    RS3 Springs & Spacers

    Hello all just a quick question, I pick up my car Monday and I have a couple of plans for her straight away...
    I am going to be fitting a set of h&r springs along with the scorpion decat pipes. Does anyone have these springs fitted as I was wondering what the biggest spacers I could fit without any rubbing? It has the standard wheels and tyres on the front (not the 255 & 8.5j upgrade)

    The wait is a killer but once I have her I will post some pics! Cheers

    ........ To Come, Sachs clutch & Fidanza lightened flywheel, BBS CH Reps, AP Coilovers, Rear tie arms & 20mm spacers & eventually MISANO red respray

    The customer hasn't reported any but a lot will be down to drop and also weather you often have a car full.

    is it necessary to also do sport shocks when changing springs ?
    was told with springs only oem shocks life is reduced & car wont handle well !!

    It's always best to change both the springs and shocks but depending on the mileage your shocks have covered and also what drop you go for sometimes you can get away with just doing the springs.
