look at the parts picture for the kit at Blauparts the four bolts aren't shown.
I ordered the four bolts from Roseland Technical Services. The part number is: N 910 661 01
I'm glad I could helpHi SGSW,
Thanks for your reply!
The parts # you supplied below are identical to the parts # on both the i4 & v6 kits I received. Does that mean BLAU's kit does not distinguish between different engines? If that's so then those who ordered i4 kits do not have to regret not ordering the v6 kit afterall.
Yes, the kit does not include rear top mount bolts. A dealer parts guy told me last time I need a total of 8, which is non-sense, but I bought them anyway so I've 4 spare already.
I'm glad I could help
Are the part numbers the same for the Struts & Shocks or only the Accessory kits?
