    passat 32b lowering

    Hi, can anyone tell me if a 1988 32b passat shares any front suspension parts with other models?

    Mine has cut and shut mods on the lower suspension struts with polo 6n shocks. ( been told by previous owner)

    I'm trying to get a suspension strut threaded cap to hold shock insert in strut housing? It's a bit of a mosh mash.does anyone have one?

    Does anyone know of a better way to lower a 32b on original suspension?

    Cheers

    It is basically the same as the contemporary type 81/85 Audi 80/90 saloon and Coupe up to 86 and 88 respectively. The top cap nut is still listed as being available from a VW dealer under part number 823 412 047 for about 10.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
