VW Golf GTI on Air Suspension

June 2010 issue, with a step-by-step guide on how to do it. We're currently

How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.
