It might be more audible but I am very conscious of it right now. It absorbs very well, and you don't feel it through the steering. Back end has great recovery as well but is louder than stock.

Thanks for the write up, I think this is the ONLY review of this kit on the world wide webs.
New tires yet? Interested to hear more, see more pics of this lift on your WK2.

Thanks guys, the kit is great. I have put several miles on the kit and am very happy. I have confidence in the handeling again. Body roll is minimal and feels more like it is flattening into curves. The dampners perform very well. The downside is I can not decide if I am doing wheels and tires or just tires.

I found a set of rubi take off wheels and they were going to put whatever tires on I wanted. Also priced some twentys . I just need to decide b4 winter. I just can't pull the trigger until I know sure.

Re: Eibach pro lift install

Sorry havent been on for the winter. Been crazy busy. Still have not pulled the trigger on wheels yet. Lift performed better than expected all winter. Loving the ride, gas mileage did take a punch.

Right now i am 99 percent sure im going srt spider monkey 20s on bf goodrich k.o.2s. Just got my black grill and its going on tomorrow.
