Rear springs and isolation rubbers
« on: January 29, 2018, 03:31:12 PM »
Has anyone got the part numbers for 2005 TDI rear springs and rubbers? I don't really want harder or lower springs as did that on my other Gal and ruined it! Are the rubbers used on other VW models such as the T5?
Both my springs have snapped the lower ends off and Not due!

I've found some rubbers on ebay for 11 each but still need to find the correct springs.

You can get aftermarket springs but there was a thread a while ago where these were used and the shape of the spring end caused the rubber seat to wear resulting in metal to metal contact.
The general opinion is stick to OE springs from VW.
Have a search on here for the thread to read up sure there were part numbers on it.

I can try our local VW dealers but not much good from past experience. Local factors are quoting around 50 a spring and they offer HD ones as I have a tow bar. The problem is they dont specify what the spring rates are so a bit anoying. I may just get standard ones? Thanks

I've found blue squares marked on my original rear springs so anyone know the spec?

There's a major thread about spring replacement on here somewhere.  Loads of links to further information.  Worth searching for.
