golf2 rear shocks

Post by Evin »

Hi Guys

i have a problem with my golf 2 suspension. It looks like my car is drop at the back and looks like a speedboat,

The shocks that i have is is about 5 years old now and only recently that i installed sub in the back
had a check it Supa Quick and shocks are still good
Now I'm not sure if its the Coil Springs or the mountings that finish

and I don't have that rubber stop on my shocks

any advice on

I want lift my car more at the back

Springs determine ride height, not shocks.
