First post my name is ciaran and im living in cork ireland im looking for some advice on what to do with my tdi a4 it a great car and gives great mpg and is cheap to run but I want to lower the car and give it a more up to date look as its 99 and getting dated looking hopefully i will get some 17/18 in wheels aswell for it eventually.
First of all i use my car every day for going to college which is an 80mile round trip so i will be putting up a few miles. Before i bought the car it had all front suspension arms replaced and has done only a couple of thousand miles sence.
Currently the car has done 110 thousand miles on what look (and feel) like the original shocks i want to go for around a 50mm drop and im leaning towards getting coilovers.
The biggest thing i am worried about before lowering the car is with a 50mm drop will i be wearing out my front suspension arms super quick ?
Will it be putting a lot of pressure on the other suspension components ?
Is there anything else i need to consider before doing this ?
Thanks for your help
