    Afternoon,

    For some reason there's doesn't seem to be any listings specifically for springs for the S4 B7.

    Do you know your front and rear axle weights and I can look further into this for you?

    Thanks, I'll look into this now for you.

    Is it just lowering springs or would you be interested in coilovers as well?

    The pictures are just for illustration purposes and may differ slightly but the rear height is adjuster with an adjustable spring cup.

    Hi Damain

    looking at the price of the coil over sets i would probably just go for a set of lower springs have you had any luck with sourcing these yet ?

    thanks

    Just waiting to hear back from H&R who seem to offer a specific spring kit for the S4 B7 in the US so just checking if it's available here in the UK.

    Morning,

    H&R UK are still waiting to hear back from Germany but it looks like if they are available they'll be around £300.00.

    Once H&R get back to us on weather or not it's available in the UK, we'll then be able to get a price for it.

    30mm/25mm

    Still nothing back I'm afraid and I've chased them a few times now, it doesn't look like they're available in the UK but I will keep trying.

    No one else seems to offer lowering springs for the S4, just coilovers.

    Afternoon,

    After chasing and chasing H&R I'm still no closer to getting an answer from them so at this stage I would say the springs aren't available here in the UK.
