    Hi,
    My A3 1.9 tdi was lowered on some jom coilovers and got to be honest it was to low, so took it in and i've had the following done:
    Front new wishbones, ARB droplinks and rear ARB Bushes and rear bumpstop's. The car has now got a right old racket from the front coilovers and the ride is very hard. I'm looking at putting it back to stock and was wondering if a complete 1.6. genuine suspension would be up to the job or do i need to replace from another 1.9tdi?

    Cheers for getting back, The mechanic has raised it up from less than iphone clearance :keule:to normal height. I went out and sprayed some lube but all the spring and shocks are creaking and look quite rusty. Hopefully fingers crossed might be getting hold of a genuine audi suspension which should sort it.
