    Apex 35mm Lowering Springs & Shocks Suspension?
    im looking to purchase these as my original coilover plan has worried me due to the sump on the tdi and the bouncey ride im hearing about?
    i dont want to be spending silly money on them either and these shocks/springs seem a good price over blistein ones
    its purely for looks and driveability

    Hi ToleDan

    Have you changed your suspension to the Apex one? Im about to do some upgrades on my Toledo but the low sump worries me too. I was thinking to lower it only with 30mm and dont want to use coilovers.

    Cheers

    I've got mine pretty low on coilovers touch wood in 2-3 years never scrapped anything but occasional subframe on big humps

    That's jom coilovers

    I'd go coilovers every time because your ride height is optional then go as heigh or low within reason
    Also remember your original suspension has aged and dropped over the years so 30 mm won't be much lower if any than where it is now in my opinion

    Thanks spudboy6
    How do you find the ride comfort with these? I`ve read comments they are much stiffer than a shock&spring combo. Its a really good option that you can adjust the height,but don't want to lose the comfort too much. Have you changed the front and rear top mounts too with the coilovers? Thanks
    Your car is spot on btw ;)
