I might add that when you set the ride height, the suspension should be close to the center of travel. Also, the stock VW sway bar will still work. I recommend using the cheapest “JC Whitney” non-gas charged shocks too.
I also softened the rear IRS suspension by having .100″ turned off the diameter of the 2 rear, round torsion bars. I think that’s why the scales told us the front was still a little stiffer than perfect.
The Robert Bentley VW “blue book” (older Type 1 VW models) or “red book” (newer Type 1 VW models) will be a great addition to your library too.
