VW Sharan Sport (1.9 tdi 2004)
« on: August 29, 2016, 01:18:10 AM »
Hello all,

I have a query in regards to the rear coil spings on my Sharan, are the rear coil spring different between the sport version and a non sport version?

One of the coils needs replacing but I want to make sure before buying the parts only to find out i've got the wrong ones (I couldn't see a difference on eurocarparts)

Yup there are about 5 different versions available. The old spring will have a couple of coloured bars on it which determine the type, thickness and height. You should match them to ensure even ride height. Personally though I would replace both as a pair since older springs loose stiffness and you'll only introduce uneven tyre wear (and crap handling) if they are at different levels.
