  1. Hello,

    I’ve found your webpage to be very helpful.
    I’m currently updating a 2007 GTI fsi with 50,400mi.
    I’ve got a bad front right strut, which is being masked by the swaybar.

    Is there no difference at all between the stock Mk6 & Mk5 Swaybars, Shocks & Struts, & Springs?

    I was thinking about the Driver Gear Springs to lower 3/4″, but no lower. (I’m located in Northern Ohio, with rough roads).
    I’m currently replacing my motor & transm. mounts. Currently running BFI Transm. insert stg1, Neuspeed Dogbone Insert, & looking for OEM appearance Motor Side mount.

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

  2. Hey Michael, glad you’re enjoying the site.

    I originally thought there might have been a difference between the suspensions from the two cars, but further research and anecdotal evidence from the forums suggests that they are exactly the same. I am not even sure if the rear sway bar is larger than the one found on the MKV cars. There are articles floating around the internet that state it is slightly larger, but measurements on the forums are showing otherwise or are inconclusive. As far as I know, the two suspensions are the same.

    The Driver Gear springs are highly regarded if you want to maintain a good ride height with improved handling. Pair them with a set of performance shocks like the Koni Yellows and you have an excellent combination.

    An OEM looking side mount might be difficult to find. You do not want to consider the BSH side mount? The BSH dogbone mount is also a nice upgrade over the insert alone. I ran the insert alone and then the dogbone mount with the insert. The mount and insert combination feels much better.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Thanks for posting this information. I have an 07 GTi with some mods on it. I found your page after this deep freeze in MD, froze my Catch can to the point where the car sucked all its oil out and down the exhaust it took 20 miles to do that. I wanted to see about going back to stock to prevent this from happening again. I like your clean lay out and in depth info. Thanks.
