For new ones Rock Auto sells a variety of different makers springs for 93-99 (early 99) Jetta. Check under the 97 with the 2.0L since those were the most common, for some reason only the Moog ones are listed for the TDI cars.Hi All,
Can anyone tell me where I can source some new or used stock springs for my 1997 Jetta Tdi? The previous owner installed some lowered springs and it is causing some problems.
Thanks, I have to really look into whether I want to do this job. I agree these Tdis are worth keeping. For mine, I am planning to swap the engine into a Geo Tracker in a few years. Unfortunately, there is likely no way I am going to be able to do the project earlier. Right now, I am using the car to commute between California and Idaho and as a daily driver in Idaho.I have used the Suplex brand of rear coil springs surrounding my rear Bilstein struts on my DD 1997 Passat (now at 383,000 miles) with no issues. Price really isn't the issue, the labor is. It is a lot of work to replace rear struts on the 1997 Passat. Dismantalling the rear interior is a pain in the ass. Then again, I am now an old fart.
Depends on how much the lowering springs actually brought the car down.Another question: if I put the stock springs back on the car and leave the front springs as-is (lowered by previous owner), will the back end be jacked up too high making the car look funny?
