    lowering springs for 2.8 quattro s

    im looking for some lowering springs for my 2.8qs, ive not long fitted replacement sport dampers of the s4 but now thinking id like it to look lower etc.

    im really only doing it for appereance wise so not looking for something for track use etc and nopt looking to go coilover route

    ive found a few makes on the net but when you ask them how much lower will they make the car sit considering i already have sport springs fitted, they sort of go a bit quite lol as most cant give a straight answer lol

    so does anyone have any recondmendations?.........not looking to spend massive amounts its more for cosmetic

    cheers alan

    I would look at PI springs or the like if you want it lowered more than the factory spec as many good aftermarket spring kits will lower xxxmm compared with factory and ussualy 1 size fits all kind of things...however, i found that the Eibach springs are the best bang for buck you can get as they still with the factory springs- ride wise - while not beeing lowered to the point that's not practical anymore ! You will need uprated shocks as well if you plan to lower more than 40mm and i believe its only coillies wich will give this kind of drop...without costing the earth !

    i think 40mm is probably what im think off, i know the factory sport springs are around 10-15mm lower than standard, and i was thinking of maybe something 20-25mm lower than my sport ones

    so just need to find where best place to sorce some from is

    ive got a complete set of s4 springs, but the problem you have is the s4 is heavier and the spring rating higher so th2.8s doesnt sit as low as you would think, in fact when i fitted them it seemed to make hardly if almost no difference

    so that ruled out that option unfortunately or id have kept them on
