They fit and I use them. They will, however, rub *slightly* on the inside
all around, removing the undercoating. Who needs it in the summer,
anyways, eh? Also, they will rub on the passenger front feder lip in
*tight* left corners. Basically what happens there is the fender lip sits
down onto the treadface of the tire, rubbing away a ~1/8" wide strip of
paint...BFD, just touch it up in the rainy/winter months.
These observations were made with '95 GTI-VR6 running 225/50-15 R1's on
the stock wheels. Car was equipped with SPAX 24-ways and 60mm drop with
Shine Racing rear sway bar and Autotech rear stress bar.
This weekend, said car was given a Ground-Control conversion on the SPAX
24-ways with 400-lb front and 300-lb rear springs. Ride is firmer than
with the SPAX springs. Some(my fiancee) might say nauseating over
interstate dips. I don't care, though...my car, and I like it. Body roll
is greatly reduced(by half) from SPAX/Shine level, which was already very
small. Dive and squat are now nearly zero. I will give a full report
after the McKamey school this weekend.
Has anyone out there with the Shine setup actually disconnected their
front sway bar as recommended? If so, e-mail me with your feedback, as I
am considering doing that this week before the school.
