    Yes, the dampers and springs are weight specific. Other than that I don't think they are any different. I could be wrong.

    If its just dampening etc i'd just get them as coilovers are adjustable to any ride height you want anyway.

    The FWD and Quattro kits are different from JOM.

    Just wondering, if you were keeping it would be worth going a bit more like AP's etc. But if you're selling up then i would stick with the joms!

    So I started fitting the coilovers today any wouldn't you know after fitting the drivers rear the heavens opened so Mother's Day is canceled tomorrow lol, I was wondering would I be better off leaving the original shocks in the back and just using the new springs,obviously the audi shocks would be better quality than what came with the kit??

    Not so sure that's a good idea, dampening rates are usually matched to the springs and there might be differences in overall length of the shock and or travel of the shock. In saying that though it could be worth a try but remember your Audi shocks have probably done a fair mileage on them so although better quality when new are they still as good now?? To save any future hassles I'd just change them.

    Ya I will be changing them any way,what I noticed was it was much easier to push the technix shock down by hand than my audi one that's where my original thought came from,I'll soon find out how they are
