    Just come from audi - suspension is shot! Advice needed!!

    Hey chaps just got back from my service and they have told me;
    -the bushes on both anti roll bars are nackered
    -the rear damper lower bushes are nackered
    -the front bottom arm rear bushes are split

    Looks like i need some new suspension! Im thinking of getting uprated front & rear ARB kits - which ones are the ones to go for? Ive had a look at some previous posts etc but im still unclear

    Also i DONT want to lose any ride comfort but obviously need new dampers so im thinking of keeping the existing springs and going for some bilsteins?? Or shall i put new springs on? I dont really want a low car......

    All advice will be appreciated!

    Well i went for the Billy B8 shocks with Eibach springs, not too low just right IMO and the R32 ARB front and rear, have 18's too and ride quality is great, not teeth cattering or owt, spot on!! my pennys worth.
