EMD Auto Volkswagen MK7 / MK7.5 Golf SportWagen (FWD & AWD) Lowering Spring Kit

EMD Auto

Volkswagen Golf SportWagen on eMMOTION suspension lowering springs.

Are you looking to lower your Golf SportWagen, but are concerned with diminished ride quality? Designed with the daily driver in mind, our lowering springs will provide the improved aesthetics of a lowered vehicle, without creating the harsh, bouncy ride that is all too common with typical lowering springs.

Taking our experience on the MQB platform, along with testing on our in-house S3 and MK7 GTI, we have developed what we feel is the best lowering spring option for those wishing to utilize factory dampers. Using a linear design (similar to OEM) with unique spring rates, our lowering springs are properly matched to the factory dampers, ensuring a ride quality that is slightly stiffer than stock, but predictable in nature. 

Each spring set is 100% made in the USA exclusively for EMD Auto. The springs are made of high tensile chrome silicon and each unit is shot peened, pre-set and 100% tested to ensure all the critical dimensions and rate/loads are within tolerance. The springs are then zinc coated for corrosion resistance and finished in a gloss black powdercoat for an OEM appearance. The use of high tensile chrome silicon, as opposed to typical commercial grade chrome silicon, allows us to create a lighter spring that can sustain repeated deflection without deformation. High tensile chrome silicone will typically have thinner coil diameters that are spaced further apart, when compared to commercial chrome silicon.

"Having come from progressive springs with about the same ride height, I can certainly and immediately tell a difference in comfort and drivability." - Jon M. 

"The ride comfort is at or above stock." - Lee N.

"These springs are a must have. Better feel and handling than stock, yet more comfortable. That's a win in my book." - Harith A.

"The car sits perfect and performs like it should have from the factory." - Steve B.

"The car is more planted and settled and greatly reduced bounce/pogo at the rear over bumps." - Ian F.

"I am extremely pleased to be off my H&R's and on ED's springs." - Jon C.

Are these springs okay for a daily driver?

Yes, these springs were specifically designed for daily driven vehicles. They were designed to maintain the factory ride quality.

Will lowering springs cause my factory shocks and struts to wear out prematurely?

Our springs are a linear rate design, similar to the OEM units. As such, they will are not expected to cause additional wear on the shocks and struts. The spring heights are also designed to stay within the travel range of the factory shocks and struts to ensure longevity of the factory components.

Do I need any other items for install?

No other items are needed for install. For improved handling performance, we also recommend our rear sway bar upgrade. Due to complaints with clunking and other noises when installing with aftermarket strut mounts, we only recommend the OEM mounts.

Do I need to trim the bump stops?

On the SportWagen platform, we recommend trimming approximately 0.75" off the front bump stops and rear bump stops. You should trim from the top.

Will these fit a TDI model?

No, the TDI uses a torsion-beam rear axle so our springs will not fit that model.
