How to raise suspension on the cheap?

Recommended Posts

I want to raise the suspension on my 2000 1.0 Polo five door. It's got the wee little ally engine so the whole car doesn't weigh much. Probably the easiest car to push I've ever had. I don't really need "performance" suspension, I just need more ground clearance and stiffer rear springs because I sometimes use the poor bugger more as a van but it seems to cope well enough. I'm actually quite surprised how well the little engine goes. I've had bigger engines with less poke.

 

At the moment it's got the standard old suspension, could even be the originals by the looks of them. But before I start looking into adjustable sports suspension or something which would be overkill on this car I was just wondering if there were some kind of easy swap like for instance would the Caddy suspension fit or something.

I think caddy would on the front, but the backs are leaf sprung, so that'd be a negative. I'd probably just go for springs off a 1.9 diesel polo.
