I just bought an A4 2.8 V6 Quattro, B5.
Its bouncy as hell and upon inspection someone has fitted Apexi lowering springs on OEM dampers, which have given up. The rear of the car is lower than the front by about an inch and overall pretty rubbish.
I want to ideally just replace the back shocks as the fronts arent too bad, and about the right ride height (about two fingers between the wing and the top of the tyre). My question is about what to fit. I know i cant fit B6 rears, nor passat or avant rears.
However, i dont want to have a massive gap in my rear arches by fitting bog standard OEM springs and dampers. Are the Audi sport springs a little bit lower? I keep catching my centre section join on speedbumps and its just not practical, and its knackering my nice shiny stainless system. Ideally i would like a two finger gap in the rear.
