    Too tall

    My 2012 AWD is too tall to fit in the car stacker, needs to be lowered about 5cm.

    Who sells suspension to suit? All the aftermarket springs only go down 3cm at best.

    I prefer spring/shock combo not coilovers because good coilovers cost an arm and a leg.

    Thanks

    Put Passat shocks and springs in. If the front is still not low enough, use the Passat strut tops too.

    Which model Passat?

    I've heard MK6 Golf R springs/shocks go straight in and are an improvement in handling as well as lowering the car.

    Makes sense - kind of like how people with Subaru Foresters put WRX struts and springs in to lower it a decent amount.
