    Finally getting coilovers fitted

    Alright folks!!!

    Just a quick question...

    I have a 2002 quattro 8l but wondered does the 8l quattro have the same ARB as the TT quattro?

    If so then i dont need to change the arb to avoid rubbing on the driveshafts issues which would be nice.

    Cheers.

    Yo dudes/dudettes.


    Thought id best get some pics up of my car since I got it lowered on the coilovers.


    Really happy with it now, just need some spacers and the adjustable tie bars once funds allow.


    What do you guys think of the height, it 's lowered all the way down on the back with the adjusters in but thinking the front may be a tad too low compared to the back, your thoughts?


    Oh and no driveshaft rub with the quattro


    Keeping the original wheels that are on it now, they are 225/45/17.

    Thanks mate :-)

    I will be taking some more pics in a mo, hoping you guys can advise on spacer size for the front and rear.

    That being said its an a3 not an s3 so the arches are not as wide.

    Cheers John. Would these not be too wide though as my car is an a3 and not an s3 so the arches are not as wide.

    Other peoples thoughts would be nice too?

    although i reckon F:20MM R:30MM would be best. but then you'd need to source some big ass bolts

    Wow that would be fat as funk with the 20/30 spacing Karl.

    I think ill go with the 15/20 spacing just in case those last ones you suggested are too wide and make the wheels stick out past the arches being as mine is an a3.

    Think ill go for the ones John suggested as they are a cheaper lol.

    One more thing... Will the bolts that come with the spacers be the right ones for my standard alloy wheels? As there are standard alloys and aftermarket alloys.

    Dont want the bolts pulling through the alloys lol.

    Ps if anybody has any of the above spacers/bolts for sale pm me :-)

    Cheers dudes.

    oem alloys reqiure radius seated bolts (they have a curved taper)
    aftermarket wheels require tapered bolts (straight taper)

    These ones mate and they are really good saying that they was really cheap.

    Heres the blurb...

    TA coil-overs are manufactured using the latest techniques with the highest quality materials and combined with their aggressive pricing strategy, are taking the performance accessories market by storm. These coil-overs are a must for enthusiastic drivers who demand the absolute best!

    TA coil-overs are adjustable, so the ride height of a vehicle can be customised for a variety of track designs and rim sizes. The coil-overs are so adjustable, that they needn’t be limited to track use only, but can also be set-up for public-road use and even winter tyres.
    All coilovers are adjustable to levels within the TÜV-certified range. Beyond that, the car can be set-up for motor sport-events or show-events, which is beyond TÜV thresholds. For practical reasons, an adjustment-key is included in the package so you can make your car roadworthy again for the journey home.

    -adjustable in the front and the rear 30mm-70mm
    -come with TÜV-Certificate
    - 2 years warranty

    Thanks mate, We just wound the adjusters down equally on each side so I cant give an exact figure lol, once the wheels where back on though it was about right height wise so its just been left a that for now.

    When I get my spacers i will get it set up properly but still undecided what spacers to get yet
