Dropping a 6R Cross

Postby georgie » Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:52 am

What coilovers/springs are recommended for 6R Cross Polo's?

Are there any mods that need to be done to avoid any rubbing/scraping.

How low can you get them on a static drop while keeping them drive-able.

Pics and any other advice would be greatly appreciated :hi:

Probably the exact same as the normal 6R I would think.

Yep. What brands are the 6R guys recommending though. What trickery is involved?

But this just defeats the whole idea of a cross polo...

Are the shocks the same as the happy polo?
