    A4 B5 Rear Shock Absorbers

    Just a quick question. Are the rear shocks on a 1.8T sport shorter than those of a standard height car i.e. 1.8/1.9tdi?

    I have sust fitted lowering springs to my car, and the front has dropped a good 40mm but the rear is heigher than with the standard springs [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    springs need to be bedded in properly. Not too sure as to why the rear is higher than standard. Have you checked that the new springs are defo shorter than the old ones?

    Springs are GSF brand, exactly the same as were fitted to my other A4, which droped the rear nicely. The springs are definately shorter than the standard springs, but the rear is definately higher than the standard height. Do the non quattro sport models have lowered suspension as standard?
