    Front wheel drive has a rear axle and the quattro has multi-link independent suspension ! Basically the passat b5 is built on the same platform as the a6 so if you have a quattro then you could fit passat syncro/4motion suspension on it. Are you interested in a set of Eibach Pro springs ? They are brand new in the box...Pm me for a price and pictures.
