    Hi i recently had 2 rear springs replaced on my s3 8l but now the rear sits lower than the front. Im led to believe there are 2 different springs available to buy, does anyone have a part number ? Thanks

    Do you by any chance have your old springs, there are 2 different types, there are ones with grey dots and ones with violet coloured dots on them, you need to match them up and get the same ones that way.

    If you have a look on the forum, there is a parts database, so you should be able to get the part numbers from there.

    Also, have a look if you can see the front springs and see what colour dots are on them.

    The 3 digit codes listed dictate what options they are used for... these option codes can be found on the label in the boot

    You can enter the codes here to get an idea of the options

    I have had this with mine. Said to be standard springs for the S3 (by the chap who fitted them) but the rear of the car is lower now than the front. Thanks for the help.
