The most popular spring in H&R's line-up, Sport Springs will lower your vehicle an average of 1.3-1.4 inches for a lower center of gravity, improved handling, and a more aggressive appearance. Sport springs feature a spring rate that is firmer than that of the OE Sport spring but is still comfortable enough for daily use. Sport springs are an excellent choice for street and occasional track use.
** NOTE for mk3 2.0L owners... There is a mid year change in the size of the top of the front springs. Please check to see which tops are in your car. Open the hood and look at the top of the struts. If the struts have a black plastic cap this should indicate that you have the large spring top, use 93-95 kit. If there is a round metal top with rubber around it and no plastic cap you should have the smaller spring end, use 96-99 kit.
H&R was founded by Werner Heine and Heinz Remmen in the 1970's with a simple idea in mind; with improved suspension, vehicles would have more control and better handling.
