    get in touch with your supplier or eibach directly, springs should last a lot longer than 8 months. Were they fitted by a professional?

    Common problem on the S3 and TT Quattro's but as said speak to Eibach and they should be able to sort it out.

    Wow thats unlucky, Ring up who you bought them from and ask about a re-fund or another set. Good luck.

    Eibach will have no problem changing the rear springs for another set, they'll just need the old ones back.

    Cheers guys. It was jim @ star performance that told me, he fitted them. He just replaces the 2 back ones no questions.

    Just got the car back. New timing belt, alt belt, wpump, tensioners, oil change,2 new spring, thermostat, cv boot was on its way out so that got done and mot.

    Its only done 40k but got the timing belt done, a bit early or just as well getting it done?
