    Newbee and probably annoying questions!!

    Please go easy on me, realise its frustrating for you guys but I have searched(inc several forums) but can't find a definate answer and sometimes conflicting ones.

    I want to lower my A4 S line 2wd saloon on springs, not coilovers and sort the reverse rake so it sits nice on my 19" Speedlines.

    I've read a lot about H&R springs supposibly lowering just the right amount and sorting the reverse rake without the need for B5(?) spring cups, is this right?
    The only H&R's specified for my car lower 35mm but on the S line that's only 15mm(?) so that looks no where near enough.
    Also read about H&R 45mm springs but only see them listed for 4WD cars on H&R's site, do these fit 2WD cars?

    Or do I go for Eibachs 50/40mm set up but I've read with this set up you do need the spring cups to sort the reverse rake, true or false?

    Just looking for clarification so I can start acquiring parts and really don't want to disassemble to fit springs then realise I wish I'd gone for spring cups.

    Thanks in advance, pictures and experience will be gratefully received!!


    Heres a pic of my wheels temporarily fitted to check heights etc, I'll be changing the colour of the wheels too, black wheels have never been my thing!!
