    I'd like to drop my S line 2009 A5 slightly but am not sure which springs to go for.

    It sits up at the front more so ideally I'd like a drop of around 20mm on the back and 30mm on the front.

    The car has 20" wheels with 20mm rear spacers and 12mm front spacers.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the reply Damian.

    Does the S line share the same shocks as the sport and SE?

    IE, are the springs the only difference?

    No I believe the shocks are different as well but if you can get the part number from them I can check for you.

    Ok chaps.

    Fitted a set of Eibach pro kit springs yesterday.

    The springs may need to settle a bit but the front end is too high compared to the rear for my liking.

    The rear is almost too low.

    Would it be a complete no no to refit the standard rear springs whilst keeping the Eibachs in the front to level things out?
