Hi guys
Quite sure there are loads of links on this ...but i cant find any , im looking for the definitive list of jobs that need done to carry out a 2inch lift and any potential hiccups that may surface,

ps would like to use the aluminium round bar and make my own spacers, however should there be a rubber shim above and below each block of 2inch aluminium round bar ??

thanks

okay to start, you need 14 spacers and 8 longer bolts and nuts, 8 for the body mounts, 4 for the rear boot floor, and 2 on top the the chassis rails under the drivers seat and passenger seat, some will say you wont need to two last ones but if your going to do a proper job do it properly,
another thing is on the gear box tunnel thers a rubber witch seals the top of the box to the body, that WILL split when you jack it up im not sure if you can buy these but i extended mine with a push bike inner tube then sealed it with silicon

i did mine on a v8 range rover but its the same in the way of lifting it, but as for droping or raising the radiator im not sure as you have a tdi right?
so the you might the the intercooler to **** about with as well,

also you will need to extend the rear seat belt mounts, and the securing points that hold the front floor to the chassis, theres a clevis pin that holds it to the body this is going to be a ******* to get out as the rust will hold the split pin in place and be a pain to get it,

its best to do one side at a time then front to rear as you will distort the body, anyway take off all the nuts "cover in wd40 day before hand to make it easier" then put a jack on the side under the sill and jack up the body, you will see the rubber bushes move away from the chassis, once there enough clearence put the spacer under the rubber bush then slide the bolt in and repeat, all down the side of the body, as for the boot spacers you just slide them in as soon as the body is under all the spacers and tightend up the boot spacers wont go anywhere nor will the onces on the chassis rails,

i could go on forever on how to do it and what you will face but it will take me forever to write in all down, pm your number and il give you a call and explain everything over the phone,
