Suspension kit & brakes

Folks,

Lets talk now about full coilovers.

I'm thinking to get one of those sets for my proyect, the price is a little high for me but looking on ebay found a set for about USD$700.00, I'm planing buy this items sometime after jannuary next year and I wonder if any of you can help me on this.

Also I need new front rotors, so I'm thinking to upgrade to Corrado G60 rotors, will this be a bolt on upgrade, if it is I need front calipers, can't find those in Dominican Rep., any way I found the rotors "driller" for about US$115.

Please let me know so I can keep running my proyect.

PS Golf 2.0 8v 1994

GTi VR6 1995 : Black top, 9.3mm Plug wires, +4 Bosch Platinum, Upper (F/R) Tie bar, Cross Drilled Rotors (F/R), Adj. FPR, 17" Nakayama wheels, MOMO Seats with 4 points Harnesses

Sig says you have coilvers?

700$ for coilovers is a lil low. The patec are that cheep but i havent seen anythting good or bad about them. So I'm not sure about qualitty yet. Josh is getting a pair, he will let us know.
What kinda coils did you find on ebay, be very careful of buying used suspension on ebay... Look into KW, H&R, FK, Weitch, Patec, ect
Far as brakes go, I'll let Aaron take that one...

heres some brakes....because i love whoring them



The fronts are 11.3" with the 4-lug pattern. eurospecsport carries the full kit...rotors, calipers, etc.

The rear is just a drum-disc conversion also from www.eurospecsport.com Everything included.

As far as the coilovers, I have H&Rs and I love them. www.parts4vws.com stocks them for a good price. $1100 or so for the basic ones. Keep in mind that sometimes you get what you pay for. What is the brand off eBay?

Anything else, you let us know.

PTAC!

ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!

I would watch out for things like that. Plus, my H&Rs came with two wrenches to lower it. Stick to an online store for guarantees and whatnot.

As for the calipers, junkyard? Vortex classifieds?
