I got a question if this is ok?
With your lowering kit, did you flip the rear axle?
Or is there lowering kits that doesent need this operation?

Yes, that's basically what happens with the kit that is supplied. I didn't fit it myself, I had my local garage do it for just over £100 so wasn't too bad. I'm not aware of any other ways to do this

One more question.
Is this the correct way to measure struts on a caddy?

I cut 50mm and did as i show on my picture.

My new ones got an eibach 60mm with Mk6 golf GTi shocks and top mounts and looks sweet, think I'll still be going for coilovers though tbh
