Hi guys

I have a question regarding my coilovers. I have a ek4 vti with miester r crd + coilovers. The previous owner of this car has had it corner weighted and it's quite low.

If I was to adjust the height of the coilovers would that have an effect anything? Like would I need to get my car cover weighted again.

Also there is slight camber on the car, would adjusting that have an effect on the corner weighting.

Thanks I'm advance guys.

Yes that would affect the corner weighting and change the setup of the car as you're changing the alignment. For a road car corner weighting is a bit over the top and unneeded unless maybe you do some track time too, or just wanna play around with car geometry

Okay mate and nope no track time at the moment. But maybe in the future.

This car is basically my weekend car, only when the weather is dry it will come out.

The previous owner did used to go on track now an again.

Ah okay fair enough then mate! I'm sure it'd be fine to adjust the ride height etc if you're just using it on the road and not as a track car etc. :)
