Re: quattro-digest V3 #379
What kind of springs are Intrax???
Anyway, you should prolly look at a spring set that doesn't lower the
car as much. With a 4ksq that low, you'll encounter probs such as bump
steer and other things as well as the bottoming you describe.
I would suggest you look into the Eibach springs. or possibly the
H&R's. The Boge's are a pretty good choice for street only use so I
wouldn't think that needs changing.
As far as the stabil. hose splitting, I personally have never seen it,
so I don't really know what to say.

I am new to the quattro list but just had a couple of questions. (1)
What is the probleb with the idle stablizer hose on the 4ksq under lift
throttle, closing flat and splitting down its length. I am on my second
at $25/per, I would like to solve it. My 1985 4ksq has 173000 mi. (and
not counting) and passes CT state emmissions when not split, but barely
fails when split. (2) I updated the suspension with Boge TG struts,
Intrax 1 1/2" lowering springs. Does anyone have any info ona better
alternative for the rough roads of New England.(occaisional bottoming).
I would like to keep the lower CG but can't live with the bottoming. I
don't have any bump stops and only get the problem in the weighted
end(front). Also, Bob D. I am still interested in your '83 Ur-Q if it's
