    H & R springs?

    Hi, tried searching but brings back nothing. How good are these lowering springs? Do they improve the suspension alot, or is full coilovers required for this? Opinions please. Am I also right in thinking there is no camber adjustment on the S3? I have seen adjustable rear arms for sale, but have not seen anything for the fronts?? This is something I will want to sort out when I get an S3 as I'm used to the suspension on a type R.

    Thanks in advance.

    The H&R seem to be the recommended on here, but also is recommended that you dont just put new springs on standard dampeners as it leads to a crap ride quality, also if you drop the car more than 15mm you will need the rear tie bars to save wearing out tyres!

    Yeah as mentioned the H&R's are a really good choice but best matched with a set of uprated dampers.

    The S3 has camber adjustment at the front but for the rear you'll need a set of adjustable tie bars.

    Give me a shout if I can be anymore help or if you'd like any prices.

    Sorry i disagree bud, i've lowered mine on KW 25mm rear, tyre wear is even and i've had a few sets of wheels on lol

    I'd recommend tie bars if you start getting uneven wear, why change something if it doesn't cause an issue
