    Coilovers how to determine which axle diameter?

    Hi,
    I'm about to get some coils for my a3 sportback 170 but i am unsure which diameter i need for the front axle?

    KW have mentioned 2 one at 50mm and the other 55mm...
    anyone know if i can get this via VIN number or something else?

    Anyone tell me how to select the correct 1?

    The smaller engine cars use 50mm, tha larger engines 55mm.

    A TDI 170 will always be 55mm.
