    shocks springs

    Hi Dave, i know this is a bit of an odd question, but hoped you might be able to shed a little light on it for me as i've asked a few members on here and got different answers each time.

    I have a 2010 1.6 TDI A3 SE sportback, and was looking at lowering with springs. i was going to use just the sport springs to drop 15mm and this would keep my car relatively standard. However, someone has advised me that the SE and Sport use different shocks AS WELL AS different springs, and the S Line uses different shocks and springs again.

    can you confirm if thats correct - that there are 3 parts - 3 different sized shocks - for SE, Sport and S Line? Not taking into account springs etc.

    Regards,

    Plezz.

    thanks Dave, in that case, would you be able to provide me with the part numbers for SE and Sport shocks for 2010 1.6 TDI sportback? i can look into them both and check out dimensions etc. and see how they compare?

    Regards,

    Plezz.

    to be honest
    are part number dont really give dimensions, such as length and mm
    just have a code which is relative to the weight and load
