Emmanuele Design “eMMOTION” Lowering Spring Kit
Are you looking to lower your Volkswagen MK7 Golf R, but are concerned with diminished ride quality? Designed with the daily driver in mind, eMMOTION lowering springs by Emmanuele Design will provide the improved aesthetics of a lowered vehicle, without creating the harsh, bouncy ride that is all too common with typical lowering springs.
Taking their experience on the MQB platform, along with testing in-house on an S3 and MK7 GTI, ED have developed the best lowering spring option for those wishing to utilise factory dampers. Using a linear design (similar to OEM) with unique spring rates, ED lowering springs are properly matched to the factory dampers, ensuring a ride quality that is slightly stiffer than stock, but predictable in nature.
- Improved aesthetics
- Reduced body roll when compared to the stock springs
- More planted chassis
- Reduced ‘bounciness’
- Made in USA in an ISO certified facility
- Compatible with Magnetic Ride Control
- Linear Design for Improved Ride Quality
- Powder Coated Black For OEM Appearance
- Includes rear adapter pad for positive rake option
Each spring set is 100% made in the USA exclusively for Emmanuele Design. The springs are made of high tensile chrome silicon and each unit is shot peened, pre-set and 100% tested to insure all the critical dimensions and rate/loads are within tolerance. The springs are then powder coated with a stealth black finish for an OEM appearance. The use of high tensile chrome silicon, as opposed to typical commercial grade chrome silicon, allows ED to create a lighter spring that can sustain repeated deflection without deformation. High tensile chrome silicone will typically have thinner coil diameters that are spaced further apart, when compared to commercial chrome silicon.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Are these springs compatible with DCC?
Yes, these springs are compatible with DCC. They pair extremely well with the adjustable dampening, as they maintain the distinct ride characteristics between the different modes.
Are these springs okay for a daily driver?
Yes, these springs were specifically designed for daily driven vehicles. They were designed to maintain the factory ride quality.
Will lowering springs cause my factory shocks and struts to wear out prematurely?
These springs are a linear rate design, similar to the OEM units. As such, they will not cause additional wear on the shocks and struts. The spring heights are also designed to stay within the travel range of the factory shocks and struts to ensure longevity of the factory components.
What do the rear plastic pads do?
These pads are recommend for Golf R and S3 applications. The reverse rake adapter pads offer some adjustability of the body line of the car. For a level body line, we recommend not installing the rear pads. For an even tire to fender gap (and a slight forward rake body line), we recommend installing the rear pads. The pads go on top of the rear rubber pad, against the body.
Do I need any other items for install?
No other items are needed for install. Due to complaints with clunking and other noises when installing with aftermarket strut mounts, we only recommend the OEM mounts.
