For the street or track? The former would be better with some uprated road style dampers with original springs or only very slightly lowered ones.. for the track, you're talking big bucks.

 

what suspension setup would you recomend to make the most out of and escort for track use but is also used everyday

Koni sport dampers and OE/RS2K springs are a good package. I've had success with H&R springs and these dampers. The key is to not lower it too much.

 

For occasional track use i'd probably recommend some Bilstein B6/B8 dampers and H&R springs above. I've sold this package to other people in the past and they've been very happy with the results.

if its a MKII or MKI i would recommend Billies all the way but as Stu says for the proper set up ur talking big bucks. the only thing about MK 1/II track/rally stuff there should be good 2nd units about at reasonable money
