    Shocks and springs please!

    Hi Damian

    Its about time I actually did something about my suspension considering it now squeaks when i get in and out.

    Could you add the numbers up for a set of Bilstein B8s for S3 8l and the H&R 25mm lowering springs please.

    I am also thinking about bushes, but i'm not sure whether to go for powerflex of stick with OEM...?

    Cheers

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Bilstein B8 dampers - 500.00
    H&R springs - 186.50

    Personally I think the Powerflex bushes make a massive difference and improvement to the handling and feel but it is personal choice.

    No they're not that bad. Yes they're stiffer but it's more just less play in the suspension.

    No problem, thanks again for the order.

    Love to hear what you think once it's all fitted.

    Hi Damian

    Finally got it all fitted, I went all out

    New;

    Neuspeed ARBs, ARB bushes and droplinks
    Adjustable Tie Arms
    Bilstein B8s
    HnR springs
    OEM Bushes
    OEM Top Mounts
    OEM Ball Joints

    and got it all realigned today,

    Bearing in mind all the old bits had done 73K...

    Feels great, bit firmer but not uncomfortable and doesnt roll or understeer around the corners, so much more confidence in it now


    Thanks for your help

    cheers
