    Eibach springs

    Anyone out there have an A3 quattro T sitting on 18s? I need to know if i can lower the car 30mm all round, but need to know if its gona rub or not. I think the front arches are gona sit about 10mm above the front wheels. I knoiw it wouldnt be a problem on a S3 as the arches are that bit wider. Pritty sure the back arches will be ok. Also whats the ride like afterwards? its just the cosmetics i was after but i dont want it to drive sh%t!!

    Here is my 2WD 1.8 on 18's with Eibachs:



    As you can see it drops the front quite nicely, but the rear is too high IMO.

    I would recommend them though as the ride is good and the handling is improved lots.

    Cheers Mark

    Cheers Mark,
    Do you get any rubbing from the front arch? Or did you need them to be rolled?

    No rubbing mate. That's why I am looking at coilovers to go lower!

    Tell me about it I've been lost without my car.

    It's the first time I've had to use public transport in 5 years and I won't be using it again as it has been crap!

    Oh well I hope the wait will be worth it soon when she's back [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
