    Lowering Springs

    Damian,
    Looking for some advice on lowering springs as totally confused after reading loads of threads. I have an A3 S Line 170TDI on a 57 plate.
    Now I am looking at dropping it about 20-25mm and getting a better ride. The current S Line springs are too harsh for the roads round my way.
    From what I understand, the S Line is already lower than the SE and Sport.
    Question is what drop do i need to lower from S Line to go another 20-25mm and which in your opinion are the best springs to go with? From reading the threads it looks like a toss up between H&R and Eibach. I dont however want it to have the front sloping down. Ideally keep it as is but just 20- 25mm lower all round.
    Hope all this nonsense reads well and you can help me out.
    Regards
    Iain

    Morning,

    To get that drop you'd need around a 35-40mm spring kit, something like the H&R or KW are both good options and would give you a further 20mm on top of what you already have. If you wanted something a little lower H&R also do a 50mm kit which would give you around a further 30-35mm.

    Following on from my post I have spent hours on the net researching springs for my car.What is your opinion on the Vogtland springs? Have you sold many of them? They appear to be made by eibach and will give the exact drop I am looking for. Cheers. Iain

    Morning,

    Yes we sell a lot of the Vogtland springs and the build and ride quality on them is excellent, quite unknown in the UK but massive in Europe.
