    i've got standard springs and shocks off my b5 S4 if you want em? left over after coilovers fitted. slightly stiffer and lower than standard a4 I believe, not sure if they differ from quattro to fwd, depends what you've got, someone'll know on here i'm sure!

    sorry, my poor description, I actually need the suspension strut (technically speaking the bearing housing), not the shock absorber assembly.

    tried eBay, and all the local breakers, RS246, etc etc
