The upgraded Sport Spring kit is one of the most popular upgrades for the Scirocco, subtly enhancing and lowering your car, improving both handling and appearance using the standard dampers without compromising comfort.

If you use your Scirocco day to day, and are only looking to uprate one element of your car’s suspension, you can’t do better than our Sport Springs. What do they do? Well, by replacing the car’s four standard springs with re-engineered, different rate, and shorter Sport Springs, the vehicle’s center of gravity is lowered, reducing body roll for better handling whilst maintaining the ride quality and comfort of your car. They have been painstakingly developed to work perfectly with your standard dampers. No other changes are needed, it’s as simple as that.
This is what makes the Sport Springs special – we have concentrated all of our engineering development into the Scirocco springs, rather than offering a wide range of ‘generic’ springs for all makes and models as many spring companies do. We would only offer a spring set that has been developed exclusively for your car, rather than one that ‘will do’. Typically we go through 20-30 combinations of spring rates and lengths for each model before we finalise the specification.
These springs are fully compatible with Sciroccos fitted with Volkswagens’s switchable ACC (Adjustable Chassis Control) dampers.
One of the comments that we get back from owners all the time is how impressed they are with the ride quality with the springs fitted. Whilst that may be a surprise to those who haven’t tried the Sport Springs before, it’s no surprise to us as the carefully-developed spring construction means that the spring rate in the middle of its travel is very similar to standard. It’s only towards the end of the spring’s travel (so, when braking or cornering hard) that we have engineered the spring to stiffen up.
We now recommend this set up for all but the most demanding use (such as track use, or when a very low ride-height is required, for which the StreetSport Coilover Suspension kits are ideal).
Many experts consider suspension development to be as much an art as a science. In truth, it’s a bit of both. What is certain is that an ‘off the shelf’ spring set that some companies offer is not going to be optimised for any particular car. For our Sport Springs, we were very determined to put extensive development into determining the perfect specifications for the Scirocco. So, our development cars have covered tens of thousands of miles to determine the ideal rate for these Sport Springs; we are very proud of the end results and can promise with confidence that we believe these to be the best springs for your Scirocco on the market.
We have chosen to lower the car by 20-25 mm for each kit in order to preserve the wheel travel needed to keep the usability of the standard car, with an optimised spring rate depending on Scirocco model. Go lower or stiffer as some well-known lowering springs do, and in our experience your car will bounce and crash its way along the road as the dampers are mismatched to spring-rate, and the springs themselves run out of wheel travel. You also risk reducing the life of your dampers significantly if you choose the wrong springs – which the Sport Springs are guaranteed not to do.
The end result of fitting the Sport Springs is a more responsive feel to the car’s handling and a lower centre of gravity. The Sport Springs are a linear rate spring with a barrel-type shape so the end coils taper in. This allows us to preserve the ride quality in normal use, but stiffen the spring rates at the ends of its travel when cornering or braking hard.

The springs come in powder-coated gloss blue with RacingLine logos, and work extremely well in combination with our Anti-Roll Bars.
Note that we recommend that you get your car’s wheel-tracking verified as a part of the installation process. Whilst the ride-height reduction that the Sport Springs provide keep the geometry within the Volkswagen-recommended tolerances, if your car is not brand new it may have already been moving out of tolerance with use, so it is good practice for your installer to verify that all is well after fitment.
