EQT Balanced Line Coilovers - VW/Audi MQB 1.8T/2.0T
Our EQT Balanced Line Coilover Suspension was developed and torture tested on our own Mk7 and Mk8 Golf R. Our car sees daily driver duty as well as very aggressive track days and back road driving. As a result, our suspension had to provide a perfect balance of ride quality and all out handling performance. At the softest setting, our coilovers offer a firm but very smooth and controlled ride for your daily commute on bumpy public roads. When you're ready to hit the track or twisties, use the 24 way adjustment knobs to easily dial in dampening to achieve optimal handling and lap times. The front adjusters are at the top and are easy to get to under the hood. The rear adjusters are located at the bottom of the strut for easy access under the car without having to use a jack or lift.
The ride height is adjustable independently of spring preload and offers enough adjustment to go from near stock ride height down to a nice wheel gap elimination. With the independent height adjustment, there is no need to change preload and sacrifice shock stroke when you change ride height.
The fronts come with both Fixed Top Hats (non-adjustable), or Adjustable Camber Plates with pillowball mounts while the rears will use your factory or aftermarket top mounts. The Fixed Top Hats will be more for Comfort or Daily Driving style, have less NVH (noise/vibration/harshness). The Adjustable Top Hats are more geared towards the Sport/Track enthusiast as they are stiffer, and offer that extra level of adjustment to really fine tune your ride for carving up backroads or hunting apexes at your favorite track but can have a bit more NVH. Our pillowball mounts are comprised of two main parts: A SUJ2 Steel bearing, and a Chromoly Steel 2 piece case. Pillowball mounts provide bind free operation and precise feedback to the driver.
Our lower mounts are engineered extensively for strength with key area’s reinforced. They are designed with all of the features of the OEM system to be sure every brake line and ABS sensor harness is securely mounted. This keeps installation simple and straightforward.
Our 52mm mono-tube shock bodies are made from ultra high strength JIS G3445-STKM13C (DIN2393-ST44-2) carbon steel and are electrolysis nickel plated for resistance to corrosion and fatigue in harsh climates. We use a 44mm piston with digressive style valving which offers excellent track performance while maintaining a comfortable ride. Every single shock is hand assembled and dyno tested to insure dampening and compression valving is within 5% variation from side to side. There is no random inspection or tests, every single shock is dyno tested. In the event the shock fails the testing, the internals are discarded and it goes back to the assembly room. We use cold-bent springs made from high strength SAE9254 steel.
Coilovers sold on or after January 1st, 2023, are now covered by an industry leading 5 year limited* warranty.
Standard Spring Rates: 9k front, 7k rear.
Swift Spring Upgrades optional, and we can provide custom swift spring rates for additional cost.
** Cars equipped with DCC from the factory will require DCC deletes to avoid warning lights and errors.

Air ride vs Eqt coilovers
Honestly I love the look of air ride, but far as handling it was lacking control and response. After talking with Cliff and doing some research I pulled the trigger, I paired these with the 034 ball joints and white line sway links. The car is an absolute monster cornering, the response and feel is what I have been looking for since purchasing the car. For the price and customer support, you won’t be disappointed and will absolutely love the feel and responsiveness of your car!
