Hi all, Needing some help here. Just spent most of the day today installing my Blistein B14 coilovers to my MK7 R (non-DCC) along with brand new uprated top mounts. After the installation, along with a few ups and downs on the ramp getting the car height right, the car was done! First impressions the height looked perfect and overall the drive is much better. Problems started to occur then turning the wheel full lock both ways at a stand still and when turning at low/creeping speeds. There is absolutely no noise what so ever now when going over bumps slow or fast, its just when turning at very low speeds! 🤬 The creaking and knocking is horrendous when doing this and I have no idea why it should be this bad. We took our time with the instalment and made sure everything was tighten up as it should be. The car feels a lot better at normal speeds but its only when at a stand still or going very slow and turning that I am getting this awful knocking. The car will need to get alignment some time this week which may or may not make things better, but surly the alignment can't be that off to cause this kind of noise. Any ideas what else to check or what this may be? Really annoying when you spend good money on parts and it seems to cause more problems. Many thanks.
Good afternoon, I am in the market for coilovers for my mk7 golf r. I am coming off of two different sets of lowering springs (vwr & mss) . I am tired of strut related issues and want improved handling. Majority of the reviews I read about bilstein b16 pss10's are very good, however there are some naysayers. While fewer, I have yet to read a negative review of Ohlins. I live in the northeast of the United states. I DD my R and probably do 2-4 trackdays a year. Additionally, I have the following chassis upgrades already: Superpro engine, trans,dogbone mount kit, front/rear sways bar & end links, lfca. O34 subframe insert, Tyrol deadset kit. Thank you in advance for the feedback.
I’ve just bought a 2nd hand golf r. Had it checked over by an independent vw specialist. My rear drivers side shock is leaking and he has recommended that I replace both rears. Doing a bit of a search through this site I have noticed that rear shock rattle is fairly common and some say to replace the shocks with bilstein b4 shocks. My car doesn’t have a rattle from the rear of it but I am having issues with what sounds like a faulty rear bearing. The bearings examined normally so replacing the shocks is a stepwise approach into trying to solve this other noise issue. I plan to replace the shocks, get 4 wheel alignment done, rotate Tyres and or replace the Tyres and failing this I’ll potentially replace the bearings. Looking for the bilstein ones, I can’t seem to find them for my model. Does anyone know if they are compatible? it is a 2914 5 door hatch r with dsg and does not have the dynamic chassis control. Thanks in advance for your help.
With over 400HP easily achievable on the MQB platform it’s so too easy to neglect the all-important handling. The RSS Fast-Road Setup matched with Bilstein B16 coilover kit for the MQB vehicles has been meticulously engineered over the course of 2 years with a blend of fast-road and track use. Enabling you to get the maximum enjoyment from your MQB on the open road. You will feel the car much more composed in roll, heavy acceleration and heavy braking. The result? Being able to place and hold the car in places, at speeds you never thought was possible. With all of this you would probably come to expect a harsh ride quality? Not with the combination of the RSS Fast-Road Setup and specially setup Bilstein B16 dampers. A harsh ride quality is often the combination of incorrect spring and damping rates, which thanks to our development you won’t find here. Don’t take our word for it, this is a 400HP+ MK7 Golf R IG @mikerg's feedback: “Car before was unsteady and the uplift when accelerating was ridiculous. After 250 miles, yesterday car felt unreal. Bolted on the road and taking corners with it was never this fun, it allows me to have confidence on where to place the car on the road. Ride quality is outstanding in comparison to the stock ones and taking in consideration that this coilovers are considered fast road and track ready.” For those seeking even more performance, we can also supply Powerflex bushes which allow us to further refine the geometry suspension setup. Track day junkie? We also supply a whole host of track day tested parts and special setup to optimise your MQB for the best lap times. If you are interested in optimising your MQB for fast-road or track use don’t hesitate to get in touch by dropping me a PM, calling us on 02380558636 or emailing [email protected]
