OK, so I finally got around to getting a couple of mods done – photos to follow (when I can work out how to add them):
I’ve fitted H&R spacers front and back (bought these from mitch78 - thanks again!). From memory the front were 10mm and rear 15mm.
I’ve also had fitted 35mm H&R lowering springs. I was hoping for a bit more of a drop over my old std S-Line springs but can’t afford coilovers right now – hopefully it’ll settle a bit lower anyway.
However, on the rear passenger side I’m getting an occasional noise over some bumps which I presume is the wheel rubbing somewhere on the arch. I only have standard 18” RS6 style wheels, (225 tyres, not sure of the wheel offset) and this doesn’t happen on the rear drivers side...
I haven’t yet had a full 4-wheel alignment done. While I will get this done surely the wheels can’t be far enough out of alignment to cause the rub? 15mm spacers and the 35mm springs seem a common mod but I don’t think I’ve read other reports of rubbing.
