Have many people here fitted these springs? Do they work ok on standard shocks, or any other dramas known of ? Even any pics of them fitted showing the ride height...? ;)

Can't comment on pro sport, but other 60mm springs have been known to show up and finish off worn shocks, along with a terrible ride. Any lower than 30 35mm and you want coilovers. IMO.:cool:

Would not recommend 60mm on standard shocks, it will be a pogo stick:eek:

I'm on a H&R 30mm drop. Nothing dramatic, looks better, handles better and not too bumpy.

Before and after pics of my T5 2.5 tdi lowered on Pro sport 60mm springs with standard shocks.
Ride is a tad hard but no more body roll, looks 100% better.

No still using standard shocks, don't know how long they will last as their operating out of their original stroke tolerance.
Springs have been on for about 10 months.

Just keep an eye on them. If them bottom out they can leak (if they're oil filled of course) and that's an mot failure.
