This is an awesome thread! subscribed!!
I'm wondering if anyone has any info about doing this to coilovers from mk2/3's? Both front, and rear. I searched with zero results
I am running FK Konigsports on my mk3 vr and the shocks are starting to get a bit tired, so a koni replacement insert option would be sweet!! And maybe rebuilding some blown racelands for track use on my mk2 as well!
I got this set to put on. I actually wanted the non height adjustable rears for the spring rate since I'm not wanting to slam my MK4. As strange as that is. Just looking for a 1 finger gap. I don't expect much life out of the shocks/struts and after reading this thread I'll put some calipers on the struts to see what I could replace them with.

thread out. Guy uses 8610-1436 Konis.
I measured the regular raceland strut body and the 8610-1436 will indeed work. So I just ordered one atm. I will however have to make a spacer. I havent gotten the exact measurement yet, but it should be around a half inch. Did you (OP) cut the old inserts to make spacers?
