Hello WK people
Hoping someone can shed some light on this topic that has me a little confused.
Bilstein 5100 series shocks are now avail for WK2s and I have a question - hoping someone can answer this.
If we look at the Bilstein 5100 series front shocks now available for the WK2 they have grooves allowing from .4" all the way up to 1.75" of lift via whichever circlip groove the user selects for the spring seat
My question is this: If I am using a 5100 series shock in the front, at say... the lowest setting (yielding a .4" overall lift) IN UNISON with a Eibach Lift Spring that in itself yields a 2" lift.... would the overall lift equate to simply 2.4" ??? Also part 2 of this question - would that shock only be designed to run the OEM spring or is an aftermarket spring totally ok to run in that?
Here is the PDF manual on this part: http://cart.bilsteinus.com/pdfs/E4-WM5-Y447A00.pdf

(again this for the WK2)
