We're pleased to release our new Golf mk8 R Sport Springs after many months of development on road and track. As with all our Sport Springs, these re-engineered, progressive-rate and slightly shorter Sport Springs lower the R model by 20-25mm in order to preserve the wheel travel needed for perfect ride & handling.
All meaning that your Golf mk8 R will still ride beautifully yet with a noticeably more dynamic handling edge, plus of course the perfect ride-height. In other words, just how it should have come from the factory.
The Sport Springs are developed to be fully compatible with cars fitted with Volkswagen’s switchable DCC (adjustable chassis control) dampers.
RacingLine’s Sport Springs are high quality, European-made springs, from the same factory that produces many of the OEM springs.
RacingLine’s extensive development program has specified progressive rate springs to preserve the Golf 8R's ride quality in normal use, but then stiffen the rates at the ends of the travel. This progressive-rate spring construction means the spring rate in the middle of travel is very similar to standard. It's only towards the end of the spring's travel (so, when braking or cornering hard) that RacingLine have engineered the spring to stiffen up. It's this progressive-rate spring design that is the secret to such good ride quality combined with dynamic performance.
