Which brand rear springs?
« on: December 03, 2018, 09:49:47 AM »
One of the rear coil springs is broken on my ed30. It has standard suspension and I'll be leaving it standard.

Should I stick with genuine VW springs at £85 a spring or go for Bilstein, Sachs, Eibach or other?

Thanks

Sachs are the OEM supplier I believe so going with them should be ok.

Thank you for your replies. I'd nornally always sitck with genuine parts but if they have failed after just 75k miles I don't think much of their quality.

Genuine springs are coming in at £85 each and Sachs are £40 each.

I’m the same, genuine when possible but sometimes you have to weigh up the pros and cons with certain parts! Half the price for Sachs is a no brainier imo
