Coilover Conversion

Mar 26, 2009 update on VWguyBruce's 1986 Volkswagen Jetta GLi

Purchased Ebay coilovers from a fellow GRMer. Finally had time to install them. They turned out pretty good. I’m likely going to install 600ish rear springs and remove the rear bar. I cut the front spring perches just above the weld so I can reinstall them later if need be. The welds hold the coilover sleeves pretty well. In the rear I only removed the spring perches and left the washer they rest on.
