Hi Brandon,

On the B5 cars, there're only 2 suspension options, non-sport and sport.  And both suspension options are different for the 1.8t and 2.8 cars.

For aftermarket suspension, the best is till a coilover setup, it lets you set your own height, even damping stiffness on some higher end kits, but of course this route will cost more.  Springs and dampers combo is more economical, however I'd suggest getting them as a set that are engineered to match each other, versus separately from different makers, this will ensure that the ride characteristic stays consistant at all speed and on all road conditions.
