These Shine Real Street spring sets will let you start building a Shine Racing Real Street Suspension.

This is my favorite combination for an all-around, 4 season, comfortable performance suspension!

Add Bilstein or Koni struts, shocks, and a Shine Rear sway bar to complete the kit!

The SRS suspension spring set includes front and rear replacement springs. Real Street Suspensions are designed to work in everyday conditions, including fast highway on-ramps and rough, bumpy roads.

Volkswagens have between 65-70% of their weight over their front wheels, which causes understeering. Larger front sway bars cause more understeering and unloading of the inside front wheel during hard cornering, resulting in wheelspin. This is a significant handicap, especially when autocrossing. Shine Racing suspensions are designed to minimize understeer and increase grip. Please look at our Real Street Suspension kit listing, which has 4 springs, 4 shocks and an SRS custom-fabricated tubular rear sway bar.

The improvement over stock is amazing. Turn in is dramatically sharpened, and overall grip and dynamics greatly improved. The ride is stiffer than the stock but much better than other spring kits.

Parts are available separately, but best results are obtained with the complete kits.

Note: We now carry Springs specifically designed for the Mk4 VW TDIs
The Real Street Philosophy

Shine Racing Service established its reputation by developing race car suspensions and advising the touring car racing community. It follows that when Dick Shine began developing suspensions for street cars, handling was the primary concern. The Real Street Suspension is the result of years of development and testing.

The Real Street Suspension is all about controlling body roll. A car with very little roll is comfortable and confidence-inspiring in the twisties and more stable in transition, transfers less weight from the inside wheels, and experiences less camber change, resulting in more available grip and faster cornering speeds.

The key to reducing body roll is working with the car's suspension geometry, not against it. Contrary to popular belief, lowering a car does not automatically improve handling performance; in most cases, it actually hinders handling. By setting up the car at the proper ride height, the car's tendency to roll is greatly reduced.

The springs in the Real Street Suspension are significantly stiffer than the stock springs, further reducing body roll under cornering loads without being so stiff as to create an unduly harsh ride.

The Shine rear bar does a fantastic job of controlling body roll on the torsion beam rear axle. It is lighter and stiffer than any other bar on the market. Due to its location in the beam(parallel to the stock bar), the Shine bar adds no unsprung weight, no ground clearance issues, and no friction-filled linkages to bind up.

The Real Street Kit is a great value performance upgrade that produces handling unmatched by any other street suspension at any price. Your investment is safe, as the shocks carry a lifetime warranty, and the rest of the kit is guaranteed to the original owner for the lifetime of the car.
