So my little sister has gotten her first car a 02 Jetta 2.0L Sedan (Can't remember if its a GL or GLS) with ~132,000 miles but its so low to the ground that the bumper scrapes hard and has in fact been partially ripped off on our driveways curb.

So I am looking to lift the car a little bit nothing much only 2-3 inches at most, enough to clear the bulk of the curbs in our area.

The Questions:
Am I looking at custom springs or large spacers to do this?
Are there any brands that you guys would recommend?

On a another matter would doing this allow her to fit a 225/75R16 tire with no rubbing at full lock?

Thanks for anything you can give me, I know Ford trucks but I am new to VW so I not sure just what to expect.

Not a scam the guy is local to me. He sponsors alot of show for us. He makes the products in house. You won't get much more lift out of these cars. Pair up his lift kit with some wagon springs .

i can only imagine the destruction that would happen with this same thread on vortex. i dont know if you can go much higher than 2" on these cars. VW does make taller springs (the same thing miller mentioned on ecs)

^Local guy has one of those. It's nice to see at the local shows I get to throughout the year. Always makes me want one.

Dean always made me laugh with this one.

Thanks for the responses guys we will likely be doing the ECS spring route and have a local shop make a spacer to boot just to avoid all the extra paperwork. I just wish the curbs in my area weren't so freaking high and aggressive its not uncommon to see undercarriage damage on most cars around here.
