    1999 S4 Suspension Geometry

    Afternoon all - I am the proud new owner of a 1999 S4 - totally factory standard. I have taken the car to 3 garages (in France, which is where I live) to get the suspension geometry sorted. All 3 garages, including a VAG main dealer have different settings - the net result is that the car handles like a turnip now. Does anyone have the CORRECT settings in DEGREES and MINUTES (not mm's)?

    Yours hopefully...

    Sorry, it doesn't read to well on the screen but if you right click and 'save as' to your PC it will be fine

    Thanks! Funnily enough, that's the 4th different set I have - although closest to VAG.

    Thanks again.

    In fact - where did you find that data?

    I have the Bently Publishers repair manual on CDROM for the B5 A4/S4.

    Proved well worth the 10 from e-bay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Just wanted to say, THANKS! I took your data to the VAG workshop in Gap (south-east France). They used your figures for the geometry and WOW. It now feels like a sportscar rather than a powerful pudding! It's (nearly) as forgiving as my Integrale Evo I. Just not quite as quick...
