Volkswagen Polo (9N3) in production between 2005 and 2009

Suspension

SUPLEX advises that Polo 9N3 models left the factory with one of three different suspension settings: standard, sports or rough road. Most vehicles will have left the factory with standard suspension but the factory sports option – standard on all 1.8 L GTI and 1.4 L TDI BlueMotion models – included uprated springs which lowered the chassis by 15 mm. All CrossPolo models were equipped with rough road suspension requiring special springs which increased ride height by 15 mm. When replacing tired or broken springs, technicians need to order the appropriate parts to avoid ride height and handling problems.
