NGP Type II Clubsport Coilover Suspension System - VW Mk5 Rabbit / GTI / Jetta / Mk6 Golf / GTI / GLI / Golf R / Audi A3 8P/ Audi TT Mk2
***Taller rear springs are available for those looking for more clearance***
Fits All Mk5 GTI/Golf/Rabbit/Jetta, Mk6 GTI/Golf/GLI, Audi Mk2 TT FWD and Audi A3 8P FWD models for customers wanting an extreme look and aggressive performance. Sedan models or AWD models should select taller rear spring.*
NGP is proud to announce that our Type II coilover system is now available. Featuring stiffer damper and spring rates, the Type II's are made for those that want more aggressive performance or additional lowering compared to the NGP Type I coilover.
What's the big difference between the Type I and Type II coilovers?
While our Type I system is designed for drivers who want a great blend of ride quality and handling ideal for the average daily driver and sporting enthusiats, our Type II system is designed with the more aggressive driver in mind. The first big difference are the springs: while the Type I coilovers feature progressive rate springs which are suitable for the street, the Type II's utlize a linear racing-type spring system with much higher base rates. To match this increase in spring stiffness, the Type II's have firmer twin tube dampers, with adjustable rebound damping in the front. Additionally the front housing is shorter, allowing for a lower ride height with no comparable loss in suspension travel. These changes make for a significant difference in performance, handling and lowering capabilities over our Type I coilovers, while having a much more aggressive ride and appearance.
Please note, you cannot get to stock or near-stock ride heights with this suspension. Custom rear spring solutions for those wanting more ride height at the rear are available.
We believe the best products for a German car are those that are made in Germany, and because of this, so are our coilovers. Our Type II coilovers are manufactured in Germany, with only the highest quality materials. We're sure that you'll find the production quality of our German made Type II coilovers is far superior to other coilovers typically produced by far east facilities.
The twin tube low pressure shocks of our Type II Coilovers feature an increased damping rate matched to high quality alloy springs. They are designed to give you unparalleled handling and aggressive looks, with a sporty and track-oriented ride. While the Type II are much stiffer than the Type I, we still consider them to provide an acceptable ride for hardcore enthusiasts who daily drive their dual-purpose machines. We have tested many different spring and damper rates for our Type II coilovers over a wide range of road and track conditions in order to ensure that they are calibrated to give you the best possible handling, and will hold up to everyday use. In addition, the front shocks feature 16-way adjustable rebound damping to allow you to dial in front suspension response, ride and performance just the way you want for your needs, suspension set up and wheel / tire combinations.
Our Type II coilovers feature high-grade steel housings with a heavy duty zinc plating for weather protection. The housings are designed with adjustability in mind, and feature increased spring perch thread size. This allows for faster, more smooth adjustments, and also works as a prevention to road grime buildup in the threads. They also utilize a single locking perch design, which prevents thread and locking ring binding issues that are common with coilover systems using dual locking perch designs.

When shopping for your next set of coilovers, please keep in mind that the NGP Type II coilovers are not designed as a one-size fits all solution. They are designed specifically for the person looking to get the best possible handling from their vehicle. This big increase in handling does unfortunately come with an increase in harshness in regards to ride quality. If you are more interested in having a good blend of handling and ride quality, we recommend that you look at our Type I coilovers, which are designed for just that.
Taller Rear Springs
For those looking for more height adjustment range in the rear, we now have taller rear springs. For AWD vehicles or those with extra weight in the rear, we recommend using the 285LB rear springs. For most FWD applications, we recommend using the 345LB rear springs. The taller rear springs come as a pair.
- Mk5 Rabbit (2006-2009)
- Mk5 Jetta (2005.5-2010)**
- Mk5 GTI/GLI (2006-2009)
- Mk5 R32 (2008)**
- Mk6 Golf (2010-2014)
- Mk6 GTI (2010-2014)
- Mk6 GLI (2012-2017)
- B6 CC (2009-2017)
- B7 Passat (2012+)
- Audi TT Mk2 FWD(2006-2014)
- Audi A3 8P FWD (2006-2014)
Tech Note: For proper clearance for Aftermarket Sway bars to Housing on Mk5 / Mk6 Golfs and Jettas NGP recomends the 20mm shorter SuperPro TRC12245 sway bar end links.
Please note: These coilovers will not work on Mk6 Jetta 2.0 8v and 2.5 models equipped with a rear trailing beam. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any compatability questions. Will not work on B6/B7 Passat sedan or wagon models.
*Ride height may vary depending on application, please contact us with any application specific questions you may have.
**Due to the additional weight at the rear of R32, Jetta and other sedan models maximum rear ride height on these cars is significantly lower than stock and should only be installed by customers seeking a very aggressive look. Please select the taller rear spring option above if you're interested in more clearance in the rear.
Why new strut bearings?
NGP Racing offers (and recommends) replacement strut bearings for all VW and Audi vehicles that use them. Many people may not be familiar with what a strut bearing is or why they need to be replaced, so we've come up with this brief tutorial on what they are, and why it is wise to replace them when installing your new suspension...
A strut bearing is used at the top of all front (not rear) strut type suspensions. The strut, as an integral part of the front suspension assembly, must be able to turn freely as you turn the wheel left to right. The strut bearing is what allows this to happen. The strut bearing is typically comprised of two parts, the bearing and the bushing. On more modern cars these are two separate pieces, on older cars they are joined together. Being at the front of the car, these parts take a beating on every bump, dip and pot-hole that you hit. The bearings can become damaged and will bind / pop and make noise, as well as allow for play at the top of the strut. The rubber bushing will gradually become compressed and will no longer properly cushion the assembly in the strut tower. All of this adds up to a rougher ride, poor handling and increased tire wear due to changing alignment, and overall poor performance.
Optional Performance Camber Plates:
Camber plates excel when ensuring that the tire's contact patch is flat on the pavement under hard cornering. This is essential to maximizing grip levels dialing in the required amount of negative camber (leaning the tire in) for your specific tire and suspension combination. Higher grip levels cause further body roll and suspension deflection and this requires more camber. These Integrated Engineering camber plates allow maximum adjustability of camber. They also provide a stable foundation for your front suspension by replacing the compliant rubber OEM mounts with a steel bearing, eliminating unwanted movement under heavy loads.
