1Polo / Audi up to 8/97, use spring cup No. 861414113 B.
2Audi 80 4-Cylinder up to Chassis-No. 8192278802. Use cylindrical front springs. These are available on request.
3On models up to year 12/95 the rubber-pads from models 1/96-up have to be used
4BMW 7 series, E23 from 9/76, diameter for front and rear springs need to be checked. These differ according to engine and level of equipment:
Front: 174, 180, 190mm; Rear 114, 125mm (all dimensions in mm)
5For Vehicles fitted with big dia. wheels use rubber pad "4 point" on front axle. Restrict steering wheel lock if necessary.
6Height adjustableat the front axle only
7Vehicles with high specifications which increase front axle load should use stronger front springs.
8MB 190 E 2,3/16V. Due to higher engine weight and original equipment with self levelling system on rear axle, stiffer front and shorter rear springs
will be supplied. Readjust levelling system.
9Recommended only for vehicles with few extras that put no extra load on the axle (i.e. not with Automatic Gearbox, Air Condition).
10Delivery includes only 2 front axle springs (VW-Bus, MB-M-Class, Ford Maverick, Mitsubishi Pajero, Nissan Terrano,Opel Frontera only 2 rear axle springs).
11In order to achieve the indicated lowering the standard rubber pads should be exchanged if necessary (size 1-4). For Mercedes W 203
(part no. 31004-1) this refers to the rear axle only.
12Vehicles fitted with BMW M-Technic, MB-Sportsline, Audi Sportsuspension etc. will show less lowering as they are already factory lowered.
13With standard wheel/tyre combination and some aluminium wheels wheel spacers are required.
14Ascona C, Monza-Senator, Sierra Salon, Sierra Estate. For these vehicles cylindrical springs are available on request.
15We do not recommend these springs for Golf I Convertible, Diesel. If fitted to Golf I GTI, please ensure that only new shock absorbers are used.
16Vehicles with large front spring cups (partly) also require additional Original-VW-Parts. Please confirm when ordering.
17Adjustable suspension kit is height adjustable within the dimensions as specified in the TÜV-report.
18Attention: Rasp off the protrusion of the front axle washer or use new OE washer with round bore. Properly tie up the shock absorber wiring after installing
the connectors. After fitment of the suspension the controller (OE-ECU) must be reprogrammed (to the status of models without PASM)!!!
19The locking ringfor the struct fixation can not be taken apart non-destructive. It has to be replaced by a new one., Opel/GM part no. 24402155.
20For vehicles with factory mounted trailer coupling we recommend a stronger rear spring ( 29749-3 / 29749-4).
21Golf / Scirocco up to 8/97 use OE spring cup no. 171412341 A.
22Cup-Kit shock absorbers: Use OE bump-stop, spring-cup and dust cover if not co-packed.
Check good condition of these items prior to fitment, exchange if in doubt.
23Send in front strut housings without wheel bearings, ABS brackets, cartridges etc. Damaged strut housings will be either rejected or repaired for
extra charge if possible. In case of in advance delivery by H&R a deposit between 205 and 525,- € per strut will be required.
24Cars equipped with rough road suspension (OE-part) are lowered approx. 15-20 mm more as they are higher in OE condition.
25Not suitable for vehicles with factory fitted sport suspension.
26On vehicles based on the VW Golf IV platform (VW Golf/Bora/Beetle, Seat Leon/Toledo, Skoda Octavia) from a lowering of appr. 30 mm onwards a contact
between driveshaft and anti-roll bar can occur. In Case of contact the H&R anti-roll bar 33525-1 must be fitted.
This anti-roll bar is mandatory from a lowering of 35 mm onwards (f.e. for Cup Kit and coil over suspensions).
27Vehicles fitted with load dependant brake control require separate TÜV approval despite of ABE (In countries where TÜV or the like is required).
In any case set brake control to requiered level after lowering!
32Depending on engine, gearbox/transmission, equipment and vehicle tolerances lowering may differ from the values given.
33Please note before purchase: This suspension is a very low version! Customer and/or workshop is responsible for clearance, necessary work
and/or additional other modifications/changes.
This rework and/or arising cost is not covered by H&R.
34Lowering beyond the dimensions given in the TÜV approval may lead to contact of the driveshaft with the chassis.
Any resulting damage
35OE torsion bars need to be adjusted to lower the vehicle.
38Also for vehicles with automatic gearbox and/or air conditioning.
39Golf III FA-spring cups to be exchanged. Please use OE VW-parts.
Basis Suspension 80 mm - original VW part no. 191.412.341
Plus Suspension 80 mm - original VW part no. 1H0.412.341

40For these vehicles we recommend the use of sport dampers. These are also available from H&R.
41In the case of ordering complete struts these are only for 2.0 L 16 V, with wheel bearings dia. 72 mm and ABS brackets. Vehicles with bigger or
smaller wheel bearings (i.E. wheel bearing dia. 64 mm, 66 mm, 74 mm) struts have to be sent in in advance.
42In the case of ordering complete struts, these are only for Polo B. However, they can also be used for Polo A.
Send in Polo B struts only to get back deposit.
43For proper function of the suspension the original rear torsion bar suspension must be removed.
A report of sufficient strength of the modified rear suspension has been performed.
44Send in existing front and rear struts without wheel bearings and other attachments. Refer also to note no. 23!
45In case of ordering complete struts we need additional information:
a) struts "with" or "without" stabilizer holder
b) bore diameter at the brackets: 12 mm or 14 mm
48The sway bar link on the front axle has to be shortened by 60 mm or the sway bar link OE Toyota-part no. 4883017050 has to be fitted.
49Use rear upper spring-pad no. 4D0-512-297-6 if not OE fitted .
50Front axle - Only if the distance of the bottom fastening point bracket (center of the hole) up to the centre line of the strut housing = 56 mm
AND: If the distance of both fastening holes in the bracket = 54 mm ( center of the hole).
Take these dimensions carefully from the original strut!
51Front axle - Only if the distance of the bottom fastening point bracket (center of the hole) up to the centre line of the strut housing = 61 mm
AND: If the distance of both fastening holes in the bracket = 52 mm ( center of the hole).
Take these dimensions carefully from the original strut!
52Front axle - Only if the distance of the bottom fastening point bracket (center of the hole) up to the centre line of the strut housing = 64 mm
AND: If the distance of both fastening holes in the bracket = 54 mm ( center of the hole).
Take these dimensions carefully from the original strut!
55When fitting H&R stabilizers use OE mounting parts if not co-packed. Check that these parts are in a like-new condition; renew them in case they are not.
56This stabilizer set - including two sway bar links - is for use with coil-over 29 325-1 only and must be used for lowering beyond approx. 50 mm to
achieve sufficient freedom of motion between driveshaft and stabilizer.
57Cut out front inner plastic wheel house for sufficient freedom of motion
58This stabilizer set may only be used (and is TÜV approved) with coil-over suspension. It is not allowed to use it with OE suspension, spring set or other suspension.
59When fitting rear axle stabilizers together with non OE exhaust systems packaging problems might arise. A contact between stabilizer and exhaust is
possible. This has to be checked prior to fitment and solved prior to first driving.
60FA stabilizer may also be used without rear stabilizer. In this case vehicle might tend to understeer.
61For cars BMW E30 without OE-rear axle stabilizer the following original BMW spare parts are needed for mounting the H&R stabilizer (2 of each)
