    I need a rear Nearside Spring for my S4 BT , i looked all over Ebay, and ones that claim they fit when i ring the dealers they tell me that it doesn't (guess they don't check very well)

    can anybody point me in the right direction or a link to one that will fit please

    Theres almost no point buying used. 99% of B5 quattro rear springs will have sagged out or broken by the time they are removed.

    Your options are either to goto Audi and buy a new PAIR of rear springs (the pair is a must as they must match across the axle, and the one on the other side wont match the new one) which will cost you around £120.

    Or bite the bullet and buy a lowering spring kit.

    they'll fit, but probably won't be the correct spring rate.

    Correct. It'll sit a bit lower if you use saloon springs on an avant.
