    Suspension

    Hi fellas, I'm sorry if this is treading on trodden ground but I'm looking at putting eibach pro springs on my s3. I'm planning initially to do this on standard shocks, and without adding adjustable tie arms! The eibach springs lower the front by 25mm and the rear by 20mm.

    The question is will i need adjustable tie arms for the rear, or is 20mm not low enough to cause camber issues and lead the tread on my tyres to evaporate at a stupidly quick rate?

    And very briefly has anyone ever had any experience with the oettinger exhaust for the 8l s3? Is it worth the 750 quid?

    Thanks in advance for the answers.

    eibach pro kit -25mm on s3 wont go that low, believe me, you will be lucky if car will go 10mm low from original suspension and one is for sure you aint gonna need adjustable tie arms for the rear

    hey Samurai, thanks very much for the reply i do appreciate it! How come my S3 wont go as low as 25mm at the front and 20mm at the rear? Im not worried about how low it is just was worried about the state of the rear tyres? Is that picy of your S3 it looks awesome!

    i dont know why he aint gonna go that low but we all (who have S3 and put eibach springs on it) have same issue. I put eibach prokit (same as you wanna use) on my S3 befor 2 months thats why i know. Maybe they calculate something wrong in eibach, maybe ordinary A3 8L quatrro does go low for 25/20 but S came from factory little bit lower as other, maybe thats why.
    Yep, thats pic of my S3, thx mate
