    Mines running Bilstein B8 Shockers and H&R Springs and the spacers are 10mm (F) and 15mm (R)



    Are you planning on upgrading the shockers as well?

    I've had this set up for a few years now and can safely say it transforms the S3 from the boat it use to be to a more confidence inspiring handling machine when chucking it round bends. The ride is obviously a touch firmer but also very comfortable when driving normally.

    Pricey but well worth it!

    Thanks bud

    Wasn't going to do the b8 shocks to be honest

    How much are they??

    If I was spending over 300 it'd be coilovers!
