polo coilovers?

Recommended Posts

i have a set of rear mk2 golf coilover for my mk3 polo and they fit alright it just they raise the car up higher than stardard and with the helper spring out and them srewed right to the bottom there sitting at about stardard hight and there would be no movement in the shock at all. so me and a few friends were thinking is the anyway that the coilover could be striped down and the body of the shock be shorted aswell as the piston filled up with oil again and resealed makeing the hole unit shorter? has anybody ever heard of this being done? and would you know anyone that would be up for doing it? any help would be great thanks martin

Or why dont you just buy coilovers for the polo!? what you're talking about doing would cost a fortune - and i doubt theres anybody with the equipment to be doing it considering they are pressurised!!

You would still be better buying a new set. As said before, by the time you finish modifying it would be more hassle than its worth. I can supply you a brand new set of coil-overs (front + rear) for the car with up to 80mm drop for about £209.00 all-in. Bolt them in and you're done no messing.

They wont be for a MK3 they'll be for a 6n! MK3 ones cost well over £500 cause of that stupid front strut/hub assembly!

You can get lowered springs and short shocks for the front and back of your Polo from Phil Jackson Tuning who is a site sponsor on Club Forum. We fitted an 80/60 kit to our Mk2 Polo Breadvan, pics below. The rears are a doddle to fit but the fronts are a right faff. The kit we fited was around the £180 delivered. Check out his ad. in the sponsors section on Club Polo Forum P7120026.jpgP7120032.jpgP7120035.jpg
