    I bought these ones and delivery was great

    AUDI A4 (8D2, B5) 1.8 quattro, 1.8 T quattro Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs | eBay

    The lowered my TQS really nice and subtle over standard height and the ride is alot better (near standard) just sightly stiffer.

    +1 for the Eibach springs. Worth shopping about though, you may find them slightly cheaper elsewhere. I think I got mine from C&R Enterprises on ebay.

    Yeh, just make sure you order the eibachs for "without Aircon" otherwise the car will sit stupid.

    I've got two sets of eibach springs I'm going to be selling. One for quattro saloon and one for avant. I'll check the part numbers.

    ok just checked, the avant kit is 1539-140, spring part numbers : front 1532 001, rear 1538 002.

    The saloon springs are from a Bilstein B12 kit I have so no part number on the box, but spring part numbers are : front 1531 001, rear 1534 002, so i think that is the 1534-140 kit.

    The link from ebay i ordered where the exact ones that you need to get the ride height sitting equal. I ordered them from asking many questions and getting alot of answers from aragorn.
