Hi mate,
You just bought a project, or do you just ask a lotta questions all the time?
The mark 1 golf stuff is the same!
I had a bit of luck and found a boxed set of springs that one rear was missing from, I got the fronts (40mm) lower springs for 40!!
I then used new damper inserts (standards) and fitted Bonrath lowering caps. Its now 55mm lower at the front and looks just right.
If you've got loads of money you could contact AVO and get a couple of adjustable coilovers (about 100 quid each I think, could be more!!) I think you'll have to phone them direct because outlets only sel complete kits for the mk 1 gti!

Cheers mate,
