    GAZ do kits and bespoke stuff. I'd give them a call for sure.

    Hi,i emailed GAZ to enquire about the rear coilovers and this is what they said?..

    "Steve,
    The Audi A3 rear dosen't have a coilover on the rear & you cannot fit one as the mounting points are not strong enough & their isn't enough room.

    Regards,
    Mark Gazzard"

    So how are the rears set up when you buy a coilover kit??..

    This page will give you an idea of how the rear suspension is setup. Golf IV is the same as the A3 underneath.

    As mentioned you'd need to get the rear adjustable perches with associated different length spring.

    TBH, I'd get a complete kit and sell your current setup, but that's your choice.

    yeah i have tryed to sell my kit mate,but im not %100 sure what it will fit?.as i got it off ebay.the rear is not the right set up for mine.i have been told its for a 4wd set up.so i think ill sell the rears seperate to the front as i think the fronts are correct for mine but are not right for a 4wd set up!..so im just looking for the rear colovers.i have thought about putting the front coilovers on and just fitting uprated shocks on the rear with my h&r springs??

    A far as I know the diameter for the 4WD spring is smaller and will not fit 2WD, so that sounds like pub talk. Many kits seem to put the arse in the air on the A3.

    There will be numbers on the springs. You can cross reference them with H&R for what they fit.

    A few companies do just the rears but it would be better to get the full set. A3 non Quattro springs won't fit A3 Quattro's and vice versa.

    i would ask about FK Sport Edition Plus coilovers.. they can be bought rear only and are dampening (both rebound and compression) adjustable... you can get the rear collar, springs and dampers for a good price for sure!

    I have the whole set up on my car, and couldnt be happier.
