    Hi guys, Just wondering if the rear adjuster is meant to sit on top of the spring on the rear?.
    The adjuster wont fit on the lower mount, but seems to be a poor fit if fitted with the adjuster above the spring.
    Or I have the wrong rears?

    Cheers

    I had a Golf before Audi and they didnt fit properly on the perch, so angle grinder and just trimmed them enough to fit but yes they fit on bottom.

    Was that a quattro mate? My problem is the internal diameter of the threaded part of the adjuster being too small for the lower mount, So I cant really trim anything off it with a grinder :/.

    Basically you have the rubber perch and in the centre of that a rubber bumpstop which is metal underneath a coat of rubber, just trim that down, maybe different on Audi.
