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.
Hey fellas I'm a nube here but I've been trolling for a while.
I came across this thread and it was just what I was looking for to help me decide what springs to go with. I picked up a buy back 2015 Golf TDI SEL w/DSG with just 11k miles.
I ended up going with H&R, just found and ordered a set for $205 shipped! You have to love the holiday deals out there. Special thanks to witchcraftz for the crappy animated GIF..lol
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.
I felt this thread was pretty helpful when deciding what springs to get as well. ‘15 golf on the eibach set up. Stock shocks. I enjoy the ride quite a bit, little bit of rubbing but I’m running 18x8.5 +35 wheels with 245/40/18 tires. The springs ended up being much lower than advertised. About 2” actually, but I have an even fender gap.
