Ive used the Easystreet kit before, install isnt bad at all but if you get the "Slam" kit you have to take apart the entire front crossmember to remove the swaybar. Also requires triple square socket set (any VW work does really). Let me know if you want pricing on Airlift stuff, I'll beat any advertised price easily. Pics here of one I did:

Re: Bagging an 07 Rabbit?

Can't think of anything else it needed. If you get the regular Lifestyle kit you keep the factory sways but doesn't sit as low. It does require you to trim the hump off the control arm in the back that would normally hold the spring in place, so if you ever want to go back you would need to weld the hump back on or buy replacement lowers.

Re: Bagging an 07 Rabbit?

My buddy just bagged his mkV jetta using the airlift slam struts. To get the car to lay crossmember you will need to remove the swaybar and notch the frame for the axles. The axle notches are just like notching for tie rods on a truck.
