    Default Slammed Jetta

    Ok so sooner or later i am getting my coilovers and i am dropping it lowww.
    Im going to have stock wheels because i cant afford to get all that at once.
    I know i need spacers but i have heard i might need a new sway bar and all this stuff.
    What do i need? And rate the difficulty to install my self.

    You sir, create too many threads. Please make a thread in the MK4 section titled "1.8TCAM's Questions", and update it with your questions. Either that or search the site and don't forget about good olde GOOGLE. As for you're coilover question, if you're slamming it, you may need to cut your front sway bar out, roll your fenders, and get spacers. I think I'm forgetting a few things though. Slammed on those wheels will look poopy IMO.

    you may need to cut your front sway bar out
    noooooo don't cut your sway bar, just buy an aftermarket one from like H&R or Eibach for a couple hundred bucks. There is a reason the swaybar is there from the factory. You will only need to do this if you go low enough. There isn't really a set amount but it's around 1.5 or 2 inches lower.

    Gets some new wheels and tires before you go low, those wheels will look bad low

    Disagree... low before wheels, even if the stocks aren't so hot.

    look at all these noobs up in here, geez.

    lower the car, cut out the sway bar. no need for spacers, you will be fine. i ran my steelies while slammed, and i didnt rub on anything.

    also, dont worry about wheels, just spray paint them some neon color, and youll be rockin it. =D

    Make sure you have all the necessary tools before hand I didn't and the install was a back breaking experience! If you want to go real low your going to need a new sway bar I had to raise mine a bit because it was hitting.

    Yeah we know, but you can't have both. It's either one or the other.

    Sway bars are there for a reason. If you want your car to handle as good as it does, don't cut them. They make aftermarket sway bars for the lowered, but you still wont be able to be super super low.

    well you could, but you have to drop your sub frame to do it... just get an aftermarket one if you don't want to run with out it. There's companies which make ones that don't loop over the axle so you wouldn't have any issues. But even the ones which loop over have a sh*tload of clerance.

    and slamming your car just for pics and vids is a big fail imo... just sayin'.

    Lol yeah, you might as well just take the wheels off and let it sit on the frame then.

    If you are willing to spend that much, definitely go with KW.
