    I have got 2006 Audi 8P and I bought JOM coilies had those fitted, very comfortable although didn't come with drop links, any suggestions it's seems like quite a far distance from coilies to the drop link bar (which ATM bangs on wishbones).
    Thanks

    FK tuning does adjustable end links and so does whiteline. I have whiteline on my car and they seem to work well.

    In NZ. ECS tuning has them or just find a whiteline dealer locally.

    Hmm. My joms were wound right down and never hit anything! I actually had miles of clearance. Standard drop links too. Strange.

    do JOMs have helper springs? You may have left yours in and the OP may have removed his.

    In relation to clearance, i never had a problem with this. I'm not a suspension expert, but I upgraded mine so I could reduce preload on the front sway bar and back within spec after lowering.

    If its 35 youll defo need a 205, although my guess would be your wheels are 45 in which case a 215 will suffice to obtain clearance needed.

    thanks bud, your help is much appreciated honestly. I do have picture, but I can't tell if it's 35 or 45, I will need to take them off tomorrow and have a look.
