    Front suspension all the same?

    Is it the same for quattro sport and noal fwd? I was under the impresion it was but just bought a febi bilstein kit and on there system it says the top arms are different for the quattro sport to a normal fwd? Are all b5s not the same with the s4 just having stiffer bushes?

    The sport models (red struts) are 20mm lower than the non-sport models.

    It could be the case that they are listing the kits for the straight armed cars and the curved. I know the straight arms tend to be for later cars but can be used on the earlier as long as the both sides are done.

    Seeing that the "quattro Sport" designation didnt come out till later, i can only assume thats where the differences lie

    They got back and it's just the 4 upper arms are beefed up compared to a normal a4.

    S4's have "beefed up" rubber bushes on the inside of the top arms.

    Craig fitted normal ones to his car though and its fine.

    The guy said it was just that the upper ones were befed up. Think he said its the kit for the s4 im getting. Not sure if all the bushes are stiffer or not. 300 for the set so slightly cheaper than the lemforder ones but febi bilstein are a reputable name so they should do the job.
