No.

You'll need new arms to get the alignment in spec and you'll also need custom shock absorbers made because of how much lower the aggressive drop is.

You have to remember those springs are made for the SRT not regular wk2's. The dampers on the SRT are made for a lower ride height to begin with and much more heavy duty than anything out for WK2's.

Even with the mid drop springs you still need aftermarket shocks all around. Otherwise your factory ones will blow out within a month

It'll cost you over 2 grand for the aggressive drop in the end

Road magnet mid drop springs because you can still get them into alignment unlike the aggressive which need more parts to get into spec and a set of bilstein front and rear shocks.

Or eibach pro dampers shocks your choice
