    Theres almost no point buying used. 99% of B5 quattro rear springs will have sagged out or broken by the time they are removed.

    Your options are either to goto Audi and buy a new PAIR of rear springs (the pair is a must as they must match across the axle, and the one on the other side wont match the new one) which will cost you around £120.

    Or bite the bullet and buy a lowering spring kit.

    they'll fit, but probably won't be the correct spring rate.

    Correct. It'll sit a bit lower if you use saloon springs on an avant.
