    Lowering springs for a B7 saloon

    I am looking to buy a set of lowering springs and have narrowed it down to two sets for my B7 saloon.

    It is either the Eibach or H&R lowering springs. Has anyone got pictures showing the drop with either of these springs?

    Thanks.

    Search function if your friend...

    Also it depends if you're looking at the 30mm or 45mm (H&R) or the sportline (I think?) or the other model of Eibach.

    I've got 30mm H&Rs on my A4, but it's not a saloon so probably of no use to you. The 45mm H&R springs make it sit as it should've done from the factory.

    Go for H&R, and get them from this guy: Sonstiges, Pflege Wartung items in autoteilemann store on eBay!

    Having said that, either H&R or Eibach will do the same job

    Personally I'd go for the Sportlines, I find the stance better.

    Where did you get those Rotor wheels from? I have a grey Cab and think they'd look good on mine, too.

    Some good pics there! Is it just me or does the front sit slightly higher on both the H&R 45mm and Eibach Sportlines? I've just bought a set of H&R 45mm to replace a broken set of FK coilovers, i'm in two minds wether to get a B5 perch plate too?

    I'm in the same boat, can't decide which ones to go for, and more importantly how much to drop it, 30, 40, 45, 50?????

    Depends if ur quattro and s-line as they are different again, neither do 40/50 lowering springs for the quattro, just 30 is it (all i can find), same with s-line. the 40/50's are for non sline/quattro cars. this is probably as it's 25 lower already..

    Coilovers your option if you want lower.

    To Do: Coilovers, Sport Cat RAI/034, Milltek Cat Back, Revo Stage 2+, & finally take a break?!

    35mm H&Rs are only for FWD cars, 45mm for Quattros.

    I have 35mm H&Rs on standard S Line shocks.

    Hi
    Will be upgrading to 18" wheels from my 16" ones shortly on my 2005 B7 SE (aka poverty spec). Will be getting H&R springs, but should i lower this by 35mm or 45mm? Fancy the latter but want to be 100% sure won't have any issues by going 45mm lower. Also this H&R springs set is only 160 euros (+ 10 euro delivery) from germany, but does anyone know if its the 35mm or 45 mm set?

    They are 45mm springs for 6 cylinder quattros, If your car is FWD and not 6 cylinder you need 29369-1.

    Cheapest I could find when I got mine were Larkspeed.com, £152

    Thanks mate, so will these be suitable for my FWD B7? They're €137, which is roughly £115:

    S Line suspension IMO is probably not the most comfortable....and my car on 65K could do with a refresher on the ride handling....

    Any recommendations on a shock / spring setup?

    I already said you need 29369-1, do you not trust me. Google the number or check on the H&R website!!

    Does seem a bit steep, they can be a bit of a PITA and time consuming, maybe the garage has done and struggled with plenty before!! I wouldn't pay that tho, I'd be thinking more 150-200.
