VW Caddy Mk3 Rear Lowering Kit /  Leaf-Spring Adjusters

Fits Caddy Mk3 Van Rear Axle

 The Lowering Kit allows you to flip the rear axle on your Caddy 2K Van and then adjust the ride height to suit

We have 2 options available for this, The Low option is good for lowering 40mm - 80mm (this will go lower but the wheel will be pushed further towards the arch), If you are planning on going lower than 80mm then you will need the 'Super Low' kit (this will keep the wheel central at this height)

This kit consists of:

4 x Adjustable Shackle Plates (2 per side)
6 x Axle Sandwich Plates (3 Per Side)
8 x Hi-Tensile Bolts

8 x Nyloc Nuts
16 x Washers

They are full adjustable with 6 different height options. The beauty of this setup is that you can adjust the height as many times as you like by simply adjusting 2 bolts. Perfect if you like to run low but still want the option of carrying some weight. If you do not want so many options, you can cut the plates down to your desired length

We have made some major changes compared to other kits available on the market:

1 - Super Low Option

Compared to the other kits available, our new design (not the one pictured above) can go another 2 notches lower which equates to around 20mm.

2 - Hidden Shackles

We have removed the highest setting to hides the shackles behind the rear bumper. This also aids ground clearance as we found the shackles are too close to the ground, which would cause problems going up steep driveways or kerbs (a beached Caddy is not a pretty sight!)

3 - Axle Relocation

This is the main change and something that we found to be a major issue with other kits on the market. When lowering the rear by a fair amount, the wheel moves very close to the front of the arch. We have made changes that relocates the wheel much further back. Below are some pictures of the first kit and the new design

If you require the 'Super Low' Option for lowering more than 80mm please contact us by email

Other Manufacturers - Notice how close the tyre is to the front of the arch. This is on the lowest setting


Darkside Kit - This is on the same height setting. The new kit can go around 20mm lower than this (18"x8.5 with 225/40/R18). As you can see, the wheel is much more central.


The Shackle Plates are Laser Cut and then Zinc Electroplated to prevent corrosion


THEY DO NOT FIT THE MK1 or MK2 CADDY - Please see the following link:
