    My 95 A4 2.6se needs some new suspension, its getting a little bouncy, unfortunatley i can't afford a nice set of coilovers like everyone seems to recommend so need to look for alternatives, maybe something like these? any thoughts, suggestions.

    why do you need coilovers? are you planning on changing the ride height or rebound rate much?

    I'd just settle for some springs and dampers, and pocket the change from the coilovers...

    The ride height is already lower, i bought some lowering springs not long after getting the car. The shocks have now done nearly 110,000 miles and are pretty worn.

    For a budget priced kit they're good and had many a satisfied buyer. Personally i'd wait and save up and go for something like the H&R or Eibach kits. Either way i'm sure we'll be able to sort you a good deal out!
