Hello all, just a few quick questions I was hoping someone could answer for me if they have a moment. So I purchased my vehicle, a 2000 mk4 golf, with lowered suspension already on it. I live on a dirt road though and in a state where road maintenence is not a high priority, and additionally I do not care for the look of lowered cars. I would like to restore the stock height, if not possibly even lift it a bit higher, to get more clearance from the road and potholes. That aluminum oil pan just gets me worried. I know there is also the possibility of adding a skid plate, but again, being in Michigan and knowing that this vehicle will be trudging through snow eventually, I just want to get it up and out of the way. The shocks and struts that are on currently aren't very obviously marked as far as the manufacturer, but they are bright red in color, leading me to believe perhaps they are Koni Reds, as those seem to be quite popular. So my first question is, if I were to leave the shocks and struts on as is, but were to replace the springs with a set of stock OEM Golf springs, would that restore the height, or do the shocks and struts themselves add to the drop? Many spring packages I've looked at refer to the amount of drop they give-- I'm looking to reverse the process. Also, assuming that new springs would help, there is a gentleman on ebay with a set of stock front and rear springs that he took off his 2011 mk6 golf with about 12,000 miles on them. Compatibility wise, if I were to buy these could I slip them on to my mk4 Golf? They are quite affordable (he's asking $85 for all 4 shipped) and it probably wouldn't be a bad investment even if they didn't raise it that much, although I'm hoping they would. Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated guys. Thanks a lot.
