    Lowering A4

    Hi im new to the site and am after some information im looking to lower my 2002 Audi A4 TDI Saloon. Does anyone know if there is a maximum you can lower without adjusting to much of the suspension, i am on a bit of a budget so will prob just get springs for the time being? also ayone know any links to any good sites?

    Thanks

    Go for the Eibach Pro-kit springs, if you've got an SE that will drop it by approx 30mm which is about the right height for increased stability whilst having decent ride quality. I would advise upgrading your dampers at the same time, those SE dampers won't be able to handle the sports springs for long. I've just had this kit installed recently and I am impressed with the whole package (sport look, stability and comfort).

    How much do you reckon it has cost you for the whole kit, springs and dampers? And any before and after pics?

    Thanks

    The whole kit cost me 590 installed that included a laser alignment. I bought the dampers of ebay for 250 they usually go for around 450 and the springs were purchased recently from the garage who installed the kit. The spring though were going for about 143 check out http://www.eibach-suspension.co.uk/p1332687.htm they state that you won't need uprated dampers but I think it's a good idea to change them as well. See the before and after pictures:

    After

    Hi J7USS,

    It's seems ages ago since I bought them off you, I was going to get the votex body kit installed but am a bit undecided as to what body kit I want now, I'm warming to the S4 front and rear bumpers with the B7 votex side skirts possibly polished off with some S4 door blades and boot spoiler, Just getting hold of some bumpers is proving more difficult than I thought.
