    They're too long and the damping is different. They can be used but aren't optimal.

    Hey, new to modding festivas. Is there any major reason why you couldn't just use the original mk2 coilovers on the rear? Or is it just personal preference?

    So i contacted the seller, they said

    "The valving will make the shock a bit more firm. Solo does not offer a 4cyl spec shock any longer as everyone always like the upgrade"

    I looked up reviews of the coilover on vw fourms, and the people that did the review said they prefered them over racelands and they where running 4cyl vws.

    I decided to buy them. I figure it shouldnt make a huge difference, and i plan to do an b6t swap down the road... At that price about $270 CAD shipped to my door, who can beat that!

    The seller said they were the same exact setup as the mkii fronts. All the same modifications applied to them and they worked great!

    There's one kit out the that Nate had blow out in 6k miles just wanted to make sure it wasn't them. Those should work fine I doubt at theses prices anyone is really putting much r&d into different valving.

    I can't imagine the VR6 valving would be that different than the 4cyl GTI's valving, but I'm no expert. You might want to ask the seller how much of difference there is. Maybe they'll have some information to give you.

    Yes those are the coilovers... Any thoughts on VR6 valves? Do you think they would be any diffrent from any other mk2/3 coilovers?

    Maybe these would work? Similar to what he references.

    I found a reasonably priced set of coilovers that are front only, in the description it say "Gold Zinc Plated housing
    Lower Spring Perches
    Upper Spring seat
    Main Spring Helper springBumpstop
    Front & Rear*45-85mm (1.7-3.3") Lowering Range
    VR6 Platform Based Spring Rates and Matched Valving"

    Is there any issue with the fact that they have valving that is matched to a VR6 platform? Or are all mk2/3 coilovers pretty much the same thing? The brand is called solo werks btw
